Critic Reviews of "Oh God!"Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
The result plays like an over-extended version of the Reiner/Mel Brooks 2000-Year-Old Man sketches.New York TimesMay 09, 2005
An uneasy amalgam or inconsistent attitudes, without enough humor or zaniness to divert attention from its questionable premise.Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 23, 2004
Carl Reiner's Oh, God! is a treasure of a movie: A sly, civilized, quietly funny speculation on what might happen if God endeavored to present himself in the flesh yet once again to forgetful Man.Chicago ReaderJanuary 01, 2000
George Burns seems to be warming up for a good Second City sketch on God's return to earth as a rumpled vaudevillian, but it soon becomes clear that director Carl Reiner isn't kidding -- he really thinks this movie is going to save the world.Common Sense MediaFebruary 02, 2016
Warm-hearted '70s comic fantasy has positive messages.TV GuideMarch 19, 2008
Reiner does one of his best directing jobs and never resorts to some of the silliness he's demonstrated in other films. Denver is very affable and could have had a good movie career given the right material.Video-Reviewmaster.comAugust 01, 2005
Burns is the Lord, Denver is a store clerk. Yet it all works, thank God.MovieholeApril 25, 2005
Comedy gold....Burns at his best!Spirituality and PracticeMay 23, 2003
This wonderful comedy salutes human responsibility for making the world a better place and takes justifiable pot-shots at holier-than-thou hotshots.Flipside Movie EmporiumOctober 03, 2002
Somewhere deep down, I think we all hope that God turns out to be like George Burns.Movie MetropolisJuly 18, 2002
Burns is everything we could hope for in a benevolent God--a kindly, reassuring voice; a sympathetic smile; a modest, unassuming manner; everyone's favorite uncle.
