In the end, Sweeney's skills as a writer and performer trump her lack of directing oomph.

Audience Reviews for Letting Go of God

She's a genius, it's like hearing everything I've known but have never been able to put into words told back to me with more precision and irresistible humor than I thought possible. It's a profoundly personal experience.

September Observer

Excellent! My wife likewise was raised Catholic and is now atheist, and reports that this monologue hits the nail on the head! Dealing with parents, dealing with others, dealing with your own feelings of guilt and separation anxiety, and Sweeney brings a wonderful sense of humor to it all.

Kirby Palm

Yep. Here ya go. If you ever identified with Brian on "The Family Guy", this one shouldn't be missed. I watched it today, and, while I'm not a huge reader, I do love to think. And I have a love affair with things that make sense. This movie made so much sense to me. It's on one of the premium cable channels this month. Watch it, and please, try to have an open mind.
