For close to two thousand years, God has been characterized by many Christians as humorless, scary, and distant.
In the last half of the 20th century with the help of Carl Reiner, a friendlier and more approachable Diety emerged in "Oh God" with George Burns as the title character. Suddenly, God had a sense of humor, but most Christians were afraid to laugh. Why should a relationship concerning God get so complicated and mysterious? If we're his sons and daughters, we should be able to talk to him like any father. Three and half stars.
I also saw "Dogma" a couple of years ago and enjoyed that as well. It had an offbeat irreverent spin on angels, God and devils, but the story was interesting and funny in spots.
I never saw Bruce Almighty, but some friends liked it alot. The reviews are below.
