In this box office comedy smash, God (played by the one and only George Burns) comes to Earth to spread the Good Word, but has a hard time convincing his chosen messenger, John Denver, an assistant manager of a supermarket, who He really is. Denver must in turn prove it to his disbelieving family as well as the rest of the world in this wonderfully delightful family classic. Co-starring Academy Award-nominees Teri Garr ("Tootsie," "Young Frankenstein") and Ralph Bellamy ("War & Remembrance"), Paul Sorvino ("GoodFellas"), Donald Pleasance ("Halloween" series) and songstress Dinah Shore. An Oscar nominee for the screenplay by Larry Gelbart ("Tootsie"), directed by Carl Reiner ("The Man with Two Brains").
