  • Good looking (it was filmed in Winter Garden) but slow and bland, this faith-based tear-jerker is a depressingly unemotional affair, with writing and some of the acting so flat that even its emotionally loaded situations can’t inspire waterworks. show more

  • Letters to God is far too simplistic and pandering to find success outside of the targeted church-going family moviegoers it’s hoping to reach. show more

  • I’ve seen sick kids exploited for all sorts of reasons – usually as easy ploys to manipulate emotions but sometimes to sell things or encourage philanthropic outpourings – but Letters to God takes the cake (make that the holy wafer). show more

    Don't listen to a single review from the "critics" regarding the content, the acting, or anything else for that matter. Nowdays, if a film isn't filled with horror, action, blood, or sex; then it's called "flat" and a smattering of other unflattering words to describe why they think you souldn't even bother to see it. Forget everything they say. This movie is warm, wonderful, filled with heart touching - and yes, at times heart-wrenching - scenes; but isn't that what's called life and therefore constitutes realistic content? I just can't say enough good things about this film, and I'm proud of all the actors that thought it worth their while to make such an awesome movie that stirs the heart. Uplifting and poignant, this film inspires us to be better ourselves and invest in the lives of those around us. A must-see and a good one to own.
