First, there are angels. If you don't believe in such things this movie will annoy you whenever the angels are on the scene. If you do believe in angels you may be angry at the strange, "comedic" way they're portrayed. The casting is good, with several people who can actually act, but there's not much to be done with this mess. I suppose this was intended as some variant of "madcap romp". Many tired plot devices. I saw it through in ever-dwindling hope of something being worth my time. It wasn't. I don't plan to ever see this again.

"A Life Less Ordinary" by Yojimbo

A pair of angels are charged with making a spoilt heiress and her inept kidnapper fall in love. Danny Boyle's take on the rom com is clearly an attempt to break the Hollywood mainstream, but at least he did it with a little knowing charm. Clearly inspired by It Happened One Night with a pinch of True Romance thrown in for good measure, it has the flavour of a Coen brothers' film and Raising Arizona in particular. McGregor and Diaz make a handsome couple although they don't quite click, and the comic relief provided by Hunter and Lindo is a little too post-Tarantino try hard. It certainly has its moments, but the story feels more like a patchwork of ideas that don't quite come together, highlighted in particular by the mildly embarrassing animation during the closing credits. Quirky enough...
