A Life Less Ordinary (1997)
A couple of angels, O'Reilly (Holly Hunter) and Jackson (Delroy Lindo), are sent to Earth to make sure that their next supervised love-connection succeeds. They follow Celine (Cameron Diaz), a spoiled rich girl who has just accidentally shot a suitor (Stanley Tucci) and, due to a misunderstanding, is kidnapped by janitor Robert (Ewan McGregor). Although Celine quickly frees herself, she stays with Robert for thrills. O'Reilly and Jackson pursue, hoping to unite the prospective lovers.

A great little comedy drama... McGregor has a talent for comedy that he doesn't seem to use to it's full potential.

The cast all round is excellent, the script is done rather well and the whole thing just seems to come together to make a charming and enjoyable little film. It's not one that I would watch over and over, but I watched it last night, last time I saw it must be around 15yrs ago... and I enjoyed it just as much as I did the first time... Much of the film I had forgotten, but no surprise there as I kinda have blank spots from 98-2003. :)

7/10 I almost gave it 8 just for the amusing credits... But I've seen better credits since this film came out and I'd have to go back and give them extra points too... and I'm not going to do that. :)
A funny if not flawed film, Mcgregor at his best
