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
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 ...

I would recommend this film to anyone who is searching for a relaxing, fun-filled, thought-provoking movie. The absence of sex, vulgarities and violence made for a most pleasant evening. I especially enjoyed the Buffalo scene, but that's probably because I live a short distance from there. Even so, this film could have been produced in any city; it's the theme that's so important here. I'm just grateful that Manna From Heaven dropped down on us. Try it...you'll like it!
