Praise the Lord

by ZapVegas on 8/10/2007

Jim Carrey turns in my favorite performance of his. Morgan Freeman is amazing as "God" and Jennifer Aniston is a cute distraction. Nice movie with some VERY funny moments.

YESNO

Product Overview

Comic genius Jim Carrey stars with Jennifer Aniston and Morgan Freeman in the funniest, most outrageously entertaining comedy hit of the year that critics are applauding as "a laugh a minute" (Jim Ferguson, FOX-TV). Bruce Nolan (Carrey) is a discontented TV reporter who believes the entire universe is stacked against him. In a life-altering encounter, the Big Guy Upstairs (Freeman) endows Bruce with all of His divine powers and challenges Bruce to take on the big job to see if he can do it any better. Bruce Almighty is the wildly funny comedy featuring "Jim Carrey at his best!" (Leonard Maltin, Hot Ticket).

ReviewSource San Francisco Examiner
Review His humor comes from somewhere dark, just like the greatest of all screen comics -- going all the way back to W.C. Fields and the Marx Brothers. And that's where the conundrum comes in. If Carrey embraces his darkness, audiences bolt. And if he veers over to the other side, toward sappy nobility, audiences still bolt. So he's stuck in the middle doing brain-dead Ace Ventura films with the so-called director Tom Shadyac.

Review Freeman plays God with a quality of warm detachment that is just about right, I think. You get the feeling that even while he's giving Bruce the free ride, he has a hand on the wheel, like a drivers' training instructor. Aniston, as a sweet kindergarten teacher and fiancee, shows again (after "The Good Girl") that she really will have a movie career, despite the small-minded cavils of those who think she should have stayed on television. She can play comedy, which is not easy, and she can keep up with Carrey while not simply mirroring his zaniness; that's one of those gifts like being able to sing one song while typing the words to another.

Quotes
Ross Anthony, Hollywood Report Card ...it's Steve Carell who garnishes the film's belly laughs.
Stephen Holden, The New York Times Rambunctiously funny.
Tom Long, Detroit News Yep, this is the Carrey America loves--off-the-wall, over-the-top, elastic, spastic and fantastic.
