Synopsis


The Preacher's Wife
An angel wonders if love can be Heaven on Earth in this family-themed romantic fantasy. Rev. Henry Biggs (Courtney B. Vance) is the pastor of a struggling Baptist church in a poor section of New York City. Biggs is devoted to serving his flock and his community, but things are not easy; membership is down, money is tight, the furnace is broken, and real estate mogul Joe Hamilton (Gregory Hines) wants to buy the property and put up condominiums. The strain is taking its toll on Biggs' marriage to his childhood sweetheart Julia (Whitney Houston), and in a moment of desperation, he prays to the Lord for help. The prayer is answered in the form of Dudley (Denzel Washington), an angel sent to earth to assist Biggs. The preacher doesn't believe that Dudley is a divine being, but he'll take any help he can get, while Julia, who thinks that Dudley is just another community volunteer, welcomes him into their home. However, Dudley is sidetracked in his earthly mission when he finds himself falling in love with Julia. Leading lady Whitney Houston takes the opportunity to sing several gospel numbers along the way. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    This is a great movie with a wonderful message. The message is that even when circumstances seem to be at their worse, God will take care of us if we seek His guidance & have faith that He is in control. And that God's will is not always what we have in mind but His will is always what we need. Whitney Houston, Courtney B. Vance, & Denzel Washington lead a stellar cast in this wonderful Christmas movie. My family & I love to watch this movie all year round.

    I just love hearing Whitney Houston sing. Denzel is great in his role to help others yet he knows he has to refrain from acting on his own feelings as an angel.

    Made a unbelievable story line believable. The boy actor was very cute and how can you go wrong with Denzel Washington being in it.
