Oh, God! (1977)

God (George Burns) chooses Jerry Landers (country singer John Denver), a supermarket assistant manager, to spread the gospel. But, of course, nobody believes a word Jerry says.

A very, very funny original, which, together with The Sunshine Boys, revitalised the career of cigar-chomping veteran comedian George Burns.

Skilled comedy director Carl Reiner works wonders with this material, which in other hands could have turned out extremely tasteless. Teri Garr and Ralph Bellamy provide wonderful support, and the whole has a marvellous feel-good quality to it.
