    Peter Hartlaub San Francisco Chronicle

    The movie appears to be a contrived, poorly produced attempt to sell more of the author's books. show more

    One of Walsch's precepts is that you should never make a living doing something you hate. If I'd known that, I might not have felt obliged to sit through every excruciating minute of this sanctimonious infomercial. show more

    Michael Phillips Chicago Tribune

    Despite valiant efforts from Czerny and from the fine stage actress Vilma Silva, who plays one of Walsch's many saviors, the result would qualify as a blandly inspirational amateur hour if the running time weren't closer to two. show more

    The movie itself frustrates by guarding the secret of Walsch's newfound spirituality. show more

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    An achingly sincere but often staggeringly inept attempt to introduce Walsch's message to movie audiences. show more

    God, if you exist, why do you keep letting morons like Walsch get rich? show more

    Austin Chronicle

    Corny and harmless, Conversations With God is a humanistic little movie with a real belief in the power of redemption and a positive enough message: “Love is the answer.” Or: “Go to your Godspace.” Whichever speaks more clearly to you. show more

    William Arnold Seattle Post-Intelligencer

    If, like me, you haven't read this book, the movie makes little sense, and has zero inspirational kick. It's just a depressing parable about a fellow who sinks lower and lower in life until he figures out a nebulous new way to sell God to the masses. show more

    L.A. Weekly

    Beyond a lack of enthralling characters or convincing plotting, though, what's most glaringly missing in this self-promotional marketing tool is, of all things, God, who gets only a bit role as Walsch's muse in a few scenes. show more

    Village Voice

    It's an agreeable enough tale right up until God butts in and starts talking; even if you can swallow the premise, it isn't particularly cinematic to watch a guy endlessly scribbling on legal pads. show more
