"This is a review for the film BRUCE ALMIGHTY (2003), dby Tom Shadyak and released by Universal Studios.
A TV reporter, played by Jim Carrey, frustrated by work and domestic
problems demands an explanation from God and ultimately meets the Man Himself, played by Morgan Freeman. God decides to take a vacation and let Bruce Nolan, the reporter, run things for a while just to see what He's up against. Bruce soon gains a new understanding of life around him and realizes that this world and the people in it all have faults and are not here just to please or even frustrate him...or Him.
Really well done fantasy made with humor and enough realism to be sort of believable. In fact, most of the characters in this dramady are well drawn and well portrayed, even the weasely one is kind of likable in his way. But maybe I was sitting too close to the screen and some of Morgan Freeman's divine intentions were accidentally splashed on me.
Not that I'm complaining, I wouldn't want to repeat Bruce Nolan's mistakes.
I give BRUCE ALMIGHTY Four Stars."

"Bruce Nolan is a local Eyewitness News TV reporter in Buffalo, New York, best known for doing human interest stories--which makes everyone happy but him. Bruce would much rather be replacing the soon-to-retire anchorman. Essentially, Bruce is disconnected with everything in his life and rarely misses an opportunity to complain about it. This movie is rambunctiously funny. Jim Carrey is the man. I can't help but recommend it."
