Quotes of the Week -- round-up

This week's release of "Conversations with God" inspired several critics, though not perhaps the way it intended:

LA Weekly's Tim Grierson:

Beyond a lack of enthralling characters or convincing plotting, though, what’s most glaringly missing in this self-promotional marketing tool is, of all things, God, who gets only a bit role as Walsch’s muse in a few scenes. He really oughta fire His agent.

St. Paul's Pioneer Press' Chris Hewitt:
"Conversations With God" is not a movie; it's a brand extension.

The Washington Post's Ann Hornaday:
If (director) Simon's desire to feed the better angels of our nature is admirable, it would be nice if he could do it with better movies.
