    A surprisingly accurate movie theologically with thought-provoking subplots (what would you do if you were God? What would be the ramifications of our sinful inclinations when combined with the powers of God? How does God's power interact with free will? etc). The unique romantic comedy combines with those theological conundrums to create a story that is both mentally stimulating and entertaining. The only knocks on this movie from a family perspective are some sexual situations/innuendo, language and a flip of the bird.

    A television field reporter for a local station in Buffalo, New York blames God for all the wrongs in his life and claims he can do God's job better than him. Then God takes him up on that offer. The first two acts of this movie are hard to watch as Bruce makes bad decision after bad decision. The final act does a good job bringing it all together and giving you the warm-fuzzies by the end. Jim Carrey does a great job in the title role with his over reactions putting us in his shoes really well. I believe I will forever see Morgan Freeman whenever I picture God from now on. The message is good here, but I think the enjoyment of this movie depends on if you can get through the first half of it.

    Flawed, sure, but who genuinely doesn't want to see the "if only I was God" premise played out by Jim Carrey? It doesn't go down the pious route - which wouldn't be believable - but Bruce tries to use this power for personal gain. There's some amusement in here and Carrey's 'everyman' character does come across fairly believably. Morgan Freeman also makes a good God, I think it's fair to say.

    What a great idea for a movie and who better than Jim Carrey to turn it into something really fantastic? But like so many films of this ilk, the premise fails to reach its potential as either a good comedy or a meaningful message.

    Unfunny comedy only has a few laugh out loud jokes.
