Elliott Gould is Max Devlin, a mean landlord who is run over by a bus full of Hari Krishnas. Flung into Hell, Max meets the devil (Bill Cosby), who offers him salvation if he can enlist three "unsullied" souls for the lower world. Given three months and some magical powers, Max returns
to the corporeal world and sets about rounding up three children (Adam Rich, Julie Budd, and David Knell). Despite an encouraging start, the film degenerates into typical Disney sentimentality.
