Storyline

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>

almost as good as the original
22 April 2010 | by disdressed12See all my reviews

that's more like it.this third film of the series puts a new spin on things.George Burns is back as God,of course,and the Devil.the story here is fresh and original,and there are quite a few laughs to be had.there are also some very touching moments.George Burns is a gas as the Devil,and it sure looks like heed had a ball playing that role.Ted Wass is great as the hapless victim of the Devil.this movie is quite fast paced compared to the previous two,and it has a much slicker polished look to it,but it works in this case.while i didn't quite like it as much as the first one,it comes in a very close second place.for me,Oh, God! You Devil is a 7/10
