What Walsch's message ultimately amounts to is for theologians and consumers to decide, but this uninspired presentation certainly drains it of some mystery and risks turning his writings into the ultimate self-help guide.

What's most glaringly missing in this self-promotional marketing tool is, of all things, God, who gets only a bit role as Walsch's muse in a few scenes. He really oughta fire His agent.

Writer Eric DelaBarre and director Stephen Simon deliver Walsch's apotheosis without any trace of irony. But their treatment of his misfortunes has some of the ring of truth, even though the movie lingers far too long over its own epiphanies.

What He does want, according to Walsch, is for us to have jobs we really like, and to make money. Lots of money.

The story of Walsch's travails never strains credulity, though helmer Simon's predilection for spiritual vistas with light breaking through clouds, arrested close-ups and endless long dissolves often skirts kitsch.

Conversations with God. Nice work if you can get it, and you can get it if you try.
