Bad trailers for great movies: 1987's 'Made in Heaven'



If you want to revisit some of Kelly McGillis' best work in the '80s, consider the 1987 movie Made in Heaven. Of course, it helps that she's paired with Timothy Hutton; the two stars share a chemistry that Top Gun pal Tom Cruise couldn't comprehend. 

Made in Heaven, the story of two would-be lovers who meet in heaven only to be separated by the laws of "up above" and forced to find each other again on Earth, rarely makes a cable appearance, so you'll have to hit up Netflix's DVD plan or fork over some coins to buy or rent it online. But whatever you, don't judge the movie based on its theatrical trailer, which is a strange mix of poorly chosen dialog, cliche narration and special effects stolen straight from Xanadu. Cringe all you want, but trust me: This is an '80s movie you NEED to see in whole.
