Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Oh, God! is a comic fantasy in which the Almighty, disappointed with the way things are going, travels to Earth in the guise of a human to deliver his most important messages. He chooses a nonbeliever, an ordinary man to carry those precepts to the world. The teachings are "faith-based," not preaching any particular belief system, but hoping to inspire responsibility, compassion, and care for the earth and one another. The movie asserts only that there is one Creator (in this case, a whimsical and funny one) and that it's entirely up to the world's inhabitants to take advantage of everything he has put in place for them. Fine for kids and families who can accept this lighthearted approach to faith and who will appreciate the honesty and value of the ideas it presents. Profanity includes "hell," "crapshoot," "humping the checkout girls." There's some minor sexual content (skimpy nightgown, man getting out of shower naked from the waist up).
- Sexual Content
- Married couple cuddles in bed. Comic scene shows hero passing a couple embracing in a supermarket; her skirt is up. Female lead appears in skimpy clothing (babydoll PJs, a slip). Man is shown getting out of the shower, naked from waist up until he puts a towel on, and is embarrassed by his nakedness. A mention of menopause.
- Security guards grab hero in a church service and carry him out of the room.
- "Hell," "crapshoot," "humping the checkout girls."
- Social Behavior
- Simple messages work for any belief system: The world has everything in it to provide full, good lives for everyone; it's up to the people who live there to make it work. And, if help is needed, they must turn to each other. Key decisions must be made: Choose cherishing and nurturing the planet and each other instead of killing and ruining the earth.
