Critic Reviews for Oh My God
At its best, Oh My God strikes a long-forgotten chord that seems to sing: All you need is love. (And Ringo Starr shows up to underscore the point.)
A mashup of slick tourist photos, a cacophony of contradictory sound bites yielding zero insight. Watching this disorganized essay on organized religion may actually make you stupider.
Some of the talking heads say entertaining or thoughtful things and some of the locations are quite exotic. But does this justify 98 minutes of screen time?
Peter Rodger does a fairly comprehensive job of traversing the globe in 98 minutes, posing the age-old question, "What is God?"
[A] picturesque but shallow inquiry into the meaning of God.
Audience Reviews for Oh My God
An obnoxious documentary as a result of over-editing and inappropriate music that makes it impossible for any person to have an honest moment to answer the question "what is God?" onscreen. Terrible.
This has succeed in gaining the most dubious of titles as the worst film I have seen all year, if not for a decent proportion of my entire life. The narrative presents a puerile, clichéd, flabby, un-insightful and often frankly insulting romp around the world religions. The film is deeply anti-Islamic, playing off the crude notion that somehow Islam is unique in being 'so miss-interoperated'. I am a viewer who delights in discovering about religions, and thoroughly enjoyed the BBC's programme "around the world in 80 faiths". This film entirely fails to emulate any that series' success. Roger is an annoying and childish presence. Stupid techno music destroys much potential poignancy, and the overall cut ends up turning a collection of profound views into utter rubbish. O, and I forgot to mention that the vast majority of the interviewees are men. Misogynist Roger neglects half the world and horribly distorts the other. BAD BAD BAD!
Self-indulgent and vapid. As a film, it was scattered and poorly thought out. As a theological study, it is to religion as a Rock the Vote ad is to politics.
