Oh, God!

( 3 )

Overview

Adapted by Larry Gelbart from the novel by Avery Corman, the film stars John Denver as Jerry Landers, the assistant manager of a grocery store who is chosen by God George Burns to spread the Word to the rest of the world. Not surprisingly, Jerry is soon labelled a basket case: even his loving wife Bobbie Teri Garr doubts her husband's sanity. But there's enough evidence on Jerry's side for a panel of prominent clerics to demand that the hapless fellow prove in court that he's the agent of God. Donald Pleasence ...

Overview

Adapted by Larry Gelbart from the novel by Avery Corman, the film stars John Denver as Jerry Landers, the assistant manager of a grocery store who is chosen by God George Burns to spread the Word to the rest of the world. Not surprisingly, Jerry is soon labelled a basket case: even his loving wife Bobbie Teri Garr doubts her husband's sanity. But there's enough evidence on Jerry's side for a panel of prominent clerics to demand that the hapless fellow prove in court that he's the agent of God. Donald Pleasence was supposed to have an extended supporting role in the film, but the first cut ran too long, and Pleasence's dialogue was eliminated -- but not Pleasence himself, who retains his prominent billing and is seen doing precisely nothing in several scenes. Netting $30 million on its first run, Oh God was followed by two lesser sequels, both featuring Burns.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
In Oh, God!, director Carl Reiner and screenwriter Larry Gelbart avoid one-note redundancy by trading broad laughs for warm-hearted sentimentality. The movie's surprising charm owes a lot to the understated comic timing and charisma of vaudeville legend George Burns in the title role. Burns had removed himself from the public eye after his partner/wife Gracie Allen's retirement in 1958; he reappeared in 1975's successful The Sunshine Boys, for which he won an Oscar. Oh, God! continued his comeback streak. In his first movie role, singer John Denver had a natural, unforced presence that drew positive notices, but he would never again star in a major motion picture. Gelbart had worked with Reiner on Sid Caesar's Your Show of Shows, and he would go on to write the screenplay for Tootsie. Despite its potentially controversial nature, Oh, God! was a significant hit, and would spawn two mediocre sequels.

    Oh, God!

    George Burns shows his ability to be straight faced, while he has his audience in stitches with laughter. I left the movie with a refreshed spirit. Laughter is the wonderful gift this movie provides. It also makes us think about God and life. Thanks for the experience. Save this movie for times when you feel down.

    A spirited comedy

    Surely, George Burns' most memorable role is in this spirited comedy that defines what faith and religion should really be about. Loved its swipe at televangelists.
