He's Got the Power.
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).

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

Editor's Note
Jim Carrey returns to his zany, manic roots in this Capraesque comedy from director Tom Shadyac (ACE VENTURA: PET DETECTIVE and LIAR LIAR). Carrey stars as Bruce Nolan, a television reporter in Buffalo, New York who lives a normal life with his sweet girlfriend Grace (Jennifer Aniston). But Bruce isn't satisfied, and after a particularly bad day where everything goes wrong, he blames God. After spewing a tirade of curses God's way, God (Morgan Freeman in a gentlemanly white suit) responds and challenges Bruce to take over and see if he can run things better. Of course, there are some conditions; Bruce can only have the "almighty" powers for 24 hours and only in the Buffalo area. This doesn't stop Bruce, and he responds to his newfound powers with selfish, childlike zeal. Like a kid in a candy store, Bruce sets off making one hysterical, yet disastrous, decision after another. He pulls the moon closer to the earth so he can have a more romantic evening with Grace, unaware that his actions cause a tidal wave in Japan and responds to the prayers of the world with a mass-email "yes" that creates millions of lottery winners, riots, and mayhem. Ultimately, Bruce proves he is only human, and cannot possibly fill God's shoes, although he has a great time trying.

Professional Reviews

New York Times
"...The notion of omnipotence prompts Mr. Carrey to go to new adrenaline-crazed comic extremes....[He] sustains a maniacal energy that explodes off the screen in blinding electrical zaps..." 05/23/2003 p.E13

USA Today
"...The supporting cast, led by Jennifer Aniston and Steven Carrell, offers up some engaging comedy..." 05/23/2003 p.1E

Chicago Sun-Times
"...A charmer....[Aniston] can play comedy, which is not easy, and she can keep up with Carrey while not simply mirroring his zaniness..." 05/23/2003 p.29

Box Office
"...Carrey, for his part is in hilarious form as Bruce..." 07/01/2003 p.44

Total Film
"...It works. High concept, low comedy. What more do you want from a Carrey flick? And there are some neat touches too..." 07/01/2003 p.98

Uncut
"[Carrey] is a comedy giant." 12/01/2003 p.159

San Francisco Examiner 7 of 10
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. - Jeffrey M. Anderson

Chicago Sun-Times 8 of 10
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. - Roger Ebert
