|Theme Song Info|
Hayate no Gotoku! Heaven is a Place on Earth (Japanese: 劇場版 ハヤテのごとく! HEAVEN IS A PLACE ON EARTH) is the first movie of the Hayate no Gotoku! series. The film is an adaption of the manga and anime series Hayate no Gotoku!. The film was released in theaters across Japan on August 27, 2011 as a double-bill with Mahou Sensei Negima! Anime Final.
The film takes place towards the end of the summer holidays 2 weeks after Comiket or Natsucomi.
Nagi, Hayate, Maria, Kayura, Hinagiku, Ayumu, Chiharu and the Hakuou Three Amiga go to stay at Ayumu's vacation home in the country side after some persuasion (mainly of Nagi and Kayura). At first, Nagi believes it to be the perfect thing to do. But after they arrive at the place, she acts up because there are no video games or television there. As Hayate tries to get Nagi to admire the unique surroundings of the countryside, he suddenly sees a silver-haired girl standing outside the house saying something. He is then interrupted from his frozen state and looks back to see that she is gone. No one else seemed to notice her, making him intrigued.
In the night, Nagi woke to find someone to acompany her to the toilet, because of her fear of the dark. She calls Hayate to come with her. Not realising her reason for calling, Hayate instead asks her to see the starry sky that can't be seen in the city. Then the silver-haired girl appears again. Hayate tells Nagi to wait and follows the girl to a place from his memories...

- The movie takes place towards the end of the summer holidays after Comiket, however the Manga is currently at the begining of the summer holidays, so there is a time gap over what happened in between.
- When Chiharu says to Hayate that she and Nagi were really busy during the summer because of NatsuComi, a person who resembles Ruka can be seen sitting behind Nagi and Chiharu in the third flashback shot.
- Ayumu Nishizawa can be seen wearing a maid Uniform. (Reference to the fact that she lost the bet to Wataru when he said he would confess to Isumi earlier in the Manga, her punishment would be to wear a maid uniform at his new shop)
- When Hayate takes Nagi outside to look at the night sky, he says to her: "Sure, the night sky in Mykonos was pretty, but the sky in Japan isn't too shabby either, is it?" a reference to when they and Maria went to Mykonos Island during Golden Week.
- Hinagiku is seen fighting with the Shirosakura, which she got during the Golden Week Arc.
- On the DVD cover of the Hayate no Gotoku! Heaven is a Place on Earth +99 edition on a sleeping Nagi's shirt hinting that the name of the theme park is Tadami Yuen, also in Ayumu's grandmother's house has a poster of it scene in the background
