Did You Know?


Tophet does not mean Hell in Hebrew; it is the name of a real place that is no longer in existence. It is said that in Topheth (the more common spelling) the dominant religion demanded human - specifically child - sacrifice, a practice which was singled out as being abhorrent to Judaism's God.

Great Movie, Great Series, How bout another sequel
13 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think this installment of the Oh God series is very good. When Satan said the contract was a trial period, that just shows how Satan likes to lie and manipulate. Even though George Burns is gone, I think they should make a fourth installment to the series and have Bill Cosby play the role of God and the devil (If the devil wants to be in this one)

To explain Bill Cosby in the role, the beginning of the movie could have God saying that this time he has decided to take on a different form, than the one he used in his last three visits to earth, and then the movie picks up from there just like the other ones did.

Since George Burns can't star in another sequel, I think Bill Cosby would be the perfect alternative, as he would give the character a very similar touch.
