Storyline

Talking to the camera, Margaret tells us about her friendship with God. "We talk every day," she explains. And at that moment, her phone rings, and it's God on the line. God's gossip is the best, Margaret tells us. Then, we see what happens to her when she and God have a falling out. Can they patch it up? Is she sane? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Will the sequel be titled ALLAH?
1 February 2009 | by (Rosebush) – See all my reviews

Or, to put the question another way, will Rick Warren put out a contract on writer/director John August if he ever learns this short film (11 minutes, 24 seconds, included on the DVD with THE NINES, also written/directed by August) exists? Actually, Judy Blume is more likely to go gunning for August on grounds of plagiarism (the main character of the short, who constantly gossips with God on her clunky white cordless phone, is named Margaret, so you can guess the film's punchline) than any Christian fundamentalist is to issue a fatwa against him for blasphemy. God just takes a gentle ribbing in this movie, and during their brief estrangement when Margaret tries to commit the "unforgivable sin" by downing a pork chop, she ends up spitting it out. It's likely the young pastors of many new age "youth churches" would be able to show GOD at sermon time, and tailor their message to dovetail nicely with the flick's talking points. So, if your cousin or friend is such a shepherd, please share this message with them: GOD exists!
