Jimmy's Buzz Guide Review:
This comedy is not as good as Carrey's best, but it's surely not his worst. Ironically the best scene in the movie is the final one when Carrey get be almost human. He becomes whimsical, believable and genuinely lovable.

Bruce Almighty
The beginning of the film is spent acquainting us with Bruce's frustrations, letdowns and ego-problem. Bruce takes his insecure rage out on God who decides to teach Bruce a lesson by making him God for a week. From here on in, Carrey seems to snuggle into his role with greater abandon and believability. He's pretty funny, but it's actually Steve Carell as the equally-selfish news anchor Evan Baxter who delivers the films best laughs, when Bruce's newly acquired powers inhibit Baxter's ability to make any sort of verbal sense while broadcasting. It's hysterical. Carrey fans will also appreciate the well-known Carrey throw-away one-liner from the mouth Freeman, "Alrighty Then." The film plays out with an "Oh God" kind of sensibility and there's a cute love story too, with Jennifer Aniston (Friends), who is a combination of beauty, strength, intelligence, vulnerability and a sense of humor in one package. Who could ask for anything more?
