Trivia

The studio initially suggested to the producers that John Denver reprise his role as Jerry Landers from the first film continuing the original's story, but the suggestion was ignored as producers thought it would be funnier and more original if the sequel contained entirely different characters. With the exception of George Burns in the title role none of the original film's characters appear in this film or the third film in the series "Oh God! You Devil" (1984). See more »

Goofs

When Tracey and her father are riding to the restaurant in his Jeep, they are not wearing seat belts. This is obvious when Tracey kisses her father on the cheek. In 1980, there were no mandatory seat belt laws. The first mandatory seat belt law was enacted in New York State in 1984. See more »

The right slogan and a child shall lead them
20 February 2017 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Of the creative people who brought us Oh God only George Burns returns for the sequel. Larry Gelbart's adopted script which got an Oscar nominations was a very profound statement on the human condition. This one is a nice PG rated kids film with the Deity himself now using a little girl played by Louanne to spread His word with the good advertising training her father David Birney has given her.

Starting with her schoolmates she gets them to graffiti the world with 'Think God' and the simple idea spreads. The best ideas are often the most simple ones.

Burns puts Louanne in some heavy company with people like Socrates, Gandhi, Lincoln and Martin Luther King. Her sanity is questioned and like John Denver in the original who went before a select group of theologians Louanne's very future at stake.

This is a pleasant remake of a real classic. Burns is as droll as ever. Suzanne Pleshette is fine as Louanne's mother. But it's just a pale imitation of the first.
