Movie Info

Adapted from the books by Neale Donald Walsch that inspired and changed the lives of millions worldwide, "Conversations With God" tells the true story of Walsch (Henry Czerny) who, at the lowest point in his life, asks God some very hard questions. The answers he gets from God/within become the foundation of an internationally-acclaimed book series that has sold over seven million copies and been translated into 34 languages. The film chronicles the dramatic journey of a down-and-out man who inadvertently becomes a spiritual messenger and bestselling author.

Critic Reviews for Conversations With God

All Critics (45) | Top Critics (22)

A coda after the closing credits, encouraging divine dialogues in general, does little to dispel the hagiographic aftertaste.

April 21, 2007 | Rating: 1.5/5

A terminally muddled movie, uncertain as to whether it's promoting Neale, God, Mammon, Putnam Books or the capitalist exploitation of spiritual need.

November 10, 2006 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Although Stephen Simon's film has the mawkish trappings of an inspirational tale, its unseemly emphasis on monetary matters makes Walsch seem less interested in the spiritual possibilities of his celestial networking skills than their financial benefits.

November 10, 2006 | Rating: 1/4

This film adaptation of Neale Donald Walsch's best-selling book series plays more like an infomercial than a thoughtful exploration of religious issues.

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

November 1, 2006 | Rating: 1/4

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.

Audience Reviews for Conversations With God

This American tale of burgeoning spiritual discovery is meant to be wonderful ... but instead is awkward, stilted and poorly executed (particularly when lingering on the wonderful that's not), thus insuring that I will treat the literature, should I ever run across it, with the same disrespect that this film treated me.

Good New Age message but cheesy execution.
