      Critics Consensus

      Letters to God's heartwarming real-life story is lost in a heavy-handed drama that's too pat and oppressively earnest to effectively tug the heartstrings. Read critic reviews

        Make no mistake. Just because I am a Christian does not mean I am enthusiastic about Fireproof and other similar features dealing with massively important life topics that all humans should embrace, because they really are gigantic pieces of garbage. That's their evil, and it hurts. I pray to God that a talented filmmaker arises and gets the means to propagate the Word through movies, just like it has happened in all forms of art since ancient times, because it is necessary for modernity! 30/100

        Very "Preachy". Incredibly Hokey. I enjoy a good christian / spiritual movie every now and then, but this one was just a little too over the top for me. Even that sometimes I can overlook...but the acting was just so awful at times, that I found myself cringing.

        I was actually afraid this one might be really bad but it was actually a pure gem. I sobbed at the end. It was just a pure good movie. Parts were a bit cheesy but it was uplifting and encouraging. They may have been a bit too many music montages but it wasn't preachy and it was only lacking in acting talent in a couple minor areas. (It may have been poor scripting and the poor actors could do nothing about it.) Otherwise, what a great movie! I recommend it to anyone who wants to see a movie about a child who changes people's lives for the better.

        i walked into this totally blind, simply waiting for another feature to begin and having no prior knowledge of what to expect (for such is my will and my way!). it's another well-meaning movie-of-the-week, based on a true story (as practically everything is nowadays) about a poor shlump kid dying of cancer and writing the titular "letters to God" to deal. did i say "well-meaning" yet?
