Product Description

From Down Under come a pleasant-enough comedy that strives to take on some heavy topics - most notably the existence (or lack thereof) of God. Scottish comedian/singer Billy Connolly is a lawyer-turned-fisherman who decides to sue God after a bolt of ligh

Amazon.com

The Man Who Sued God defies simple definition, managing to be several types of movie all at the same time. As a theological-romantic-comedy-drama, it's in a somewhat unique category all of its own. Perhaps only Billy Connolly could carry off a central role that combines slapstick with raging anger, puppydog disappointment, and strong language delivered in his distinctive accent. These facets of performance are used and abused in a tale that feels like it really ought to be based on a true story, but isn't.

Connolly's life as a fisherman is sunk by the destruction of his boat by a bolt of lightning. The insurance company won't pay up, because it falls under that age-old excuse of being an "act of God". So Connolly decides to sue the deity. The premise raises issues about how the law and the church have apparently conspired together. But at heart the film is a simple character study, so any pondering on legal or theological implications will have to be done on your own time; the screen is occupied with family issues, underhand dealings, and a maybe-maybe romance with Judy Davis. --Paul Tonks
