A Night in Heaven (1983)


“How did they know he was the composer?” – Mr. Raymer

“Oh well, when they opened the casket, he was de-composing.” – Rick Monroe

Number of Times Seen – At least twice (Cable in the 80’s and 1 Aug 2021)

Brief Synopsis – A college teacher, dis-satisfied with her life decides to have an affair with a student who works as a stripper.

My Take on it – This is a film that I recall seeing on cable as a kid and didn’t remember much about it at all.

The story is pretty bland and unoriginal in all that it does.

None of the characters are developed enough for the viewer to really care about what happens to them along the way.

The problems that these characters deal with as shown in a very superficial way which hurts things even more because it’s a chore to watch things play out in this very predictable way.

Leslie Ann Warren and Christopher Atkins aren’t able to make the audience care more about their characters and that’s quite a shame.

The best part of this song is the music by an unknown Bryan Adams which includes the debt of his song Heaven in the opening credits.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – The song “Heaven” by Bryan Adams appeared on the soundtrack of this film before the release of his album “Reckless” a year later (as the third single from the playlist – Adams insisted that the song was to be included when “Reckless” was released when his producer deemed the song as a power ballad which was not deemed as hard rock – the power ballad later paid off when Adams performed the theme song for the film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991)). It was recorded on June 6 and 7, 1983 at the Power Station in New York City. In April 1985, the song reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. (From IMDB)

Rating – Razzie Worthy (2/10)
