I really liked this movie as soon as I saw it. Jim Carey is perfect for the character he plays, Bruce Nolan, and the whole film has lots of laughs all the way through it. Morgan Freeman also plays God very well, and I also like the way the story has meaning to it. I think its a great film to have in your DVD collection and its one you will watch over and over, and still laugh every time. Own it!
Whilst Bruce Almighty doesn't hit the heights of Ace Ventura or Liar Liar, the picture maintains a consisent string of laughs and allowed Carrey to tickle are funny bones after the failure of the Grinch.
The story has Carrey as an underappreciated newscaster who can't get the best stories and thus begins a tangle with God. God offers him the chance to run the world better, and as a result Bruce becomes the blesses incarnate.
Jennifer Aniston and Steve Carrell make good support and whilst the film is a bit mawkish come the end, fans of Carrey and comedy should find plenty to laugh at. Worth a watch and if you like it the Play.com price is reasonable.
Here we have Jim Carrey in his mid-career; after the excess of Ace Ventura and before he became a serious, and not bad, actor. There are plenty of good gags here, although it's rather hard to be involved in a story that tries to make out that a guy is a loser because he's a newsreader who doesn't get the best stories. Perhaps if he'd been a toilet cleaner or worked in McDonald's it might have been a little more credible.
