Tyler Doherty is an extraordinary eight-year-old boy armed with strong faith and courage as he faces his daily battle against cancer. Surrounded by a loving family and community, Tyler's prayers take the form of letters he sends to his ultimate pen pal, God, on a daily basis. These letters find their way into the hands of Tyler's postman, Brady, who is at a crossroads in his life, searching of Tyler's shining spirit, bravery and grace. Inspired by a true story, Letters to God delivers a message of home, faith and courage that others can apply to their own personal struggle regardless of what they may face in their everyday lives.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: There are so many characters basing their actions on what Jesus would do that Jesus just about deserves a co-screenwriting credit.
Rotten: This faith-based/fact-based inspirational weepie allows no one to escape the saintlike glow of its terminally ill protagonist.
Rotten: While Letters to God is certainly family-friendly, the blandness robs it of whatever emotion or redemption the filmmakers were shooting for.
Rotten: With little in the way of story or spectacle to offer nonbelievers, the film itself just preaches to the choir.
Rotten Tomatoes should learn by now
I think it is about time that Rotten Tomatoes learns how to give some real ratings, because Jesus is the most significant figure in not only influencing, but making the America that they so frequently take for granted available. Note how their rating totally failed compared to the Average Customer Rating. People want morally based movies now-a-days, and this is what they have asked for.
YOU WILL CRY!!!
I rented this movie and watched it with my family, everyone cried, even my brother who is a 6'4 football player. Great story. I will buy this movie and watch it over and over again.
I was almost discouraged by the low rating .... one of the best movies ever. You will laugh, cry and be inspired !!!!
