Penny Marshall directed this remake of the movie, "The Bishop's Wife". This version stars Whitney Houston, Courtney B. Vance, Gregory Hines, and Denzel Washington. The all-star cast brings an updated (and musically charged) version to the story of a preacher (Courtney B. Vance) who isn't feeling like he's in the right profession any more until he's sent an angel in the form of Denzel Washington. Whitney plays, of course, the preacher's wife, who becomes friends with Dudley (Washington) and helps her husband find his passion for preaching again. It's a wonderful addition to any Christmas/holiday movie list for sure!
