Dear God (1996)

DEAR GOD, do I have the strength to write this review?  The movie 
is so bad that I question my ability to articulate its awfulness.  
Do I have the language to describe how director Garry Marshall 
(PRETTY WOMAN) tries to take the film in ten different directions 
at once?  Or how he turns the tone on a dime, from serious to silly 
to satire to slapstick?  Do I praise Greg Kinnear (SABRINA), who 
has such screen charisma as the con man turned Good Samaritan that 
he's sure to work in this town again.  Do I talk about Tim Conway, 
whose burned-out letter carrier is the postal comedy's sole saving 
grace?  DEAR GOD, it's almost unwatchable.  (Rated "PG"/~100 min.) 

Grade: D
