You can tell what Manna wants to be -- a light-hearted-yet-profound, feel-good flick in the same vein as It's a Wonderful Life -- but it falls woefully short.
It's shot like a Lifetime-influenced student film, and the overall artlessness makes the spoony dialogue all the more glaring.
Too cute by half and at least a half-hour too long.
The five sisters responsible for the old-fashioned fable 'Manna From Heaven' have a lot of plates spinning in the air -- but even their 10 hands aren't enough to overcome the hokey, overstuffed plot and a messily hand-stitched, often illogical script.
While it would be easy to fault its lack of technical polish, somewhat discursive script and uneven performances, it is also refreshingly sincere, gentle and good-natured.
The Burtons' hearts are in the right place, but they need to get more tough-minded.
Well-meaning movie will bore younger kids
The quality of the film doesn't quite match the loving care placed into it.
A flimsy, overcomplicated little comedy that--despite the title--is hardly a gift to audiences, divine or otherwise.
Like manna, the movie is sweet but a little thin.
The movie's cloying cuteness and homespun sanctimony make the low production values even harder to forgive.
You may pull a muscle trying not to cringe as such long-time screen veterans as Shirley Jones, Cloris Leachman and Frank Gorshin embarrass themselves with over-the-top performances.
