Second "Oh, God!" movie has God appearing before eleven-year-old Tracy Richards to ask for her help to spread his word and influence over the world which she suggests the slogan "Think God". Naturaly, Tracy's divorced parents Paula and Don think Tracy's just crazy and plot to halt her "heaven-sent" mission to spread God's word.Written by
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 »
[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.
Which You invented.
Right. But my problem was I could never figure out how to build anything with just one side to it.
You ever see a front without a back?
A top without a bottom?
An up without a down?

At least three scenes appear in the broadcast TV version that do not appear on the DVD release: 1) Tracy buys an ice cream cone from God, who is working as an ice cream vendor in a park. 2) Later in the movie, in the sequence where Tracy is looking for God, she sees an ice cream vendor that she mistakes for God, and the man asks her what flavor she wants. 3) Some dialogue between Tracy and God in which they discuss having a "business lunch". The first scene is referred to by Dr. Newall when he is discussing Tracy with her parents, and then later by Tracy herself at her hearing. The third scene is indirectly referenced by Tracy's father remarking to her that if he were going to "sell the high qualities of a person, he would take that person to lunch." See more »
Most movies that use the "God" word in them have either been epics like "Moses" or movies where God is not taken serious. In Oh God, Book II George Burns plays the kind of God who comes down to our level to figure out a way to get the human race to take notice of their creator. George Burns character is perfect in the movie as he enlists the assistance of Louanne, a doting, charming young girl who accepts God's appearance on the scene with surprise at first, then with curiosity and finally enthusiasm as he asks her for her assistance in getting more folks to stand up and take notice of "God". The plot is simple as one would expect, but the simplistic faith of Louanne, despite her growing predicaments adds more than cute charm to this fun movie, it stirs the heart and soul of anyone who watches with the same innocent faith of the lead child character of Louanne. The moral is simple, the characters mesh well and the end result is a reminder of what we are all here for.
