Tom Turner is a con man, defrauding people from their money with a variety of two-bit hustles. One night he makes the mistake of attempting to hustle some undercover cops, and finds himself in court faced with the dilemma of either going to jail or getting a real job. Choosing to stay out of jail, he gets a job at the post office working in their Dead Letter Office helping to sort Dead Letters (i.e. mail which, for whatever reason, can't be delivered). Some of the mail he recieves can't be delivered because it's addressed to God, and he accidentally answers (sending them money in the process). This starts the ball rolling as more of his co-workers get in on the idea of helping people by answering "God" mail. Written by
another time, another place...yet funny all the same...even now...
sorry this may not be for cynics at heart, but if in for a LightHearted less seriousness laugh of it all...non conforming but simulative...
it was quite funny with a long-term feel ideal in a markable way...just stumbling onto this film from a Canadian inside-workers perspective and insiders-production's views, offers insiders laugh and a half, outdated in areas of course, but...
it has splitting laughter parts that can be watched over and over and or feeling down-times brings a simple uplift if one does not come into it with an already harsh-eye...yes, sentimentally-sappish in a sheepish way, hints of gmashall-comedy to the fans and similar details of kinnear humorous-ways of the past. It is what it is and they are who they are...just on screen, for it's environment.
It's a search to stumble upon, as myself, to make this lost past treasure into simplicity, hints and twists on Santa wishes/wishes as Be-wishes in an angelical light-miracle adult-sense of pay it forward ways with fittingly music to round it off...postmarked and mailed...make that emailed :) to scape into chuckles when you need an uplift in a different light, rather non-dark to note. Thumbs up in letters!
