Critic Reviews of "Bruce Almighty"
VarietyJuly 29, 2008
There's remarkably little done with a premise snatched from high-concept heaven, adding yet another file to the growing cabinet of under-realized comedies.
Time OutJune 24, 2006
Director Shadyac and his three scriptwriters prove much more fallibly flawed than their omnipotent hero.
New York ObserverJune 13, 2003
Mr. Carrey gets some of his biggest laughs in years by playing up the darker side of his character's small-mindedness.
L.A. WeeklyMay 29, 2003
It drowns [Carrey's] hilarious physicality in an ocean of sap.
Village VoiceMay 27, 2003
Bruce takes over for the vacationing deity, but despite an initial surge of jolly, somewhat cruel chaos (as when he forces the new anchor to unreel paragraphs of gibberish on camera), things soon turn soggy.
Ebert & RoeperMay 27, 2003
... on at least three or four occasions, Carrey made me laugh so hard I had tears in my eyes -- and that's a heck of a trick.
Common Sense MediaDecember 22, 2010
Happily deranged comedy has typical Carrey humor.
7M PicturesSeptember 21, 2010
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.

For all its swings for the fences, the movie never rises above being lightly amusing.
Cinema CrazedApril 29, 2009
It fails to really use Carrey's comedic ability and it ultimately wastes the potential it reaps.
Sacramento News & ReviewAugust 07, 2008
The inspiration flags after a while, but there are many hilarious moments, and the resolution (thanks to Jennifer Aniston as Carrey's put-upon girlfriend) is sweetly touching.

This is another of Jim Carrey's surefire vehicles that can be whittled down to a phrase: Jim Carrey is the Grinch; Jim Carrey is God.
