Editorial Reviews

Saturday Night Live's Julia Sweeney has teamed with producer Quentin Tarantino (Jackie Brown, Pulp Fiction) to create this uplifting motion picture presentation of Julia's hilarious stand-up performance, God Said "Ha!" Recently single, Julia was looking forward to the future in a cozy new bachelorette home. But then, her idyllic life was instantly changed when her brother...along with their parents...moved into her tiny place for a year she'll never forget! Acclaimed by critics and honored as Best Picture at the Seattle International Film Festival-Julia's infectious sense of humor allows us to find moments of extreme hilarity in some of life's most challenging days!

5.0 out of 5 stars Therapeutic and Funny Too... May 6, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
There's two types of humor, in my opinion. There's surface humor: that's slapstick, the Farrely brothers, Jim Carrey (most of the time), Airplane!, and Carrottop. Then there's deeper humor, that can be funny on the surface, but has something deeper beneath it: The Cohen Brothers, Being John Malkovich, Catch-22, George Carlin...you get the idea.
Julia Sweeny's one-woman-show-turned-movie (produced by Quentin Tarantino) is that second type of humor; deeper, and funny in a way that not only makes you smile on the outside but (pardon the cheesiness) also smile on the inside. This show/movie, "God Said Ha!", is basically the story of how her brother got cancer (lymphoma) and moved in with her, so she could take care of him. Pretty soon after, their parents move in with them, and Julia Sweeny does a great job of immitating her mother in such a way that we laugh, but also recognize the truth in her recreation.
Some of what Julia discusses is terribly upsetting; like when her brother has to have a spiget-like thing installed in his head so they can get the medicine directly into his cranium. But her brother retains his humor throughout this terrible experience, and after the doctor tells him that everyone who gets the-spiget thing in their head really loves it, he goes around the house saying, "I absolutely LOVE my (i forget what its called!)." (It's a lot of funnier when Julia tells it).
Recently, my mom's really good friend Stephanie had to have a tumor the size of a honeydew removed. I told my mom to tell Stephanie to rent this movie, because it's a lesson in how to use humor to get through life's most awful situations. So if you have a few dollars to spare, or just need some cheering up, make "God Said Ha!" your next movie purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars God Said Ha! March 18, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
As an Oncology Nurse I was surprised to find myself laughing out loud to the point of tears. Having been in the places where Ms. Sweeney explores her experiences, she gave me a whole new appreciation for what we expect our clients to do. Everything she said happens. The world from the practitioner is one way, but it's seeing the story through both her brothers and then Ms. Sweeney's own journey which made me realize some of our shortcomings and how we also excel. I love working in Oncology ... that sounds strange I'm sure, especially when you hear that I'm a pediatric specialist. Hearing Ms. Sweeney's story put back my belief in all that we do to help and what we expect our people to live through. Yes, it's mostly a hellish ride, but there are those moments when laughter is just the only response. I admire Ms. Sweeney's courage, I love her humour, and appreciate that she was able to take such serious events and share them in her own style so that we, the audience can be with her through this rollercoaster ride of emotions. This movie is for the cancer survivor, the lovers of those who have fought the battle, and those friends who never knew what to say when all you had to do was simply be there. ENJOY!

I wandered into this movie in Los Angeles in February and found myself riveted and thrilled by this woman's honesty and humor. I have never written one of these before, and feel ridiculous, but, you MUST see this performance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Triumphant One Woman Show June 27, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Julia Sweeney's battle with her brother's cancer, her mom and dad moving in, etc. make for a wonderful performance piece that earns its laughs and tears. By the time it was over (way too soon), I felt like I'd spent a lifetime with these people.

5.0 out of 5 stars An inspiring story of life's mysterious ways August 25, 1997
Format:Hardcover
Julia Sweeney uses a breezy style--similar to a friend relating life stories over a cup of tea--to share her deepest sadness and remarkable courage in this emotional roller-coaster of a book. If you've ever felt alone when your world is crashing down, pick up this book and get inspired. I highly recommend this title
