James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Below Average "Putting aside the juvenile humor (which is admittedly, albeit unevenly, funny), all that's left is a woefully underwritten motion picture that starts out as a dumb comedy before taking an ill-advised detour into mawkish sentimentality.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Good "There is about Jim Carrey a desperate urgency that can be very funny, as he plunges with manic intensity after his needs and desires.''

USA TODAY  Full Review
Good "The movie is predictable, but this kind of broad comedy is intentionally so. The gags range from silly to clever, but they're almost always well executed.''

TV Guide Online  Full Review
Poor "Unfortunately, such potential is wasted here in what amounts to a sour celebration of mean-spiritedness with an unconvincing moment of redemption tacked onto the end.''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We collected 195 moviegoer opinions and around two-thirds are either "Fantastic" or "Excellent," which is outstanding. Of the remaining one-third, most are "Very Good," which is also quite good. This is an easy movie to highly recommend to all Jim Carry fans. Your probability of enjoying Bruce Almighty is very high.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
Fans of Jim Carrey's silly comedies will be happy to see him back in his element in this film, which is heavy on the broad, sometimes off-color humor. Young adult audiences will definitely enjoy it the most though it should have pretty broad appeal over all ages and demographics.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
It's fun to have God's powers.. .and if you don't believe it, just ask Bruce Nolan (JIM CARREY), because he should know!

Bruce is a local Eyewitness News TV reporter in Buffalo, New York, best known for doing humorous, homespun, human interest stories.. .which make everyone happy but him! Bruce would much rather be replacing the soon-to-retire anchorman, or at the very least, reporting significant news from international hot spots. Essentially, Bruce is discontented with nearly everything in his life, and rarely misses an opportunity to complain about it. He has a loving girlfriend, Grace (JENNIFER ANISTON), who runs a day care center, is happy with her life, and adores Bruce in spite of his negativity. While he dreams of becoming a legend like Walter Cronkite, she tries to help the world one day at a time.

Bruce is handed a good opportunity when he's asked to do a story on the 23rd anniversary of Niagara Falls' famed Maid of the Mist boat, which will air live during sweeps. But the mist hits the fan when it's announced on-air—just before Bruce goes live that the co-anchor position about to be vacated is going to Bruce's superficial and supercilious rival. In front of millions of viewers, Bruce has a major-league, noholds-barred, on-camera meltdown, punctuated by a four-letter word not yet cleared for network television.

One disaster follows another on this, the worst day of Bruce Nolan's life, as he's fired from the station, beaten up by a gang of toughs, who then vandalize his car. Furious, Bruce rails and rages against the Lord for his rotten luck.., which is followed by a curious series of signs and portents most of which Bruce ignores but one of which eventually leads him to a nondescript old building called Omni Presents, Inc.

There, Bruce meets an equally nondescript janitor (MORGAN FREEMAN), who ultimately reveals himself for who He really is.. .yep, he's God!

He's heard Bruce's complaints, and now has an offer for the choleric ex-newscaster. . . His job. By endowing Bruce with all of His powers, God challenges him to take on the big job and see if he can do any better!

And once Bruce convinces himself that he's not dreaming, having a nightmare or a psychotic episode, he proceeds to utilize the infinite powers at his disposal, great and small, for his own amusement, advancement and advantage until finally he stands at a crossroads: whether or not he will become the biggest and most powerful jerk in the universe, or find a little bit of humanity in Bruce Almighty.
