TV Guide's Movie Guide

Reiner does one of his best directing jobs and never resorts to some of the silliness he's demonstrated in other films. Denver is very affable and could have had a good movie career given the right material.

The result plays like an over-extended version of the Reiner/Mel Brooks 2000-Year-Old Man sketches.

Burns is the Lord, Denver is a store clerk. Yet it all works, thank God.

An uneasy amalgam or inconsistent attitudes, without enough humor or zaniness to divert attention from its questionable premise.

Carl Reiner's Oh, God! is a treasure of a movie: A sly, civilized, quietly funny speculation on what might happen if God endeavored to present himself in the flesh yet once again to forgetful Man.

This wonderful comedy salutes human responsibility for making the world a better place and takes justifiable pot-shots at holier-than-thou hotshots.

Somewhere deep down, I think we all hope that God turns out to be like George Burns.

Burns is everything we could hope for in a benevolent God--a kindly, reassuring voice; a sympathetic smile; a modest, unassuming manner; everyone's favorite uncle.

George Burns seems to be warming up for a good Second City sketch on God's return to earth as a rumpled vaudevillian, but it soon becomes clear that director Carl Reiner isn't kidding -- he really thinks this movie is going to save the world.

I was struck by just how good Denver was. It's surprising he didn't get more roles based on his debut performance.
