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.

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.

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.

This movie had such potential, and I wanted to rate it higher, but several aspects made that impossible for me to do. It was listed as a Christian movie, and I expected to watch this with my 11 year old granddaughter but when I previewed it, it included scenes of Katie's "Nanny" in bed with her future husband before marriage. Not acceptable or necessary for the plot, and not what I expected from the ad. Also, the explaination of "heaven" was just too comical and silly. If handled more tastefully, this movie could have been priceless because many of the sentiments and wisdom given during parts of the movie, plus the relationship between both Nanny and Katie, and the younger version of Sara and her husband were very touching. I will still watch it, but could have been so much more sensitive and meaningful.

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.

I'm all in for faith based movies, but I found this movie a little less than convincing. my mother always told me if you can't say something nice about somebody, say nothing at all. so I'm just going to leave it at that.

I am very disappointed with this movie. I was expecting a Christian movie, but instead got a movie that was theologically inaccurate. I barely made it through the movie and probably should have turned it off before it finished.

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.
