Gentle, but significant

This is a warm, inclusive film. Maybe there's a bit of nostalgia in my comments, but I appreciate this movie's approach to faith. God comes in a form that our modern society seems to enjoy dismissing-- the elderly. It's a delight to George Burns, who really does have all that mileage on him, and John Denver, whom no one will mistake for Laurence Olivier, create this relationship between the mundane and the spiritual that is relatable, relaxed and relevant. In our culture, we already know about the forbidding and the punishing, and the hostility between faiths. But here's a God who says, paraphrasing here, "Jesus was my son. Moses was my son. Mohammed was my son. Buddah was my son. And so are you. And so is the guy who's charging you 18.50 for a piece of room service roast beef." Inclusive, with gentle humor. Burns' performance suggests a being who has seen a lot of the world, and doesn't expect anything of importance to happen quickly. It's a loving and practical relationship between the everyday and the sacred. And the old hands, Barnard Hughes and Paul Sorvino, and the whole gang of great character actors, make this a treat to watch. And gee, having Teri Garr play exasperated. That's like asking Pavarotti if maybe he'd like to sing something. Maybe a bit sweet for your taste, I don't know. For me, I can actually watch it whenever it comes on and enjoy every moment of it. (Like Paul Sorvino as a money grubbing preacher, protesting, "And I PERSONALLY have been invited, to give the benediction.....at the SUPER BOWL!!!!"

Do they make em like that anymore?

I was reminded of this wonderful gem of a movie the other night when I watched Bruce Almighty again with some friends. That's been a favorite of mine in these last few years. Anyway it reminded me a little of Oh God for obvious reasons, the references to God, and the thought provoking quality mixed with wit and intelligent comedy. Oh God was one of my favorite comedies growing up. It definitely is the kind of comedy that doesn't get made anymore unfortunately. I have yet to read the other reviews of this and hope to find some tens besides me, because while this was by and large a comedy, it was a delightful one and one that still lingers in my thoughts which is obviously why I decided to do a review. Comedies, when they are perfectly made, deserve 10's. This is a 10 and one of the most thought provoking and beautiful comedies ever made. I am sure there are many growing up now, whole hosts of people, who have yet to discover this and I hope they do, particularly those who are fans of Bruce Almighty and are not aware of this wonderful movie from the 70's. And not being a sequel person, I was a bit surprised that the sequel to this was just as good. My vote is 10 of 10 for excellent.

One of the funniest movies ever!

Oh,God! is one movie I could see 1000 times and still be laughing. John Denver and George Burns were marvelous together and had a wonderful supporting cast around them.God coming to earth to give the message that He gave us the world and what is in it and that it is up to us to make it work is a wonderful message in this movie.This movie shows that the world lost A LOT when George Burns and John Denver died.This movie is funny without taking cheap shots at religion. I give it a rating of 10 out of 10. Considering that the 25th anniversary of this movie's original release will be in 2002,it would be wonderful if this movie was re-released theatrically then.
