Garry Marshall's fast-paced, Capra-esque comedy probably out-Capras Capra himself in sentimentality, but the terrific cast makes for a rarity: a feel good-comedy that's actually very funny.

It unfortunately has an unfinished quality, and plays very much like a good first draft for a much better movie than the one on view.
April 9, 2005
Horrendously unfunny.
April 3, 2005
Annoyingly unfocused comedy flick with nary a laugh to be found.
| Original Score: 1/5

Cute concept, middling execution.

This shows Greg Kinnear at his most forced. Director Garry Marshall should've given Kinnear and the other actors more depth before taking it to the silver screen.
| Original Score: 2/5
August 30, 2003
Cutesy comedy that makes good use of the Kinnear charm.

Ultimately what we have here is further evidence of just how difficult it is to make a film that works.

'Dear God' commits the worst sin of all for a comedy -- it evokes very few laughs.
October 15, 2002
The movie is as well-intentioned as a Christmas card, but as a work of narrative art, it's a train wreck.

In its own light-hearted way makes a good case for the spiritual benefits of service.
June 5, 2002
Well-intentioned and generally likable, it's nevertheless disappointing to think of the film Dear God might have been as compared with the fluffy final edit.

The title should be spoken with a grave shake of the head.

A goofy, goodwill gesture toward the U.S. Postal Service, it's never funny and moves slower than an unaddressed letter without postage.
February 14, 2001
As trite as the framework is, Dear God might have been a charming holiday film, if only its miracles weren't so trite.

A sickeningly bad pastiche of much better pictures.

January 1, 2000
It is a limp, lifeless story starring Greg Kinnear as a con man who becomes a do-gooder, and one of its many problems is that he was a lot more entertaining as a con man.

God, this thing is a total piece of junk. Even I'm embarrassed for You, and I'm an atheist.
