Movie Info

A wandering black sheep attempts to gain his angel wings when his large inheritance turns out to be a small church in director Tom Reeve's touching tale of love and redemption. Raymond (Andrew McCarthy) has never been the most popular member of his family, but thanks to a little help from his generous brother Otis, Raymond has always managed to scrape by even in the hardest of times. Just when it seems that things couldn't look any worse, Raymond receives word that he has inherited a property on the English countryside. Upon arrival, Raymond discovers that the property is neither an expansive manor nor a cozy house, but instead a decrepit stone church on the edge of ruin. When conniving village businessman Malcolm Slee (Bill Treacher) approaches Raymond about purchasing the property so that he may ransack the place in search of King Charles' mythical treasure rumored to have been hidden there at the end of the English War, Raymond initially agrees before learning from local bed and breakfast owner Rachel (Louise Lombard) that a poor family has taken shelter in the crumbling house of worship. With the bond between Raymond and Rachel growing ever stronger, and a little help from a friendly young orphan named Diggity (Max Dolbey), Raymond may shed his shady ways and make it to the pearly gates after all.

Audience Reviews for Heaven Must Wait

Well meaning and sincere story, nicely filmed, good scenery and the characters are reasonably well developed. It’s a little slow at times and not particularly memorable, but it’s pleasant enough.
