Adapted from the books by Neale Donald Walsch that inspired and changed the lives of millions worldwide, "Conversations With God" tells the true story of Walsch (Henry Czerny) who, at the lowest point in his life, asks God some very hard questions. The answers he gets from God/within become the foundation of an internationally-acclaimed book series that has sold over seven million copies and been translated into 34 languages. The film chronicles the dramatic journey of a down-and-out man who inadvertently becomes a spiritual messenger and bestselling author.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A coda after the closing credits, encouraging divine dialogues in general, does little to dispel the hagiographic aftertaste."
‑ Andy Webster, New York Times
"This film adaptation of Neale Donald Walsch's best-selling book series plays more like an infomercial than a thoughtful exploration of religious issues."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"The film is professionally mounted, smoothly constructed and carried with ease by Czerny's assured performance."
‑ Jim Lane, Sacramento News & Review
"The cinematography has all the flair and depth of your average episode of "Yes, Dear"; the score is a giggle-inducing juggernaut of obviousness; Eric DelaBarre's script contains virtually no believable dialogue; and Stephen Simons' direction carries the s"
‑ Jeff Giles,
"B movie w/ good heart. Not everyone will buy into the spirituality dogma, I'm not sure I do. But, there is a definite need for all of us to take a deeper look into our souls."
‑ Ross Anthony, Hollywood Report Card
"A terminally muddled movie, uncertain as to whether it's promoting Neale, God, Mammon, Putnam Books or the capitalist exploitation of spiritual need."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"What He does want, according to Walsch, is for us to have jobs we really like, and to make money. Lots of money."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"Resembles a vanity project that looks as though every frame was submitted by producer-director Simon to Mr. Walsch for his approval."
‑ Harvey S. Karten, Compuserve
"...boils down to the assertion that God is that voice in your head, a fairly innocent concept until God starts telling you to do something wrong."
‑ Daniel Eagan, Film Journal International
"A conversation with God should be inspirational and moving, but this conversation loses some of the magnificence and glory when it's channeled through this very ordinary movie."
‑ Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone,
"Although Stephen Simon's film has the mawkish trappings of an inspirational tale, its unseemly emphasis on monetary matters makes Walsch seem less interested in the spiritual possibilities of his celestial networking skills than their financial benefits."
‑ Jason Anderson, Globe and Mail
"The story of Walsch's travails never strains credulity, though helmer Simon's predilection for spiritual vistas with light breaking through clouds, arrested close-ups and endless long dissolves often skirts kitsch."
‑ Ronnie Scheib, Variety
"The facial hair that actor Henry Czerny is forced to wear in Conversations With God is ludicrous, even laughable -- as is much of this film."
‑ Jeff Vice, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"An amateurishly assembled movie-of-the- week-calibre feature with little dramatic energy for the depiction of a life-changing epiphany."
‑ Jim Slotek, Jam! Movies
"Simon has made a garish, lumpy, melodramatic and altogether unconvincing film about a man hitting bottom and then hearing a voice that helps him regain a place in the world (and a pretty rich place, at that)."
‑ Shawn Levy, Oregonian
