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.

Leans too much into sappy sentimentality.

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.

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

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

August 5, 2003
Freeman does better here than in his recent showing as a mad colonel in Dreamcatcher, but there's a sense that this long-term asset to Hollywood has taken to accepting too many half-baked scripts in order to maintain his reputation for hard work.

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

The movie is in a hurry to show Jim Carrey goin' all crazy with his superpowers, and doesn't have the energy to give us a credible premise.

July 8, 2003
This has some very funny moments and lines in its first act, and then jettisons the comedy in favour of a self-important deadly serious feelgood ending.

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.
June 28, 2003
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.
June 27, 2003
What a disappointment.
June 26, 2003
Even Jim Carrey, whose mere presence can often liven up a film lacking in luster, can't save the almighty turkey that is "Bruce Almighty."

... 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.

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

The script is doggone clever and the ideas never stop coming. I laughed and it felt good.
June 21, 2003
Carrey is good, but it's just a shame the film didn't aim a little higher.

A smart, surprisingly thought-through blockbuster, with a decent grasp of the theological implications of its idea.
