Ted is a successful dog food marketer until one fateful day when he accidentally kills his company's iconic mascot and becomes the town laughingstock. Underemployed and in debt, Ted and his wife Josie are doing their best to make ends meet, but it's not enough. Josie is unhappy, so she concocts a plan to swipe her elderly boss' valuables in order to pay their debts. Accompanied by her lazy little brother, Ted and Josie attempt to pull off a caper but soon find that their intended victim has more in store for them than they thought.
A financially desperate couple robs a mansion, and becomes the victims themselves when they are trapped inside of it by a dying Christian man who will not let them leave until they've made a decision to follow Jesus.

Lame Christian comedy
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.
