AMY and the angel
24 March 2006 | by kdjb13See all my reviews

its actually Amy who is depressed hence AMY and the angel it was Amy who wanted to Kill herself that's why the angel came down to help her Sara the one with the curly hair is Amy's friend and it was Amy's temper that got Sara angry Helen is great in this where even Meg Ryan wasn't that good Helen is a wonderful actress and the reason why i got this sent around the world to me. Helen later stared as Supergirl which is the best movie ever there must be people out there that love it like me. At the end of this after school special Amy is OK looks happy and learns to accept and enjoy her life as she because she found out what it would be like if Amy Watson did not exist. Helen shines the rest just fade away
