Oh, God-1977- starring George Burns, John Denver, Terri Garr, Mr. Feeney from Boy Meets World
Maltin says- God appears in person of Burns to summon Denver as His messenger, to tell the world that He's alive and well. Film eschews cheap jokes to build a credible story with warm performances and upbeat message. Followed by a pair of sequels. 3 stars.
I say- Holy 1970's Batman! Very sweet, sentimental movie with George Burns at his very best. Although I always thought Morgan Freeman was God.
