Encyclopedia > Oh, God!

Oh God! is a 1977 comedy film directed by Carl Reiner based on a novel by Avery Corman. It features John Denver and George Burns in his best-known film role, playing God.



"Anybody who could turn Lot's wife into a pillar of salt, incinerate Sodom and Gomorrah and make it rain for forty days and forty nights has got to be a fun guy."


When God appears to an assistant grocery manager, Jerry Landers (Denver), as a good natured old man, the Almighty selects him as his messenger for the modern world. What follows is Landers' life getting turned upside down as theologians try to discredit him. Landers meets with God several other times throughout the course of the story, gaining advice and insight from the Almighty.

A remake is planned for 2005, starring Ellen DeGeneres.
