Rotten: Letters to God is preaching to the choir.
- Annlee Ellingson, Moving Pictures Magazine, Thursday, June 24, 2010
Rotten: As well intentioned and sometimes well acted as this film is, it is not always able to rise above its own earnest agenda in order to tell its story in an absorbing manner.
- Carolyn Arends, Christianity Today, Thursday, June 24, 2010
Rotten: With little in the way of story or spectacle to offer nonbelievers, the film itself just preaches to the choir.

i walked into this totally blind, simply waiting for another feature to begin and having no prior knowledge of what to expect (for such is my will and my way!). it's another well-meaning movie-of-the-week, based on a true story (as practically everything is nowadays) about a poor shlump kid dying of cancer and writing the titular "letters to God" to deal. did i say "well-meaning" yet?

I was actually afraid this one might be really bad but it was actually a pure gem. I sobbed at the end. It was just a pure good movie. Parts were a bit cheesy but it was uplifting and encouraging. They may have been a bit too many music montages but it wasn't preachy and it was only lacking in acting talent in a couple minor areas. (It may have been poor scripting and the poor actors could do nothing about it.) Otherwise, what a great movie! I recommend it to anyone who wants to see a movie about a child who changes people's lives for the better.
