Heavens to Betsy


I loved this film.

I found it to be in the tradition of the classic James Stewart film It’s A Wonderful Life, where the lead character gets to see how things would have turned out under different circumstances.

In the Stewart film, a man is shown how different the world would have been if he had never lived. In Heavens to Betsy, an aspiring children’s book author complains to God that He never answers her prayers.

She then finds herself in an alternate reality in which her every prayer has been answered, with results she didn’t expect.

Despite feeling there’s a little overacting at the beginning of the film, it soon settles down into a very funny and thought provoking story.

In searching for this trailer I found there is a sequel.
That’s a film I REALLY want to see.
