Happily deranged comedy has typical Carrey humor.

Ultimately, Bruce Almighty is an excuse for Jim Carrey to be crazy and zany. He puts on his comedy hat and has fun with the script. It's made for the Jim Carrey fan.

The inspiration flags after a while, but there are many hilarious moments, and the resolution (thanks to Jennifer Aniston as Carrey's put-upon girlfriend) is sweetly touching.

Bruce Almighty is the kind of movie that Jim Carrey should stick to.

[Aniston] contributes another professional outing in what's little more than a supporting role, indicating she's a serious actress and not just one of those jerks on Friends.

It is laugh out loud funny and yet, heartfelt.

Never before have I heard the F word used in a film about God, though I'm sure there were times in Passion of the Christ when Jesus was thinking it...

Consistently amusing, despite being formulaic and occasionally sappy.

Freeman is one of the delights of the film, as an avuncular Deity with a sense of humor.

As another slick showreel for Carrey's talents, this is a slight but generally satisfying page in his career.

While it may not be Almighty, it sure was mighty funny.

Move over Meg Ryan: When Harry Met Sally's climactic luncheonette scene will never be the same after Aniston's eye-popping rendezvous with her maker.

"Bruce Almighty" is an uproarious, enjoyable comedic farce that explores religion in many aspects.

With Carrey on top form and some highly inventive sight gags, it's the proverbial laugh riot.

This is the rubber-faced, rubber-limbed Carrey of old, and it's a treat to watch his brilliant clowning, no matter how juvenile it is.

... manages to walk a tightrope between comedic elements and 'Almighty' elements... God's teaching Bruce a life lesson, and everything (Bruce) does has to count if it's going to stick.

The script is doggone clever and the ideas never stop coming. I laughed and it felt good.

Carrey is good, but it's just a shame the film didn't aim a little higher.
