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)

The movie is still fun and funny and I started to enjoy it after I forgot how bad it was looking.
Buy at your own risk. This title needs a major overhaul when it comes to how it looks.
This review does not reflect how good the movie is Just how it looks on Blu-Ray. Movie is still good and one of my Fav Jim Carry films. Wish I only paid $2 for this and not $6.
7-20-17 4th viewing.....go figure. I committed to watching it a bit too soon and had to follow through for reasons that are not to be told. Meanwhile the film yet could wring a hee or a ha out of me with ease. I laughed aloud again. I got stingy eyes again. I don't know why. Gotta be that everyone should see this film or be considered odd at the water fountain in the office where no one wants to know you anymore.
There's a tendency to deliver some heavy lines with almost no build up, to give an appearance of depth here and there, but really it's just a fun romp and a likable hero to travel with until the happily ever after.
Safe background entertainment for when you don't want to take too many chances but want to smile.
I wouldn't waste my money on this if you want a family friendly version. You'd be just as good buying the regular one for a much cheaper price.
After an angry rant at God, he goes to an abandoned building where he meets God. God has filing cabinets of all the things everyone's done wrong (boy, I'd hate to see mine haha) and he gives a few examples of Bruce's failures. Morgan Freeman is perfect as God - he's witty but seeks to teach Bruce a lesson by saying "If you think you can do better than me, go ahead." Comedy ensues as Bruce abuses his power by embarrassing Evan on air and making his sex life better for example. Eventually Bruce gets back to work and covers crazy stories but he finds it means nothing without Grace and that after a few weeks with powers, he feels bombarded with the world's struggles and starts to see that being God isn't easy and that he needed to change so he could be better for himself and others. I love the heart and messages of the movie: being selfish leads to losing things you love, be careful what you wish for, you can't change someone's free will even if you are God, and take a moment to think of the needs/struggles of others and how you can help them instead of yourself. Bruce has a life changing experience that changes him for the better.
This movie is the perfect blend of funny and serious and has so many laugh out loud moments and a phenomenal cast - you won't be disappointed!
Jim Carrey is just the opposite (in real life) of the character Bruce Nolan, so seeing this movie made it all the more funny. While it an older movie, it still is worth watching. Seeing it for the first time, I think it was hilarious. I thought it was much better than most of the movies coming out in 20teens.

Underpinning the wonderful humour and amazing visual comedy is a nice, touching and moral storyline. The film, like Jim Carrey's style, is fast-paced but gently slows during the more touching and thoughtful moments. This film cannot fail to amuse from the outset and by the end would [well it should] have uplifted and touched you on a few levels but do not want to disclose any of the content for fear of spoiling it for any other potential viewers.
This is a role where JC truly excels himself but this review would not be complete without acknowledging the supporting roles portrayed by Morgan Freeman, Jennifer Aniston certainly, in their respective roles, equal to that of Jim Carrey's performance and also, in his own way, Steve Carrell. I guess the moral of the story is that `the grass is not always greener on the other side', and what we consider important, is not necessarily the case but it is a real cool, best of fun, barrel of laughs, roller-coaster of a ride, learning that.
I could write at greater length but will refrain from doing so because, as stated previously, do not want to disclose any content to spoil it for anyone else considering watching. Laugh? It had been quite a while since I had so thoroughly enjoyed such natural, side-splitting, belly-aching, exuberant and frequent outbursts of laughter and mirth such as those experienced while watching `Bruce Almighty' and whenever I watch it again, it never fails to amuse, delight and uplift.
This film most definitely has the `Feel Good Factor', in bundles. . . .
Is this a good film - No, it's good, GOOD! Watch it you'll see. It is indeed, B E A UUUUUTIFUL!
As an afterthought having, now, watched this, maybe, just maybe, I will reconsider my opinion of Jim Carrey, give him the benefit of the doubt and might well watch some of his other movies.
Given the job of being god for a short time Bruce decides to make his life good for himself, from changeing his car into a sports car to makeing his job to find storys easyer. But one thing he must not forget is there are others out there who also need help but will he remember that ?
"Parting a soup now thats just a magic trick but a 24 year old single mother who has 2 kids and a low cash income but yet still manages to survive everyday now thats a miricale" - (God) Bruce Almighty
A very funny movie with great jokes and so much fun to watch too.
To be honest, It doesnt look bad at all, could it look better? sure, but it still looks miles better than the dvd.
Im watching this on a OLED LG and i personaly think it looks fantastic.
