Movie Info

Adapted from the books by Neale Donald Walsch that inspired and changed the lives of millions worldwide, "Conversations With God" tells the true story of Walsch (Henry Czerny) who, at the lowest point in his life, asks God some very hard questions. The answers he gets from God/within become the foundation of an internationally-acclaimed book series that has sold over seven million copies and been translated into 34 languages. The film chronicles the dramatic journey of a down-and-out man who

A coda after the closing credits, encouraging divine dialogues in general, does little to dispel the hagiographic aftertaste.

A terminally muddled movie, uncertain as to whether it's promoting Neale, God, Mammon, Putnam Books or the capitalist exploitation of spiritual need.

Although Stephen Simon's film has the mawkish trappings of an inspirational tale, its unseemly emphasis on monetary matters makes Walsch seem less interested in the spiritual possibilities of his celestial networking skills than their financial benefits.

This film adaptation of Neale Donald Walsch's best-selling book series plays more like an infomercial than a thoughtful exploration of religious issues.

What He does want, according to Walsch, is for us to have jobs we really like, and to make money. Lots of money.

The story of Walsch's travails never strains credulity, though helmer Simon's predilection for spiritual vistas with light breaking through clouds, arrested close-ups and endless long dissolves often skirts kitsch.

The film is professionally mounted, smoothly constructed and carried with ease by Czerny's assured performance.

Resembles a vanity project that looks as though every frame was submitted by producer-director Simon to Mr. Walsch for his approval.

The facial hair that actor Henry Czerny is forced to wear in Conversations With God is ludicrous, even laughable -- as is much of this film.

The cinematography has all the flair and depth of your average episode of "Yes, Dear"; the score is a giggle-inducing juggernaut of obviousness; Eric DelaBarre's script contains virtually no believable dialogue; and Stephen Simons' direction carries the s

...boils down to the assertion that God is that voice in your head, a fairly innocent concept until God starts telling you to do something wrong.

Film Journal International

An amateurishly assembled movie-of-the- week-calibre feature with little dramatic energy for the depiction of a life-changing epiphany.

B movie w/ good heart. Not everyone will buy into the spirituality dogma, I'm not sure I do. But, there is a definite need for all of us to take a deeper look into our souls.

A conversation with God should be inspirational and moving, but this conversation loses some of the magnificence and glory when it's channeled through this very ordinary movie.

November 4, 2006 Full Review Source: TheMovieChicks.com

Simon has made a garish, lumpy, melodramatic and altogether unconvincing film about a man hitting bottom and then hearing a voice that helps him regain a place in the world (and a pretty rich place, at that).

Bomides of the most banal sort...If you don't already belong to the choir, the preaching isn't likely to make much of an impression.

Corny and harmless.

What Walsch's message ultimately amounts to is for theologians and consumers to decide, but this uninspired presentation certainly drains it of some mystery and risks turning his writings into the ultimate self-help guide.

The film has nuggets here and there, which hint of something more, but all we get are situation and opaque, one-dimensional characters.

October 28, 2006
Greenwich Village Gazette

What is unclear (to me, at least) is the process by which Walsch answered 'yes' to God's question and suddenly became a writer, doing what appears to be automatic writing of his first book.

Audience Reviews for Conversations With God

This American tale of burgeoning spiritual discovery is meant to be wonderful ... but instead is awkward, stilted and poorly executed (particularly when lingering on the wonderful that's not), thus insuring that I will treat the literature, should I ever run across it, with the same disrespect that this film treated me.

A movie emotive that make you think and that will inspire you to change your life and be a better person, it will make you drop a couple of tears. A great adaptation from the book that its based on true facts.
