--> Michael: Then what happened was, he came as a hundred mouths, open and stinking with decay... and he tore at my flesh from every angle of Heaven. I grabbed Beelzebub's blue tongue in my fist...
--> Grandpa: Woah man, who is Beelzebub ?
--> Michael: Beelzebub is Satan.
--> Grandpa [impressed]: Oh. Satan.

Michael was a modest box office hit, earning $119,718,203 in the worldwide market. Most of it from the United States, where it was the 16th most successful film of its year. It faired poorly outside its native country. Critically it was a failure, mostly seen as a romantic fable with several flaws (its episodic nature rather than coherent narrative; the peculiar resolution of an angel playing matchmaker). Travolta and Hurt were praised for their performance-- the other cast members, not so much.

The film starts with the workings of the "National Mirror", a Chicago-based tabloid which specializes in unbelievable tales. Vartan Molt (Bob Hoskins), the editor, has just heard the story of an old woman living with an actual angel somewhere in rural Iowa. He immediately sends a team to investigate. Well, it's not exactly the best team, but it will have to do. Frank Quinlan (William Hurt), is a cynical reporter whose career has declined over the years. Huey Driscoll (Robert Pastorelli) is a naive photographer. His main claim to fame is bringing to the newspaper Sparky the Wonder Dog, its recognizable mascot. The dog joins missions and has become a media darling, since for some reason the public loves it. The trio is accompanied by newbie Dorothy Winters (Andie [=MacDowell=]), a supposed "angel expert". Actually, a dog trainer intended to replace Huey, not that the other two know.

* BloodKnight: Well, he ''is'' an archangel. This being a comedy, however, this only surfaces when he challenges a bull (and loses) and gets into a BarBrawl.
