Manna From Heaven is a 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. Once upon a time, many years ago, a neighborhood in Buffalo, NY is mysteriously showered with 20 dollar bills. Theresa, a young girl who everyone thinks is a saint, doesn't have much trouble convincing her loose-knit "family" that the money is a gift from Heaven. Years later, Theresa, who has become a nun, has an epiphany that it is time to pay the money back, so she calls the eccentric group together to repay the "loan." The problem is, nobody wants to give back the money, nobody has the money, they don't know to whom it belongs, and most of them can't stand each other. Along the way, the characters learn about family, romance, reconciliation and redemption, and by working together they begin to realize their full potential. Written by
The sisters' parents play cameos in their films. In this one they are the bickering dance couple. See more »
Theresa doesn't look a day older. How does she keep her youth?
I keep mine in the guest room.
I knew Stanley Stanley when he was Marvin Marvin. The only thing he ever gave anybody free was the finger.
What do you have on him, Dottie? How'd you get the Caddie?
Just asked him.
Keep your secrets. I got my own.
You ever hear of sex appeal?
I gave already.
Dottie has lady fluid. You never freeze in her house. We have a choice between an old folks home and an igloo.
I'll get you some warm clothes ...

We went to see Manna from Heaven, my husband, two friends, and I and we all enjoyed the film. The characters are funny, the story is amusing and so much like real life. I think that is what I liked most, just seeing something believable, no murders, no sci-fi, just good, clean fun. It is something you could take your children or elderly parents to and not worry. How many of those are around anymore!!
