Overview

Ever since the "Topper" movies made ghosts likeable and helpful, films like The Heavenly Kid have taken up the theme with varying degrees of success. In this version of life after death, Bobby Lewis Smith is a teen who dies in a drag race as he goes over a cliff. He then enters a curious "mass transit" system that will not take him "uptown" until he returns back to earth and gains a little more virtue. And so Bobby is assigned the thankless task of converting Lenny Jason Gedrick into a self-confident individual who can date women without fear not exactly on a par with bringing peace to the world, but this is a teen movie. There are some twists and turns along the way, though nothing shakes up the status quo or ventures beyond the already imagined.

    This is a wonderful movie for the whole family.

    They don't make them like this anymore. It's heartwarming and my daughter and I watch it every time it comes on tv. Now I'm buying it to make sure we can see it whenever we want.
