Goofs:
Incorrectly regarded as 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 »
Quotes:
God:[answering Tracy's question about why there is so much suffering in the world] I know this sounds like a cop-out, Tracy, but there's nothing I can do about pain and suffering. It's built into the system.
Tracy Richards:Which You invented.
God:Right. But my problem was I could never figure out how to build anything with just one side to it.
Tracy Richards:One side?
God:You ever see a front without a back?
Tracy Richards:No.
God:A top without a bottom?
Tracy Richards:No.
God:An up without a down?

So at the meeting.To decide what to do with her.God shows everybody to have a little faith.That was a good movie like I said for kids and adults.
