Product Description

Bruce Nolan (Jim Carrey) feels that his life is pointless and, when he curses God after a particularly bad day at work, he suddenly finds himself face-to-face with the Supreme Being (Morgan Freeman). After trying to persuade Bruce that it isn't easy, God gives Bruce the chance to try the job himself and bestows all his Supreme powers to him for 7 days. Well, what can a man do if you have the Almighty's powers? However, after 6 days of fun and mayhem, much to the bemusement of Bruce's wife (Jennifer Aniston), God tells Bruce that he is disappointed and gives him 1 day to improve the world or else the world will remain in the void that Bruce has created...

From Amazon.co.uk

Bestowing Jim Carrey with godlike powers is a ripe recipe for comedy, and Bruce Almighty delivers the laughs that Carrey's mainstream fans prefer. The high-concept premise finds Carrey playing Bruce Nolan, a frustrated Buffalo TV reporter, stuck doing puff-pieces while a lesser colleague (the hilarious Steven Carell) gets the anchor job he covets. Bruce demands an explanation from God, who pays him a visit (in the serene form of Morgan Freeman) and lets Bruce take over while he takes a brief vacation. What does a petty, angry guy do when he's God? That's where Carrey has a field day, reuniting with his Ace Ventura and Liar, Liar director, Tom Shadyac, while Jennifer Aniston gamely keeps pace as Bruce's put-upon fiancée. Carrey's actually funnier before he becomes Him, and the movie delivers a sappy, safely diluted notion of faith that lacks the sincerity of the 1977 hit Oh, God! Still, we can be thankful that Carrey took the high road and left Little Nicky to Adam Sandler. --Jeff Shannon

There is absolutely nothing wrong with the video quality of this blu ray release - sure, it's not the sharpest one out there, but it's not unwatchable because of its quality, and it's way ahead of the DVD version. I was rather put off when I read the reviews about how bad the quality was, but I'm glad I bought the movie anyways. This is a great movie and if you don't already have it (or like me, wants to upgrade from DVD), get it!

Lynn and Chris from Burnley: This film is very funny, Jim Carrey at his best. He has the day from hell and blames God, so gets the chance to be God to see if he can do any better. Of course the novelty of having God's powers soon wears off and he realises how big a job it really is and how people's lives can be changed in a moment. Very funny, but with a serious undertone.

I've always loved the movies Jim has been in as they are always funny due to his great skill for comady & jokes and I think this one is one of his best yet.

Given the job of being god for a short time Bruce decides to make his life good for himself, from changeing his car into a sports car to makeing his job to find storys easyer. But one thing he must not forget is there are others out there who also need help but will he remember that ?

"Parting a soup now thats just a magic trick but a 24 year old single mother who has 2 kids and a low cash income but yet still manages to survive everyday now thats a miricale" - (God) Bruce Almighty

A very funny movie with great jokes and so much fun to watch too.

Fans of Jim Carrey can't go wrong with this fun filled picture that's not without serious undertones as well.

The Premise is flimsy as such, Carrey plays Nolan, a harried and fed up TV reporter who feels that all of his problems are God's fault. Having enough of his whingeing, God (Morgan Freeman) summons Nolan to his "residence" and bestows all his powers to him. This is where the film hits its stride, the makers letting Carrey loose for a number of funny sequences as he plays God to further his own ends.

It goes where you expect it to, and nobody else gets a look in as Carrey does his stuff, but the journey is a most pleasant one. 7/10

I saw this film many times, it is very witty and clever. Once you see this film you will want to watch it again and again, without it losing its humour. The extras aren't great but the film is brilliant and very clever with its humour.

Bruce Almighty is a comedy that was released in 2003 and was directed by Tom Shadyac. The cast comprises of Jim Carrey, Morgan Freeman, Philip Baker Hall, and Jennifer Aniston.

Local TV reporter Bruce Nolan (Carrey) is having a rough time. Nothing seems to be going right for him, and after the worst day of his life, he becomes outraged and starts to blame God for ruining his life. He even stands in the middle of the road and shouts "Smite me oh mighty smighter." Shortly after this, he finds himself face to face with his creator (Freeman), who hasn't liked all of Bruce's complaining, so decides to endow Bruce with all of his powers for one week, to see if Bruce can do a better job than him. Bruce initially doesn't believe it and simply thinks that the man he saw was insane, but soon comes to release that's it true, and sets about to have some fun. But when things start to get serious he is unprepared, and this leads to some strange but funny situations.

The plot to Bruce Almighty is simple, but fun and entertaining. The film is very comical in places, and it's easy to watch. It's also quite sad at times, and has a deeper meaning about the value of life, and how the world does not evolve around one person. We've all had bad days, so I think there is something we can all relate to in the film.

Two of my favourite scenes that come to mind are when some thugs (who had earlier beaten up Bruce) get their comeuppance. And when Bruce sabotages Evan's (a rival reporter) performance on air.

The characters in the film are great, very believable and easy to identify with. The acting from the main cast is fantastic. Jim Carrey as allows is in good form and Morgan Freeman seems really suited to play the somewhat serious role of God.

This neat idea works on many levels and if like me, you haven't always enjoyed Carrey's OTT mugging and frankly annoying persona at times, it just works better here.

We all know the structure to this, where Bruce (Carrey) is given God's powers, by God, a regal white-suited black man, Morgan Freeman, giving the Lord an accessible and friendly, even 'human' persona. Once he has these, Bruce breezily sets about getting what most of us men would be tempted by, bigger breasts for his fiance (Jennifer Aniston), a new stylish wardrobe and many other slightly dubious wishfuls, pushing the boundaries of taste, but, in my view, not over-extending them, the certificate 12 pointing at this.

Revenge to street punks after they laugh and mock his wish for a peaceful world is wreaked in imaginative and witty ways, done with good SFX. Some fairly obvious musical links could mar (Barry White when Bruce pulls the full moon closer, when he intends an ultra-romantic night with Aniston) but generally these are fun and don't outstay their welcome.

However, when Bruce kind of uses his powers for his own uses and gets his old job back and things go swimmingly but as backlashes and repercussions from his spontaneous 'miracles' backfire and he loses the love of his fiance, his powers disappear. The film obviously intends this to have a moral resonance but the light-hearted nature of the comedy obviously dilutes this and some might miss it altogether, whilst the religious will suitably feel that some justice has been done.

It does get rather mushy and a bit sickly as Bruce finds that Grace, his fiance has been praying to the real God (God has an extremely popular and busy email address for prayers that Bruce has access to, another nifty idea!) that her Bruce can find the errors of his ways etc etc. Get over this rather icky patch and you'll bask in the afterglow as the film concludes.
