Movie Info

In the third and final film in the Oh, God! franchise, Bobby Shelton (Ted Wass) is a struggling musician who can't get a break, which bothers him all the more now that his wife, Wendy (Roxanne Hart), is about to have a baby. Desperate and depressed, Bobby announces that he'd sell his soul to get ahead. Suddenly, Harry O. Tophat (George Burns), Satan's earthly representative, appears and offers Bobby a deal -- seven years of unprecentented fame and fortune in exchange for his soul. Bobby cynically accepts and discovers that the devil is true to his word, but he finds that the trappings of fame and wealth are empty pleasures, and he loses Wendy along the way. When Bobby declares that he's made a horrible mistake, God (Burns), who has been watching over Bobby, offers to help get his soul back as the devil offers Bobby's place in eternity as the prize in a poker game.more

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (3)

Unhappily, the story didn't need to get this involved and it winds up constantly trying to pull the picture apart, working against the comedy.

The material is extremely slight, but at least it's benign.

It's a hoary story, but Burns lends a new twist with his slick portrayal.

George Burns stars in both title roles, primarily the second one. As Satan, he tempts a young musician with stardom and luxury. Burns's timing is often impeccable and he can make silly lines such as his hotel room exit, "If you want anything I'm in 666,"

The worst of the series, but Burns still entertains.

Audience Reviews for Oh, God! You Devil


Another bad sequel from the 80s, this one is no where near as good as the first one. I'd say just see the first one and forget about this movie.

A favorite.

This is a poor sequel to the original, Oh God! from the seventies. The story is too familiar and predictable that this movie isn't even worth seeing. The middle of the movie was especially boring. The beginning is a bit funny, and the ending was alright, but overall it's not a great movie, the main character isn't even very likable. Burns is "cute" as God, but other than him the cast isn't good. I wouldn't recommend seeing this movie, just watch the first one.
