    A product neither of Hollywood nor the New York-Sundance indie axis, Manna From Heaven is a true outsider film, and while it would be easy to fault its lack of technical polish, somewhat discursive script and uneven performances, it is also refreshingly sincere, gentle and good-natured.

    Frankly, the story behind Manna From Heaven is a truckload more interesting than the movie itself.
  3. Colorful and cute. It would be better if it weren't quite so sitcommy and if it didn't outlast its ideas.
  4. 50
    Hokey, overstuffed plot and a messily hand-stitched, often illogical script.
  5. Suffers from an overcomplicated plot, an overpopulated cast, a lot of corny humor and artificial contrivance, topped by a sluggish pace.

    This family affair is a squeaky-clean cable-ready comedy, unabashedly retro fluff.

    The results are a bit amateurish, but wholesome and achingly sweet.
  8. Regrettably, neither cast nor crew is able to save it from itself.

    It's shot like a Lifetime-influenced student film, and the overall artlessness makes the spoony dialogue all the more glaring.
