"A little comedic gem. This third installment of the "Oh,God!" series stands on it's own. Several scenes of hilarity are woven with thought provoking ideals. George Burns is in fine form in both roles. His Harry O. Tophet is a scream. Another fine turn by the underrated Ted Wass. An actor who has the knack for comedy, slapstick, and drama. This film is actually better than the mixed reveiws that it received. A personal favorite."
George Burns Rulz !!!!!!!!

"George is so cool in this flick some people may get the wrong idea about the title but in the end you realize that God can take the devil down a peg or two anytime he gets ready !!!!!!!"

"Ok, I like George Burns's first "Oh God" film. "Oh God Two" was lumpy weak sequel. I expected George Burns playing both God and the Devil would be interesating...It's Hell to swallow!
A young boy's father is asked GOD to watch over him...God says I hope he (the boy) isn't another disappointment (Foreshadowing what going to happen to the max)
The boy grows up into Ted Wass character, Billy Shelton-a Struggling musician who career is floundering and says "I would sell my very soul to the devil to make it". (Can you say WRONG ANSWER!)
He is visited by Harry Tophet (the devil) and made an offer he can't refuse. He signed the satin pact. Shelton takes over Billy Wayne, a rock star the devil recently just took his soul
Shelton sees his wife with another man. He finds out she is pregnant and wants to get out of the contract. The Devil says NO (cmon there would be no movie is he said yes). So Shelton keeps search for GOD
A holy man says GOD is in the desert. Where else would a rock star go to the desert...Las Vegas. This is where GOD and the Devil having a showdown playing poker. A rotoscoping nightmare since one or the other Burns look like he's taped.
I would have wanted more interplay between God and the Devil(THE SHOWDOWN WAS TOO SHORT)instead of a FAUST-like tale.It is a cute film, like too much sweet candy after Halloween
If you are a George Burns fan, its OKAY--I'd rather watch "Going in Style" with Burns and Art Carney
