It's no divine comedy, there's no real revelation, but the funny bits are up there with Jim Carrey's best.

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.

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.
