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)

Critics Consensus: Carrey is hilarious in the slapstick scenes, but Bruce Almighty gets bogged down in treacle.

Happily deranged comedy has typical Carrey humor.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Bruce Almighty is a 2003 Jim Carrey movie concerned with fate, prayer, and spirituality. In spite of these loftier themes, it's still a Jim Carrey comedy, with hammy physical humor, profanity, and sexual humor and content. For example, given God-like power, Carrey's Bruce immediately uses the power to make a woman's dress rise up on the street, then has a monkey come out of the rear end of one of the thugs who had previously beaten him up. A recurring joke in the movie concerns Bruce's dog and his inability to be properly house-trained; as "God," Bruce has his dog use the toilet. All in all, Carrey's humor is a bizarre, incongruous pairing with deeper themes of spirituality.
