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 film equipment was stolen during shooting, threatening to shut down the film - but it was returned a day later by a pawn-shop owner. The pawn-shop owner only said, "I want the sisters to keep making their movie." (the robbers also left their real names and address at the pawn shop.) See more »
Did it ever dawn on any of you that there was something queer about that dough?
Dawned on me.
What do you mean?
The cops didn't cordon off the neighborhood. They didn't pound on our doors and give us 24 hours to turn it in or charge us with theft. That was a lot of dough, and nobody ever came after it.
Well, if they show up now, they're thirty years late and thirty three hundred dollars short.
Double that. Every cent I got is tied up in "Ace Dealers School", the best dealers' school in ...

When I first saw the movie, I thought it was sweet - a family movie. For the rest of the night and over the next couple of days, though, clever moments and funny lines kept creeping back into my thoughts and our conversation... There's a lot going on, classic elements of farce, good character acting, and Wendie Malick's story line is just hysterical. Labelling it a "feel-good movie" belies the wit and fun - it's smarter than it seems, just like "It's a Wonderful Life" is.
