No, it's not a Springsteen documentary, it's an enjoyable, if slight, Jim Carrey comedy. Carrey is Bruce Nolan, a TV reporter stuck with the fluff stories and longing to be taken seriously. He gets his chance when God (Freeman) decides to turn over the reins for a day and gives Bruce his divine powers. The comedy set-pieces are well done, and Carrey can do a lot with a little (at least in his comedies), but the overall effect is less laugh-out-loud funny than fans of the earlier Carrey-Shadyac pairings would expect. Aniston's not given much to do, but Carrell and Freeman stand out among the supporting cast.

Bruce Almighty
Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 3.0 4.0

Bruce Almighty has to be one of my favorite Jim Carrey films. Bruce Almighty was made in 2003 and has a running time of 101 minutes. Jim Carrey, Morgan Freeman, and Jennifer Aniston star in this fun filled comedy. I like this movie a lot. It is very unrealistic but it made me laugh. It was a bit out there as well. Still a very good movie non the less. That would be cool to have those powers for a day or so. Bruce Almighty is about a man named Bruce who wants to be taken seriously and be more than normal. He runs into God and is given God's powers for a while. He does many fun things with his powers. He finds he can do a lot with those powers but one thing he can't do is make someone love him. He has to do that on his own. The movie has a lot of fun filled laughs and is pretty entertaining. That would be awesome to live in Bruce's shoes for a day.

Any Jim Carrey movie is hilarious!!! I like Bruce Almighty because he is given the powers of God and can do anything he wants for an entire day! He helps people, changes his car into a sweet one, plays pranks on people, and some other stuff. If I could do that, I would probably have everything that I want that I could think of in one day! Everything would go my way. That could be dangerous... but I wouldn't cause chaos or anything. Well, maybe a little.
