Critic Reviews for Conversations With God

All Critics (45) | Top Critics (22)

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

Top Critic

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.

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.
