All Critics (20) | Top Critics (4)

With little in the way of story or spectacle to offer nonbelievers, the film itself just preaches to the choir.

Top Critic

There are so many characters basing their actions on what Jesus would do that Jesus just about deserves a co-screenwriting credit.

This faith-based/fact-based inspirational weepie allows no one to escape the saintlike glow of its terminally ill protagonist.

Top Critic

While Letters to God is certainly family-friendly, the blandness robs it of whatever emotion or redemption the filmmakers were shooting for.

Top Critic

This drama is unabashedly preachy but satisfying nevertheless.

Heavy-handed tearjerker about faith, death, and friendship.

Audience Reviews for Letters To God


Very "Preachy". Incredibly Hokey. I enjoy a good christian / spiritual movie every now and then, but this one was just a little too over the top for me. Even that sometimes I can overlook...but the acting was just so awful at times, that I found myself cringing.

i walked into this totally blind, simply waiting for another feature to begin and having no prior knowledge of what to expect (for such is my will and my way!). it's another well-meaning movie-of-the-week, based on a true story (as practically everything is nowadays) about a poor shlump kid dying of cancer and writing the titular "letters to God" to deal. did i say "well-meaning" yet?

The only thing good I can say about this film is I saw it for free. Other than that, this film is like watching the Hallmark Channel. Over the top chesseiness and just way to corny for a person to handle. Not to mention, acting and writing that is so flat, that even it's emotional situations cannot get you touched at all. Letters to God is a slow, bland, cheeseball film.
