I would not define this as a Christian movie. But it is a sweet romantic comedy/family movie. I think it is nice not to be afraid of what is going to be said or done that may go against how you live. This is a cute movie. I didn't keep it, I passed it on to someone that didn't know there were movies on the market without cussing in them
I wish I had read the negative reviews and not bought this DVD, which is now in the trash. It portrays the dead wife hanging around since her husband hasn't let her go (huh?) as if heaven pales in comparison to life on earth. Are you kidding? That is almost blasphemous. Will not God who made and sustains the universe, enthral us for all eternity??!! Hearing that this is mormon explains it - their god is a human who got promoted.
I had purchased this as a 2-pack video sale of Miracle Of The Cards with Heaven Is Waiting included. I would recommend the 1st video to anyone (it is an inspiring true story - even if it is a little sad to see what has happened in the years after the film was made (you can do an internet search about the main character)). I would not, however, recommend Heaven Is Waiting to anyone. The film is not Biblical and it is a subtle way to introduce some very dangerous concepts. Consider the premise of a man talking to his dead wife: The Bible clearly issues warnings against this kind of spiritualism (Lev 19:13, Deu 18:10-12, Isa 8:19-20, 1Ti 4:1...). Also consider that this man is still in a "relationship" with his wife. He is satisfied with this arrangement and does not wish to move on. However, his "wife" encourages him to have a relationship with another woman! This introduces a mild form of adultery! I don't want to sound too critical but at this point Christians should stop watching and throw this film in the trash where it belongs. I did not, since I was watching it with others, and I regret it. As we discussed the film afterwards, no one really seemed to think that this was worth watching. The film goes on with several other questionable scenes all slipped under the cover of a "cute", "humorous", "love story". I am surprised that this is even sold in Christian stores! It is hard to find truly good films today but they are out there - this is just not one of them.
