With little in the way of story or spectacle to offer nonbelievers, the film itself just preaches to the choir.

Letters to God is preaching to the choir.

While Letters to God is certainly family-friendly, the blandness robs it of whatever emotion or redemption the filmmakers were shooting for.
| Original Score: 1.5/4

There is no complexity to these characters at all and the relentless pitch for prayer as the answer to all lifeā(TM)s problems is laid on like molasses.
| Original Score: 1.5/5

A depressingly unemotional affair, with writing and some of the acting so flat that even its emotionally loaded situations can't inspire waterworks.
| Original Score: 1.5/4

... worthy intentions are far outstripped by its fumbling amateurishness.

As well intentioned and sometimes well acted as this film is, it is not always able to rise above its own earnest agenda in order to tell its story in an absorbing manner.

A sometimes moving, sometimes awkward blend of sentimental family drama, cancer awareness and Christian proselytizing.

This story of a courageous child's battle with cancer would have been so much better if it had been a documentary.

Letters to God is certainly watchable and may offer comfort to Christians in the audience. But its appeal will be limited, no matter how professional it looks.

This faith-based/fact-based inspirational weepie allows no one to escape the saintlike glow of its terminally ill protagonist.

There are so many characters basing their actions on what Jesus would do that Jesus just about deserves a co-screenwriting credit.
