good for group discussion of higher power
9 July 2007 | by ergoegosumSee all my reviews

The timelessness of Newhart and Klugman hook viewers in right away. We use this movie to encourage the discussion of an higher power in 12 step recovery groups. This film predates "OH God" and "Evan Almighty." It anthropromorphizes the supreme being, not on earth and not in heaven. The movie is respectful of God. We've used it for 20 years and rarely offend a viewer. Some very conservative Christians have been scandalized and accused us of blaspheming. Just recently a gentleman who described himself as a secular Buddist became argumentative during a discussion of the film. It uses less than 30 minutes to make its point. It is sentimental. I tear up and cry when I watch it.
