Rating: 2/5 -- An uneasy amalgam or inconsistent attitudes, without enough humor or zaniness to divert attention from its questionable premise.

Rating: 80/100 -- I was struck by just how good Denver was. It's surprising he didn't get more roles based on his debut performance. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- Somewhere deep down, I think we all hope that God turns out to be like George Burns.

This wonderful comedy salutes human responsibility for making the world a better place and takes justifiable pot-shots at holier-than-thou hotshots. Full Review

Product Description:

Jerry Landers (a terrifically surprising John Denver) is an average guy in every sense of the word. He lives a completely normal, dull life, working at the local supermarket (where everybody, of course, knows him and likes him) and never doing anything out of the ordinary. That's why no one is more surprised than he is when God chooses to make himself known to the world through Jerry by sending him a typewritten, misspelled note granting him an audience with the Supreme Being. Jerry doesn't believe his eyes when God turns out to be an old, scrawny man (who looks a lot like George Burns). First, God must convince Jerry that he really is whom he claims to be; as Jerry grow closer and closer to him, he starts growing apart from his family--his wife, played by Teri Garr, thinks he has lost all his marbles. As Jerry goes public with God's message, his faith is tested every step of the way, resulting in a very funny and meaningful trial scene. This wry, thoughtful comedy from Carl Reiner, based on the novel by Avery Corman, carries a serious message about religion, faith, and the way people care for the world they've been given. George Burns is delightful as the forthright, wisecracking God; his scenes with Denver are cinematic treasures.
