Every time something in our life goes wrong we curse god, we curse our luck and we wish our life could be better. Who wouldn't want the power of god to change our own world for good? But gaining gods responsibility is not as easy as it might look. Bruce Nolan (Carrey) is a TV news reporter who never got the big stories but was stuck with the smaller insignificant stuff. Frustrated with his life, his bad luck and how things are just not working out, he curses God (Freeman) who decides to teach Bruce a lesson. He grants Bruce all of his powers and tells him to the job of being God for a while and see how it is. Bruce has a field day with his wife Grace (Aniston), he improves his life at work and does the biggest mistake of granting every ones wishes to be true. The movie portrays our perception of God and how at times we wish for something but at the same time don't know the consequences of what we wish for. We might want something but if given the opportunity to grant that desire, we might just think twice about what we asked for. The movie is a good mix of comedy and romance and with Jim Carrey doing the slapstick stuff it can never get any better. A light entertainer which makes you laugh and improves your mood.
Thumbs up: Jim Carrey, an overall decent entertainer
Thumbs down: More humour maybe?
