Bruce Almighty

Actors: /

Jim Carrey is back and funnier then ever in the hilarious light-romantic comedy, Bruce Almighty. Bruce Nolan (Jim Carrey) is a television reporter in Buffalo, New York and his primary focus is human interest stories. Bruce tells his girlfriend Grace (Jennifer Aniston) that the anchor job at the newsroom is open and he thinks he’s next in line for the promotion. Instead, he learns that the promotion was given to the office “pretty boy,” wrecks his car and is beat up by a gang of thugs. Bruce is right in the middle of telling God to do a better job when he receives a phone call telling him to go to a specific location in the “seedy” part of town. When he arrives at the building, he meets a down-to-earth gentleman who says he is God (Morgan Freeman). God tells Bruce that since he thinks he can do a better job, then He will grant him almighty powers. First, Bruce doesn’t believe him, but after a few tests he finds out it’s real and he sabotages his backstabbing co-workers job, seduces Grace, takes revenge on the gang that beat him up and enhances his own career to the point that they call him, Mr. Exclusive. He also begins hearing the prayers of the world and grants them all. Then he realizes that with great power comes great responsibility. Didn’t I hear that on Spider-man? This is a charming, heart-warming film. It’s the funniest most hysterical comedy of the year. Personally, I think having divine powers would be great. The only thing I would never – almost never – well, probably never do would be seduce Jennifer Aniston if I could. I laughed throughout this movie and I give it a B rating.

This movie has been given a PG-13 rating by the MPAA

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
