Did You Know?

Trivia

The studio initially suggested to the producers that John Denver reprise his role as Jerry Landers from the first film continuing the original's story, but the suggestion was ignored, as producers thought it would be funnier and more original if the sequel contained entirely different characters. With the exception of George Burns in the title role, none of the original film's characters appear in this movie or Oh, God! You Devil (1984). See more »

Goofs

When Tracey and her father are riding to the restaurant in his Jeep, they are not wearing seat belts. This is obvious when Tracey kisses her father on the cheek. In 1980, there were no mandatory seat belt laws. The first mandatory seat belt law was enacted in New York State in 1984. See more »

Quotes

God: [answering Tracy's question about why there is so much suffering in the world] I know this sounds like a cop-out, Tracy, but there's nothing I can do about pain and suffering. It's built into the system.
Tracy Richards: Which You invented.
God: Right. But my problem was I could never figure out how to build anything with just one side to it.
Tracy Richards: One side?
God: You ever see a front without a back?
Tracy Richards: No.
God: A top without a bottom?
Tracy Richards: No.
God: An up without a down?
Tracy Richards: No.

Alternate Versions

At least three scenes appear in the broadcast TV version that do not appear on the DVD release: 1) Tracy buys an ice cream cone from God, who is working as an ice cream vendor in a park. 2) Later in the movie, in the sequence where Tracy is looking for God, she sees an ice cream vendor that she mistakes for God, and the man asks her what flavor she wants. 3) Some dialogue between Tracy and God in which they discuss having a "business lunch". The first scene is referred to by Dr. Newall when he is discussing Tracy with her parents, and then later by Tracy herself at her hearing. The third scene is indirectly referenced by Tracy's father remarking to her that if he were going to "sell the high qualities of a person, he would take that person to lunch." See more »

Weak follow up to a wonderful original
13 January 2002 | by MrJerrySee all my reviews

Oh,God! Book II is more of a bad remake of the original than a sequel to it.It is not all that funny,its plot plays too much

like a rejected situation comedy pilot,and the use of the slogan "Think God" is a different variation on the idea that worked so much better in the original.John Denver had not returned for this movie and that made a BIG difference.George Burns,as

wonderful as he was playing God,does not have the same chemistry with the little girl that he did with John Denver.

I would give this movie a rating of 3 out of 10,but only for

George Burns;the rest of the cast is nothing special.

If you loved the first one,don't bother to see this one.
