Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"With little in the way of story or spectacle to offer nonbelievers, the film itself just preaches to the choir."
‑ Eric Hynes, L.A. Weekly
"While Letters to God is certainly family-friendly, the blandness robs it of whatever emotion or redemption the filmmakers were shooting for."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"As well intentioned and sometimes well acted as this film is, it is not always able to rise above its own earnest agenda in order to tell its story in an absorbing manner."
‑ Carolyn Arends, Christianity Today
"Letters to God is preaching to the choir."
‑ Annlee Ellingson, Moving Pictures Magazine
"This story of a courageous child's battle with cancer would have been so much better if it had been a documentary."
‑ Linda Cook, Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)
"There are so many characters basing their actions on what Jesus would do that Jesus just about deserves a co-screenwriting credit."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"This drama is unabashedly preachy but satisfying nevertheless."
‑ John Hanlon, Big Hollywood
"... worthy intentions are far outstripped by its fumbling amateurishness."
‑ Jim Lane, Sacramento News & Review
"The true story is inspiring but the film gets much too preachy"
‑ Jackie K. Cooper, jackiekcooper.com
"A bighearted, uplifting and captivating drama for all ages. It will inspire you to open your heart compassionately and to find hope, faith and comfort throughout your life's hardships."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
"This faith-based/fact-based inspirational weepie allows no one to escape the saintlike glow of its terminally ill protagonist."
‑ Justin Chang, Variety
"Heavy-handed tearjerker about faith, death, and friendship."
‑ Sandie Angulo Chen, Common Sense Media
"Letters To God keeps letting the story be interrupted by the sponsor, which in this case is Christianity."
‑ Janos Gereben, Entertainment Insiders
"Dear God, make it stop!"
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, E! Online
"There is no complexity to these characters at all and the relentless pitch for prayer as the answer to all lifeā(TM)s problems is laid on like molasses."
‑ Pete Hammond, Boxoffice Magazine
