Bruce Nolan toils as a 'human interest' television reporter in Buffalo, N.Y., but despite his high ratings and the love of his beautiful girlfriend, Bruce remains unfulfilled. At the end of the worst day in his life, he angrily ridicules God—and the Almighty responds, endowing Bruce with all of His divine powers.

best movie i've ever seen.

When a movie has you begging for it to end not even half way through it's pure crap. We've all seen this movie and this characters millions of times, nothing new in it. Don't waste your time.

This is a small, humorous movie in some ways, but it has a huge heart. What a nice experience.

Bruce AlmightyFinally, Jim gets what he deserves; enough range for him to flex and flaunt his comic skills but unfortunately Bruce Almighty only feeds on its lead character.

In one of Jim Carrey's best films he plays Bruce Nolan, a news reporter that nurses hopes of one day becoming an anchor, but is seen as too comedic by his fellow workers. Kind of like Carrey probably nursed hopes of one day becoming a real actor.In all seriousness though, this is a good comedy. It mixes Carrey's usual facial antics and high energy with good special effects and gags that actually make sense within the story. The story of course going that this everyday guy gets powers from God (Morgan Freeman) himself. He promptly uses these powers to improve his own life, ruin the career of his competitor and make his girlfriend's breasts bigger. Because that's what we all would do, whether we admit it or not.And therein lies the beauty of this film. It actually has a good message to deliver. And this all culminates in Morgan Freeman as The Big Kahuna himself. Fantastic, heartfelt role and a message that goes unsaid too often. Because it isn't enough that you wish for something to happen. You need to go out and be part of the solution. Don't just wish for a miracle, be the miracle.Is this film a bit clunky? Yeah. Is it immature? Oh yes. But it's also funny, surprisingly thoughtful and has its heart in the right place. Can you really ask for more?

I suppose what this film is saying is that given the opportunity Bruce is given, the natural thing to do is to act entirely selfishly, feathering your own nest, and being crass and insensitive. He uses what he has been given to be self indulgent and selfish. I guess there is some religious message in all this, since God actually appears (the soft spoken Morgen Freeman). I guess because Jim Carrey's persona is at the center, we don't get took see God pick a person who has lapsed into despair over the state of the world, the treatment of women, the abuse of children. Yes, i know it's a comedy, but it has that heavy handed stuff in it that says, "There is only one way." Of course, Carrey will eventually have too much of a good thing and abuse his powers because he never had any character to begin with. He learns at the end, but only after he has a bit of guilt for causing death and destruction. Mostly, he is clueless. By the way, is Morgen Freeman an American Christian God or does he represent the world in general? Just asking.

I LOVE THIS MOVIE. I just recently watched this and it still makes me laugh and Jim Carrey as always does his very best. The film from start to finish was amazing as usual, the effects were awesome and the music to the film fit perfectly with what was going on and of course Morgan Freeman was amazing as god. One of my favourite characters has to be of course Bruce, he is funny and also he is such a genuine character. My favourite moment has to be when Bruce is walking along testing out god's powers and the song 'I Got The Power' comes on, funniest, moment ever in the film. If you like Jim Carrey or Morgan Freeman then this is the film just for you. "He saw and it was good'.
