Fresh: Comedy gold....Burns at his best!

- Clint Morris, Moviehole, Thursday, June 24, 2010

Rotten: George Burns seems to be warming up for a good Second City sketch on God's return to earth as a rumpled vaudevillian, but it soon becomes clear that director Carl Reiner isn't kidding -- he really thinks this movie is going to save the world.

4 stars

A very funny and meaningful film, after laughing you start to think. I really liked this movie, and I highly recommend it, the story is great, and the actors are too.

A classic movie with George Burns as God, and John Denver (bless his soul) as the chosen messenger for God's message. It's an enjoyable little movie. It sort of reminds me as "Miracle on 34th Street".

A vacuous little feelgood fantasy that sees god visiting Earth in the form of likeable veteran comic George Burns. It's a little inconsequential for adults, but kids will enjoy it.
