There are many good reasons for going to see The Preacher's Wife. Full Review
Washington Post

Rating: 3/4 -- This movie could have done more, but what it does, it makes you feel good about. Full Review
Chicago Sun-Times
Jan 1, 2000
Rating: 7/10 -- The music, the chemistry between Houston and Washington, and minor characters that make us smile make this film worth watching-especially around Christmas, when this is set. Full Review

Aug 6, 2012
Rating: B -- One flash of Washington's warm, genuine smile is enough to hook anyone. There is a sincerity, a gentleness and a kindness that comes across no matter what role he plays and this one lets those qualities shine. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- Denzel's Christmas angel meets Whitney's voice. Full Review
Common Sense Media
Dec 18, 2010
Rating: 2/4 -- While the sheer force of Washington's charisma keeps his otherwise monotonous character watchable, the same can't be said for the late Houston, woefully flat in a malnourished role. Full Review

...[A] likable, modern musical fairy tale....Director Marshall creates a very pretty, near postcard-perfect environment for this fantasy....[A] handsome piece with plenty of heart...

In this updating of 1947's THE BISHOP'S WIFE, a Baptist preacher unknowingly pays too much attention to his congregation, and not enough to his dedicated wife and son. Enter Dudley, a flirtatious, sharp-dressed angel, to help the couple build a new church and, not incidentally, reignite their marriage. Academy Award Nominations: Best Original Musical or Comedy Score.

Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment.:

The Preacher's Wife
Starring Academy Award(R)-winner Denzel Washington (Best Actor, TRAINING DAY, 2001) and multi-talented Whitney Houston (WAITING TO EXHALE), here's a delightful romantic comedy to send spirits soaring! Washington plays a charming angel named Dudley who's sent to earth to help a young minister (Courtney B. Vance -- DANGEROUS MINDS) and his beautiful wife (Houston) revive their marriage! But things take a hilarious twist when Dudley accidentally falls in love with the preacher's wife. From director Penny Marshall (A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN) and featuring screen favorite Gregory Hines (RENAISSANCE MAN), this critically acclaimed comedy hit also showcases nine dynamic songs by Grammy Award-winner Houston, including the Top 10 hit "I Believe In You And Me."
