The Man Who Sued God

Year: 2001
Director: Mark Joffee
Cast: Billy Connolly, Judy Davis, Colin Friels, Wendy Hughes, Emily Browning
A bit of a nothing comedy that left little impression despite a good premise and some funny moments.

An eccentric south coast dweller and former lawyer loses his boat in a storm. When the insurance company won't pay up, he travels to Sydney, re-enlists at the bar and goes to argue his case - suing God. If they want to get out of paying, they have to prove God doesn't exist.

Cute enough and interesting as always for the familiar landmarks but a bit below all the leads. The little man takes on the system idea was better done and more in your face in The Castle.
