Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Oh, God!'s Biblical playfulness makes for more cute farce than divine comedy, but George Burns' sly performance as the Almighty gives this high concept gravitas.

Common Sense Says
Warmhearted '70s comic fantasy has positive messages.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Oh, God! is a comic fantasy in which the Almighty, disappointed with the way things are going, travels to Earth in the guise of a human to deliver his most important messages. He chooses a nonbeliever, an ordinary man to carry those precepts to the world. The teachings are "faith-based," not preaching any particular belief system, but hoping to inspire responsibility, compassion, and care for the earth and one another. The movie asserts only that there is one Creator (in this case, a whimsical and funny one) and that it's entirely up to the world's inhabitants to take advantage of everything he has put in place for them. Fine for kids and families who can accept this lighthearted approach to faith and who will appreciate the honesty and value of the ideas it presents. Profanity includes "hell," "crapshoot," "humping the checkout girls." There's some minor sexual content (skimpy nightgown, man getting out of shower naked from the waist up).
