Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 05/23/2003
"...The notion of omnipotence prompts Mr. Carrey to go to new adrenaline-crazed comic extremes....[He] sustains a maniacal energy that explodes off the screen in blinding electrical zaps..."
USA Today - 05/23/2003
"...The supporting cast, led by Jennifer Aniston and Steven Carrell, offers up some engaging comedy..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 05/23/2003
"...A charmer....[Aniston] can play comedy, which is not easy, and she can keep up with Carrey while not simply mirroring his zaniness..."
Box Office - 07/01/2003
"...Carrey, for his part is in hilarious form as Bruce..."
Total Film - 07/01/2003
"...It works. High concept, low comedy. What more do you want from a Carrey flick' And there are some neat touches too..."
Uncut - 12/01/2003
"[Carrey] is a comedy giant."

Product Description:

Jim Carrey returns to his zany, manic roots in this Capraesque comedy from director Tom Shadyac (ACE VENTURA: PET DETECTIVE and LIAR LIAR). Carrey stars as Bruce Nolan, a television reporter in Buffalo, New York who lives a normal life with his sweet girlfriend Grace (Jennifer Aniston). But Bruce isn't satisfied, and after a particularly bad day where everything goes wrong, he blames God. After spewing a tirade of curses God's way, God (Morgan Freeman in a gentlemanly white suit) responds and challenges Bruce to take over and see if he can run things better. Of course, there are some conditions; Bruce can only have the "almighty" powers for 24 hours and only in the Buffalo area. This doesn't stop Bruce, and he responds to his newfound powers with selfish, childlike zeal. Like a kid in a candy store, Bruce sets off making one hysterical, yet disastrous, decision after another. He pulls the moon closer to the earth so he can have a more romantic evening with Grace, unaware that his actions cause a tidal wave in Japan and responds to the prayers of the world with a mass-email "yes" that creates millions of lottery winners, riots, and mayhem. Ultimately, Bruce proves he is only human, and cannot possibly fill God's shoes, although he has a great time trying.
