Bruce Almighty

—Bruce Almighty—

Jim Carrey stars in a new comedy where he performs the main character. This actor stared in many other director’s Tom Shadyac’s films like 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 was not happy, and after a particularly bad day when everything goes wrong, he blames God. After shouting out a tirade of cu urses to God, God (Morgan Freeman in a gentlemanly white suit) responds and challenges Bruce to take over the control 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 intentions. Like a kid in a candy store, Bruce sets off making one disastrous, decision after another. He pu ulls the moon closer to the earth so he can have a more romantic evening with Grace, without a twig that his actions cause a tidal wave in Japan. Ore responds to the prayers of the world with a mass-email &#

#8220;yes” that creates millions of lottery winners, riots, and mayhem. Finaly, Bruce proves he is only a human, and cannot possibly fill God’s shoes, although he has a great time trying.
