Is It Any Good?

This is a decent, if trite, romantic comedy. While there are some discussions of spirituality and prayer, Undercover Angel isn't an overly faith-based movie, and it's nowhere near as heavy-handed as similar movies involving miracle-working angels. Still, the story sticks to the familiar formula that keeps the Hallmark Channel in business. There's a divorced mom looking for love in all the wrong places, a sullen teenager, a friend who "tells it like it is." Etc., etc.

That said, the acting is above average almost across the board. The performers seem to be doing the best they can with what little they have to work with. Just don't expect any surprises or twists in Undercover Angel. Nothing really distinguishes from all the other romantic comedies and all the other "angel gets his wings" movies out there, and the story goes in every direction you think it will from the first moment on.
