Heaven is for Real has an irresistible charming cast, an instantly fascinating true story and a heartwarming touch that will stay with you. The film as a whole though just didn't did deep enough into the story to make it a rich and memorable adaptation and the filmmakers made it more suitable for a Hallmark or Lifetime movie of the week, than an emotionally powerful movie that leaves an impact like its source material...[more]...
Plot: Based on a Patricia Cornwell novel, A district attorney wants to further her political dreams by solving an old murder. (IMDB)
OY! Luckily, certain things worked like Daniel Sunjata as the lead/ace detective. Annabeth Gish was solid as his partner but man was she underused and much like most of the characters, had weak writing behind her. I like Andie MacDowell especially in comedies but I couldn't buy her as the tough and independent DA. The writing and her lack of intimidation worked against her. The case was interesting and had twists thrown in but it drags and drags.
I appreciate how the flashbacks tried some techniques but they were distracting and what was with all those memory montages?
