From Back Cover:

"Two Thumbs Up!"
-Ebert & Roeper

Comic genius Jim Carrey stars with Jennifer Aniston and Morgan Freeman in the entertaining comedy hit of the year that critics are applauding as a "laugh a minute" (Jim Ferguson, FOX-TV). Bruce Nolan (Carrey) is a TV reporter who believes the entire universe is stacked against him. In a life-altering encounter, the Big Buy 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 starring "Jim Carry at his best!" (Leonard Maltin, Hot Ticket)

My Comments:

A little over-the-top fun as a down-on-his-luck guy is endowed with all of God's powers and discovers that being in charge is really hard work. He also is forced to take a long, hard look at his life and realizes that certain changes need to be made. An entertaining movie, for certain, but maybe not quite on par with some of the other comedies in my collection.
