Pahrump Valley Gazette, Thursday, June 12, 1997 AAI ,q ? "Michael," a comedy mishmash by Barney Basin Gazette Reviewer "Michael" is a comedy that is made up of an extremely odd collection of filmland elements. The title role is played by John Travolta, a hot talent on his 33rd comeback. With Jean Stapleton, William Hurt, Bob Hopkins, Andie McDowell, and Robert Pastorelli, heading up the suppOrt- ing cast this film has an abundance of acting ability. , Nora Ephron, who once told the world about her marital problems by writing a cookbook, scripted this story. With this cornucopia of talent the flick should have been a hit with a bullet. For all its efforts this story doesn't stay airborne, but it does have moments of soaring brilliAnce. Considering the territory that this script tries to explore it is a surprise that it came offas well as it did. It is always dangerous grounds to attack traditional biblical stereo- types. Title character Michael is an angel, a wing-sprouting, wondrous doing, wish-granting angel. He also smokes and is sexually active. Puts a whole new meaning to the song title "There's an Angel in My Bed." Now of course the viewer is suppose to accept this because Michael is not a guardian angel, he's an archangel, a warrior on earth to fight evil with good, look that up in your Book of Revela- tions. Must have slept through the sermon. Besides fighting evil, smoking cigarettes and consum- ing confections, he has a voracious sweet tooth; he is also suppose to get two of the co-stars together. All of this angelic intervention makes you wonder how can love survive without heavenly help. If you're comfortable With this characterization you'll probably enjoy "Michael" as for this reviewer, if I ever meet my angel, I hope he doesn't blow smoke in my face. 1. ticl 2. 1om 4.
