Time Out says

An undistinguished gentle comedy that turns into an astoundingly saccharin melodrama, Magnifico focuses on the good deeds of a saintly nine-year-old Filipino boy (Manio). Little Magnifico is so wonderful that when his impoverished family worries about purchasing a coffin for the dying grandmother, the lad decides to build one himself. As he stretches a tape measure across the sickly woman so that he can correctly size the box, he and Grandma share a belly laugh. The noble, boring acts continue apace until the spectacularly sentimental and manipulative ending.
