Lame Christian comedy
20 June 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Heaven Bound casts Michael Joiner as an ad executive who gets charge of the dog mascot of a dog food company and in a moment of carelessness gets the poor pooch killed. Of course he loses his job and all his friends and now sits at home alone while wife Nancy Stafford supports both of them.

Stafford is a nurse and she learns that her doctor Danny Vinson has a fabulous collection of jewelry he plans to sell to fund an orphanage. She decides charity begins at home so she and Joiner and her lame brain brother Torry Martin invites himself in on the caper.

Of course it goes bad, but instead of turning them in, Vinson who is a born again has some interesting conversations with them about their immortal souls and where they look like they are going for eternity. Give you a hint, it ain't Heaven Bound for them

This film reminds me of the Alec Guinness film The Detective where Guinness is Father Brown who solves the crime, but also preaches to master jewel thief Peter Finch about his immortal soul. Heaven Bound does not rise to the level of a G.K. Chesterton story.

To say the comedy is forced is putting it mildly. This one won't get many showings outside church.
