  1. More benevolent than Bill Maher's snarky flick "Religulous" and a heaven-sent affirmation of our common humanity.
  2. Some of the talking heads say entertaining or thoughtful things and some of the locations are quite exotic. But does this justify 98 minutes of screen time?
  3. 0
    Hearing snoring from behind me at a screening the other day, I looked around and noticed four people had dozed off during the prettily photographed, boring vanity project that is Oh My God?

    The results are often tasteless moments, like Hugh Jackman cackling over footage of an Australian aboriginal ritual scored to techno.
  5. The answers he strings together are babble in this superficial vanity documentary. Nice shots of awesome, God-approved scenery, though.
  6. Filmmaker Peter Rodger does a fairly comprehensive job of traversing the globe in 98 minutes, posing the age-old question, "What is God?"

    Compacts nearly three years' worth of globe-trotting interviews into an often visually vibrant but rhetorically muddled package. So intent on giving (almost) every perspective a fair shake that it winds up saying little of consequence.

    The drubbing score leaves one nearly insensate to the fact that Rodgers has nothing original or even interesting to say about his subject, flattening fine points of scripture to recommend interfaith group hugs.
  9. The film, which Mr. Rodger directed, wrote, produced and photographed on location in nearly two dozen countries, is the documentary equivalent of a spiritually angled coffee-table book of world travels

    30? Really? This is a great documentary, funny, with some problems, but is funny, the celebrities that appear in this film are incredible, have much things to say, wow, I love this documentary is fantastic. Full Review »

    Se trata de un elemental filme documental que (dizque) trata de responder a la pregunta "¿Qué es Dios?" entrevistando a filósofos, artistas, sacerdotes, creyentes, ateos y celebridades (¡Ringo Starr!). Algunas secuencias son, en efecto, muy atractivas visualmente hablando pero, en conjunto, la película es una plasta. Eso sí, a mi me hizo pensar en Dios: le recé para que la cinta ya se acabara.
