Editorial Reviews

Sarah Miller (Florence Henderson), known to her grandchildren as "Nanny," is still slim and athletic in her early seventies. She's a successful author, feisty, intellectual and full of fun. Her granddaughter (Stephanie Patton - "Shadowheart") is closet to her and together they prepare Katie's 11th birthday. But before it arrives, Sarah suffers a fatal heart attack and finds helrself on a celsetial roller coaster on route to heaven. Not particularly religious, Sarah is nevertheless accepted into Heaven, and begins her preparation to meet her parents, the love of her life and others that past before her. Back on earth, Katie is not taking her grandmother's passing lightly and on her 11th birthday she collapses and is rusehd to the hospital. After heavenly bureaucratic rambling, Sarah gets one last chance to visit her granddaughter on earth, and appears to Katie in the hospital. Katie wants nothing more than to join her grandmother in heaven, but Sarah convinces her that life on earth is beautiful journey worth experiencing. For Heaven's Sake is an emotional, life affirming roller-coaster ride for the entire family, with resounding overtones of faith.

5.0 out of 5 stars A marvelously clever movie that you'll feel for January 7, 2009
This was a very cool surprise. My friend suggested we watch it. I thought I was going to see a movie with an emphasis on religion. But I was immediately caught up in the story. To coin a cliche' "I laughed, I cried, I loved it!"

Written by the very talented Ann Marcus "For Heaven's Sake" is a story about a Grandmother who makes a promise to be at her granddaughter's birthday party. At a moment when the grandmother discovers that her deceased husband may have had an extra-marital affair, she has a heart attack and dies. She finds herself in heaven. But it is nothing like she would have imagined. It is a bureaucratic monolith, hugely unorganized. She finds out that her husband, who is also there, may be seeing the woman he may have had an affair with, but she can't just catch up with him yet. Instead, she insists on being able to go back to keep her promise to be at her granddaughter's birthday. The bureaucrats in heaven try to accommodate her. Meanwhile, she is able to use their computers to go back in time and relive moments of her past with her husband.

Marcus craftily weaves the serious with the comedy. It is a high wire act in screenwriting and Marcus pulls it off fantastically. This is the same Ann Marcus who won an Emmy Award for the cult TV classic, Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman.

Director, Nat Christian handles the clever material with a sophisticated hand of a very accomplished filmmaker. He skillfully unfolds the story, also weaving the story lines together so that the laughs do not get in the way of the very touching moments that grab your heart.

Florence Henderson stars as the grandmother, and I have never seen Ms. Henderson better. She is both real as an actress and plays the comedy in a real way, which works famously.

2.0 out of 5 stars Heaven is groaning April 23, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
My wife had sung at an event with Florence Henderson. She remembers her as a sweet and engaging person. She is, the movie wasn't. Theology and story much like a prize out of a cereal box - free and highly anticipated; once opened plastic and quickly lost.

This movie is not worth your time; though the premise is good, the storyline does not develop into anything worth keeping your attention. The situations in "Heaven" are shallow.

1.0 out of 5 stars Definitely not for heaven's sake. November 25, 2013
By Pilgram
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Definitely not for children and too absurd for adults. I am not sure what the point of the movie was. I was not able to finish watching it. Not for those who respect the Lord.

1.0 out of 5 stars Skip it January 20, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
The actors were great. The script was terrible, the story weak. It might be appropriate for an elementary aged child who is very fond of a grandparent.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for me March 2, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
It was ok but not what I was expecting. Very slow pace and it jumped around. It had great appeal on the cover but fell short

1.0 out of 5 stars CRAP! CRAP! CRAP! June 4, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Thinking that this was a christian related movie I purchased it, I on the same day I recieved it could not stomach more than 30-45 minutes of the film. I dumped this piece of garbage due to several factors. 1.) Florence Henderson's character professes to be agnostic or aethist, and 2.) when greeted by an individual who states he an processor send those whom have been accepted in to heaven to an orientation classes. Then further states everyone is accepted believer, non-believers and so on. 3.)The lanugauge. 4.) the entire tone reeks of a movie made to undermine true christian beliefs.

1.0 out of 5 stars Review for For Heavens Sake
Really didn't care for this movie at all. It was less than mediocre at best. Kept waiting for it to get better...didn't happen. The best part was the ending... cuz it was OVER.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a good movie for any age
Poorly written and worse acted. Henderson was Ok but she could have done better. The movie only makes sense if you've had a martini or two.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cliche and trite
Predictable, silly, a feel-good wanna be that just didn't pull it off. I think Florence Henderson's forte was Carol Brady.
