Oh, God! is a 1977 comedy film, starring John Denver and George Burns. Based on a novel by Avery Corman, the film, whose screenplay was written by Larry Gelbart, and which was directed by Carl Reiner, was released on Friday, October 7, 1977. The story centers upon an unassuming supermarket manager (Denver) who encounters God (Burns), who picks him to spread his message, despite the skepticism of the media, religious authorities, and his own wife (Teri Garr).
The film inspired two sequels, Oh, God! Book II (1980) and Oh, God! You Devil (1984), both of which featured Burns reprising his role, but with no other recurring characters from the original story. There is currently a remake starring Ellen DeGeneres planned, which was confirmed by DeGeneres in a Time magazine interview.
