Frequently Bought Together
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...
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 ShannonSee all Product Description

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.
On screen Carrey puts his all into his acting, he msut be exhausted after filming with the amount of energy he puts into it all. At the same time he makes the character, in this film 'Bruce', come alive and creates a character that we can all recognise and sympathise with as we all have (frequent) bad days. In a way we are laughing with him and not at him as he wreaks havoc playing 'God' and using his powers to his own selfish advantages instead of helping others. Here is the films only real downfall, that it can't seem to make up it's mind whether it's going to be an all out funny film or a film that teaches us an important moral lesson. It continually wavers between the two and hence you never feel completely satisfied that you have received the message the film was trying to convey.
The film really clicks, mainly because Carrey has excellent support from Morgan Freeman as God and Jennifer Anniston as Bruce's girlfriend. The portrayal of God by Morgan Freeman is original and interesting and Anniston once again shows that Friends is not the beginning and end of her acting career.
The film can be summed up in one word, 'hilairious,' and I don't think anyone would be dissappointed upon seeing it. People who have found Carrey's rubber faced acting beginning to grate on their nerves over the past couple of years should still give this film a go as Carrey pulls out all the stops and once again comes good.
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
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.Read more ›
