  • Summary: Adapted from the books by Neale Donald Walsch, this film tells the true story of Walsch (Czerny) who, at the lowest point in his life, asks God some very hard questions. The film chronicles the dramatic journey of a down and out man who inadvertently becomes a spiritual messenger and bestselling author. (CWG Films, LLC) Expand

    Beyond a lack of enthralling characters or convincing plotting, though, what's most glaringly missing in this self-promotional marketing tool is, of all things, God, who gets only a bit role as Walsch's muse in a few scenes.

    Mr. Walsch’s books have sold millions of copies, and his devotees may flock to this movie. Other seekers of enlightenment might prefer the 2004 New Age curiosity "What the Bleep Do We Know!?," whose playful sense of scientific inquiry is refreshing by comparison.

    It's an agreeable enough tale right up until God butts in and starts talking; even if you can swallow the premise, it isn't particularly cinematic to watch a guy endlessly scribbling on legal pads.

    Conversations has all the telltale signs of a religious film that keep your basic moviegoer away: stilted dialogue, overwrought music, the subtlety of a daytime soap.

    Corny and harmless, Conversations With God is a humanistic little movie with a real belief in the power of redemption and a positive enough message: “Love is the answer.” Or: “Go to your Godspace.” Whichever speaks more clearly to you.
  6. Despite valiant efforts from Czerny and from the fine stage actress Vilma Silva, who plays one of Walsch's many saviors, the result would qualify as a blandly inspirational amateur hour if the running time weren't closer to two.

    God, if you exist, why do you keep letting morons like Walsch get rich?
