Pretty lame. I don't like Jim Carrey much to begin with, though. I laughed a couple of times, mostly at Dan Hedaya. And Morgan Freeman is always a pleasure to watch, but not enough to save this mediocre crap.

So essentially, we have Jim Carrey playing typical Jim Carrey and Jennifer Aniston playing romantically frustrated Rachel Greene (a la Friends). Pretty funny at times- especially considering this is the first widely known movie where we get funnyman Steve Carell as a central character- but otherwise, it's predictable. Morgan Freeman as God may well be the only reason to watch this one.

Morgan Freeman is god. Coincidentally, he plays god in this film. Besides him, it's really just another mediocre Jim Carrey comedy that brings nothing new to the table.

I'm glad I finally got to see this movie. Jim Carrey did a great job at his short stint of being Bruce Almighty. Morgan Freeman did a fantastic job as God. That silky smooth voice could only come from the heavenly father. Some of the jokes are a little goofy (It's a Jim Carrey movie after all) but the scenes that worked, really worked and I laughed really hard during those scenes. The Steve Carell scene with the babbling had me in tears it was so funny. I also liked the moral of the story.

This should be marked as "Comedy" instead of "Fantasy". Jim playing God is one of the funniest things you can imagine. The story is not that incredible, but it's really, REALLY fun. Morgan Freeman, Jennifer Aniston and Steve Carell are fantastic here too. Worth it!

Surprisingly unfunny, considering the possibilities in the premise. Most of those points are for the scene where Bruce was making Evan wig out on air, because that almost made me pee on myself I was laughing so hard. Unfortunately, this spends waaay too much time being respectful and didactic, when it would have been more entertaining if he'd just gone power-mad for the full runtime.

Some decent laughs throughout this comedy. I'll be honest I was hoping for a lot more. I thought Jim Carrey and Morgan Freeman did great jobs with their characters but there just wasn't enough laughs to make this memorable and there wasn't enough deep philosophy to make it really memorable either. It's alright but nothing great.

Jim Carrey and Morgan Freeman are both likable (even though Jennifer Aniston is playing Standard Jennifer Aniston Character #1 again), the premise is ok... the only thing that's missing, sadly, is strongly written comedy.

Pretty decent, but left me somehow unsatisfied. I was thrilled to see Jim Carrey in another comedy movie after a pretty long "serious" stint, but it somehow doesn't feel like the same old Jim Carrey from the 90s. It's still a decent story, I'd have to say, but just feels like it's trying really hard not to be a comedy. When it starts taking dramatic/sad turns, it feels more like a buzzkill than tactful story progression. Still, if you like any of the primary actors, you're likely to enjoy it.

A comedy about being god, Jim Carrey surprisingly does this well enough for an atheist to enjoy it with no real problem. Granted, it does follow a rather standard comedy formula, but it certainly does work.

I'm not sure how much I like this. It's a bit all over the place, but punctuated by some funny scenes. Carrey is Carrey, as you might expect. I think it just runs out of steam. Watchable.

Jim Carrey can be grating. I can't stand Steven Carrell. Jennifer Aniston doesn't know how to play anything except for Rachel. Yet, somehow, this movie is fantastic! Carrey's shtick is there, but only when appropriate. But most importantly, Morgan Freeman is God (he plays Him in the movie as well).

Fun enough vehicle for Carrey is an at times uneasy mix of Capra-like whimsy and Carrey's forceful comic persona (feeling like a reprise of LIAR LIAR); this would have worked much better with a more subdued performer (say Tom Hanks) who could better handle the whiplashing moments when things turn serious. Still, it's sincere and good-natured, with Freeman clearly enjoying himself as God.

Bruce Almighty was one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. Its abstract concept gives it a novelty anyway but is a license for some surreal humour that you aren't going to see anywhere else. "This morning my tiny nipples went to France" has to be one of the most legendary film quotes of all time. But there is a plot and meaning to it all but it never gets preachy, just adds another dimension to the movie.

Jim Carrey tries another thought provoking comedy when a news reporter is given all of God's powers. However the movie is more comedy than thought provoking, and even then the best laughs are sporadic at best. Steve Carell steals most of those laughs in his limited screen time, and Morgan Freeman as God in possibly his most realistic role.

Say what you will, this movie is fantastic. Much like 'Dogma' and 'Oh God', this is a "COMEDY"!!! Sure it very openly and honestly deals with a lot of issues that seperate common sense from religion, but in a light hearted and entertaining way. Jim Carrey is flawless in this one, and Morgan Freeman finally chose to play himself as himself in a movie. A huge step in the right direction away from Ace Ventura.
