Conversations With God (2006)
Critic Consensus: At some point in the conversation, God must have asked for a subtler, deeper film.
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 inadvertently becomes a spiritual messenger and bestselling author. … More

Critic Reviews for Conversations With God
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.
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.
Good New Age message but cheesy execution.
