George Burns is back as God, but oops, here he is as Satan, too. A young rock star is ready to sell his soul to Satan, and Satan is all too happy to oblige. Oops! Seems the fellow was watched over by God as a baby, so now the Almighty and his nemesis have to duke it out over the soul. Written by Steve Derby <sderby@sdeco.com>

Did You Know?


Throughout all three movies in the series, all of the main characters have something in common: a background in music. John Denver was a famous folk and country singer. Louanne got her start with the starring role in a musical theater production of Annie. Ted Wass also began his career with stage musicals. Even George Burns himself got his start as a street performer and eventually vaudeville. See more »

User Reviews

Any film with Mr. Burns is GREAT!
14 April 2006 | by yddsp@aol.comSee all my reviews

George Burns is so great, I believe the older and wiser he got, he just became that much more endearing to the public. Any one of the "Oh God" installments is terrific. When Mr. Burns darns his figurative "robe" (regular guy garb, lol)the only way to describe it is "endearing". I don't care which of the 3 movies you might refer to, but any one of them just makes you feel good and gives you such a warm feeling in your heart. It is only a shame that some people can't just live forever. The previous reviewer's suggestion just might make for an interesting scenario. But seeing as how I don't know if he's even still around or active, Bill Cosby would have made a terrific follow-up to the "God" trilogy. I mean God "is" "all things to all men/women" so hey, who knows and why not? For another interesting twist, Rhea Perlman would have made a great "God" as well. GO God, we "really" need you now!!!!
