Oh, God! is a hilarious film which benefits from the brilliant teaming of George Burns, as the Almighty in human form, and John Denver, sensational in his screen debut as a supermarket assistant manager who finds himself a suburban Moses.

Carl Reiner’s controlled and easy direction of a superb screenplay and a strong cast makes the Jerry Weintraub production a warm and human comedy.

An Avery Corman novel is the basis for Larry Gelbart’s adaptation which makes its humanistic points while taking gentle pokes at organized Establishment religions, in particular the kind of fund-raising fundamentalism epitomized by Paul Sorvino. Teri Garr is excellent as Denver’s perplexed but loyal wife.
