BRUCE ALMIGHTY

 

 

Bruce Almighty is a very funny and enjoyable film, and I was surprised how much I laughed throughout the movie.

They concentrated more on the humor and threw in small bits of wisdom, happiness, life--and kept things light and funny without getting heavy-handed into religion.

Despite his great powers of God, it showed that tragic and bad things can happen.

Just a good job all around, I thought. I'm sure you will leave the theater with a smile on your face.

 

I have some good news and some bad news.

The good news is Jim Carrey is back, doing what he does best, comedy and playing God.

The bad news is the preachy tone that takes over the last part of this film.

There's nothing like a heavy-handed message to ruin your laughs. And there are some good laughs-- you've seen them all in the trailers.

Jim, it's great to have you back, but stick to comedy.

Jim Carrey is back in comic form playing a glum-looking TV news reporter. He dreams of becoming an anchorman. He's completely obsessed with nabbing the anchor position away from his co-worker.

There's one hilarious highpoint in this movie, where the star sabotages his rival's on-air performance.

This is well worth the price of admission to see an absolutely hysterical scene.
