Many people write to God. Somebody is answering. Greg Kinnear stars in this spirit-lifter about a money-scamming con artist who goes from no-good to doing good. That con artist is Tom Turner (Kinnear), whose transformation begins when a judge gives him a choice of work or prison. Tom chooses work, of course, and is assigned to a post office's Dead Letter Office. There, he begins a con of divine proportions. By responding to letters addressed to God with a few "miracles," he 's in the right place to pocket any offerings mailed back. But an unexpected miracle takes place when the city starts cheering on Tom and his loony "God Squad" (featuring Tim Conway and Laurie Metcalf).
