George Burns is wonderful in both roles!
22 October 2003 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

This was the second sequel to "Oh God" (they had planned a third, but it never was made). Once again, George Burns plays the Almighty but he also plays a dual role as the Devil himself. What an original idea! I know that people who loved George couldn't picture him playing a role of evil, but he does it very well. The plot sort of reminds me of The Devil And Daniel Webster with Ted Wass's character as a sort of modern day Jabez Stone. A rock star who is willing to sell his soul for sucess. There is a wonderful bit of technology when we see the two "Georges" fighting for this man's soul in the end. We can actually see George walking behind "himself" as God! Movie technology has come such a long way. Once again, George makes movie magic and makes you believe. He is just so wonderful as God that I can't think of any other actor who could have done it as well as he (do you realize that in the original Oh God! they wanted Mel Brooks to do it?!). Jason Wingreen is a well-respected character actor (he was on All In The Family and Archie Bunker's place). He has a small role in the film and I wrote to him several years ago and asked him what it was like working with George Burns. He wrote me back and said that the few days he worked with George were among the happiest of his life. He said he was wonderful and so good to the cast and crew and kept them laughing with wonderful stories about his life. We as a society need more films like this with a positive message about God. We need it now more then ever. The singer in this film wanted fame and glory and yet in the end he found happiness in a simple life with his loving wife and child. What a wonderful message! This is a great film and George Burns is what makes it that way. God bless you Mister Burns, I hope you and Gracie are having a wonderful time in Heaven. We still miss you here on earth and need you now more then ever.
