  • Even apart from the fact that it's not nearly funny enough, Bruce Almighty is a peculiar film. show more

  • Everyone is well cast and no one more perfectly than Freeman, who is far more God-like than George Burns ever was. Freeman's God is wise, humble, wry, patient and funny but never mean-spirited. show more

  • As long as this deity remains childish, materialistic and narcissistic, Jim's in his heaven and all's right with the world. It's when the story reaches for maturity, spirituality and altruism that the divine spark of comedy sputters and nearly goes out. show more

    You would think this would be a horrid Religious-bashing movie. It is not. There is a fine line between humour and blasphemy, and Bruce Almighty is definetly walking that line.
