Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Julia Sweeney delivers an extended monologue that's so exquisitely written and so emotionally touching that she manages the near-impossible task of captivating the audience for 85 minutes with quite a demanding material."
‑ Emanuel Levy, Variety
"Sweeney proves that humor can be a lifesaver in the midst of pain,suffering and setbacks."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"Were Julia Sweeney not such a gifted comedienne, listening to her uncompromising account of her brother Michael's struggle with lymphatic cancer would be unbearable."
‑ David N. Butterworth, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"you will likely find this picture as therapeutic as a support group, should you or a family member be stricken with a cancer."
‑ Ross Anthony, Hollywood Report Card
"Poignant--but never depressing, thanks to Sweeney's sharp--and, it appears, therapeutic--wit."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"It is an odd mixture of the mundane, the deeply moving, the absurd and the tragic, all told with equal enthusiasm."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"a wise, funny, immensely entertaining hour and a half spent with a woman of spirit and verve"
‑ Arthur Lazere, culturevulture.net
"Sweeny's monologue is truthful and funny in a loose conversational way that draws you in."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Julia Sweeney fashions a small, poignant, survivalist gem that's simple in concept, entertaining in delivery, and big in heart."
‑ Elias Savada, Nitrate Online
"There is a horselaugh implied in the title of Julia Sweeney's affecting one-woman show, God Said 'Ha!', and it's on the lady herself."
‑ Harry Haun, Film Journal International
