Dove Review

“Heaven Bound” is a movie that will make you laugh. It features a bumbling criminal and several slapstick scenes. It incorporates a faith message, too. The plot focuses on a couple who have hit rock bottom and their effort to climb back up to financial stability. They plot to steal jewelry from a man, but he catches them. He locks them in his home, determined not to let them out until they are spiritually saved. The film has a lot of humor, including Doc (Danny Vinson) showing the couple, Ted (Michael Joiner) and Josie (Nancy Stafford), the DVD of “Fireproof” to help them improve their marriage. Other comedic moments include slapstick and physical acts of comedy. Ted and Josie do become Christians, and their marriage is saved, and a job opportunity comes along as well.

Another example of the humor is shown in the character of “Moochie” (Torry Martin), who mooches off everybody. In a funny scene, he hits himself in the head while working out with nunchucks. We are pleased to award this funny movie our “Faith-Friendly” Seal for ages 12 and older, although parents should consult the content listing, as they may be fine with kids a bit under 12 watching it.
