Josh Bell
Las Vegas Weekly

I was really rooting for Bruce to ignore the responsibilities and give God the holy middle finger.

Would have been better if Keifer Sutherland had reprised his role as the voice of God.

A woefully underwritten motion picture that starts out as a dumb comedy before taking an ill-advised detour into mawkish sentimentality.

Leans too much into sappy sentimentality.

Most of the time, it's unclear whether Bruce is a god or a poltergeist.

When Bruce Almighty's Act III schmaltz-fest kicks in, the film feels as schizophrenic as the audience feels insulted.

Something between an indiscretion and an atrocity, in the key of that most human yet loathsome of self-indulgences, vanity.

Like its protagonist, it's too willing to ignore its assets. We don't ask much from our summer movies; a little effort should not be beyond this one's grasp.

This is another of Jim Carrey's surefire vehicles that can be whittled down to a phrase: Jim Carrey is the Grinch; Jim Carrey is God.

Combustible Celluloid

It starts in darkness, moves into safe Liar Liar-type territory, and ends with boring Significance.

In fact, the force fed pious platitudes coupled with Carrey's familiar rubber-faced shtick renders this pseudo-virtuous vehicle a one-way ticket to the pearly gates of mediocrity.

If only the writers had thought to open up the concept beyond dog-on-toilet gags.

It fails to really use Carrey's comedic ability and it ultimately wastes the potential it reaps.

The wacky scenes are simply not very funny; anyone sitting in the audience could think of far better things to do with the powers of God than the film does.

The premise sounds good, but this time around the result is forced and undercooked.

Where The Majestic was an aggressive puppy licking your face, Bruce Almighty is the same dog urinating on your leg.

For the first half of the film all is right with the world and you're reminded why it is Jim's one of our most adored mega stars.

Palo Alto Weekly

Pious sentiment clashes with comic histrionics, leaving the story floundering for tact and grasping at an indistinct point.
