God Said 'Ha!' (1998)

God Said 'Ha!'



Critic Consensus: God Said, Ha! plumbs poignant depths, but Julia Sweeney's sharp, graceful wit makes this one-woman monologue a wise, big-hearted burst of uplifting -- and perhaps therapeutic -- entertainment.

Julia Sweeney delivers an extended monologue that's so exquisitely written and so emotionally touching that she manages the near-impossible task of captivating the audience for 85 minutes with quite a demanding material.

Audience Reviews for God Said 'Ha!'

I watched this because I had 3 people in my family diagnosed with cancer, two of them lost there lives too it. This movie honestly though hardly even talks about it. It merely uses these people being diagnosed to tell a bunch of mini stories that happend during the 9months her parents and family lived with her again.
It's hardly funny. If I wanted to see something like this I would watch a stand up comedy night, not rent a movie. It's one woman, standing in one room, telling a boring and non-funny story for a long time.
It's not good at all.

Interesting concept with Julia Sweeney discussing cancer in the guise of a stand up routine...but it just doesn't work.
