  • Summary: A lighthearted comedic fable about what happens when you get a "gift from God" (a financial windfall), but many years later you find out it was a just a loan -- and it's due immediately. (Five Sisters Productions)

    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.

    This family affair is a squeaky-clean cable-ready comedy, unabashedly retro fluff.
  4. Suffers from an overcomplicated plot, an overpopulated cast, a lot of corny humor and artificial contrivance, topped by a sluggish pace.
  5. Colorful and cute. It would be better if it weren't quite so sitcommy and if it didn't outlast its ideas.
  6. 40
    The results are a bit amateurish, but wholesome and achingly sweet.

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