The Preacher's Wife

The Preacher's Wife
Reverend Henry Biggs is at his wits end with marriage problems, neighborhood issues and even threats to his own congregation. His prayers for help are answered in the form of Dudley, an angel sent to help him save not only his church, but his troubled marriage as well. Here are a few movie mistakes to look for while watching “The Preacher’s Wife”.

· The close-up of the collar when Henry sets it in the drawer shows it’s curled and touching the side of the drawer while laying on top of the other items. In the farther view, as Henry walks away, the collar has switched positions and is almost flat in the drawer.

· Dudley lands in the snow on the ground when he falls out of the sky. The close-up of Dudley shows the front of his coat and the brim of his hat are covered with snow. It cuts to an overhead view and most of the snow is gone from his chest. The snow returns when it cuts back to the original view. It’s gone again when he turns over and yells, “Wait”.

· Henry’s car won’t start when Dudley arrives near the passenger window. Henry rolls down the window until it’s about two inches from the bottom. It stays that way until Dudley tells Henry he’s an angel—the view shows the window has rolled up several inches.

“The Preacher’s Wife” (1996) stars Denzel Washington, Whitney Houston, Courtney B. Vance, Gregory Hines, Jennifer Lewis, Loretta Devine, Justin Pierre Edmund, Lionel Richie and Paul Bates. It runs 123 minutes and is rated PG for brief mild language.
