A perfectly respectable Jim Carrey comedy that makes you feel as if you're right back in 1997, watching Liar Liar.
Owen Gleiberman - Entertainment Weekly
Stephen Holden - New York Times
This has some very funny moments and lines in its first act, and then jettisons the comedy in favour of a self-important deadly serious feelgood ending.
Peter Bradshaw - Guardian [UK]
Everyone is well cast and no one more perfectly than Freeman, who is far more God-like than George Burns ever was.
Claudia Puig - USA Today
Something between an indiscretion and an atrocity, in the key of that most human yet loathsome of self-indulgences, vanity.
Stephen Hunter - Washington Post
[Carrey] is so gifted a physical comedian that even mediocre material shines in his talented hands.
Michael O'Sullivan - Washington Post
Basically, Bruce Almighty is about getting Carrey to stop acting up. But without his misbehaving, there's no movie.
Wesley Morris - Boston Globe
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.
Ed Park - Village Voice
When Carrey is doing his thing as the Almighty, histrionically whipping up one miracle after another and relishing the power, Bruce has you spring-cleaning your lungs with laughter.
Jack Mathews - New York Daily News
It's Carrey who must carry this film, and he lifts Bruce Almighty to the heavens.
Bruce Westbrook - Houston Chronicle
Exactly what it looks like: a cute premise extended to feature length, with plenty of opportunity for Mr. Carrey to mug for the camera.
Chris Vognar - Dallas Morning News
Very snappy, sweetly moral.
Lisa Kennedy - Denver Post
A charmer, the kind of movie where Bruce learns that while he may not ever make a very good God, the experience may indeed make him a better television newsman.
Roger Ebert - Chicago Sun-Times
It's stunning how a movie about someone who gets to be the ultimate high-and-mighty could set its sights so low.
Mark Caro - Chicago Tribune
Because there's always been a megalomaniac lurking inside Carrey's manic personality, it's funny to see him literally play God.
Carrie Rickey - Philadelphia Inquirer
Jeff Strickler - Minneapolis Star Tribune
Yep, this is the Carrey America loves -- off-the-wall, over-the-top, elastic, spastic and fantastic.
Tom Long - Detroit News
The movie works when Carrey's mugging it up ... but melts into a saccharine tub of goo when he plays it straight.
Bill Muller - Arizona Republic
Mr. Carrey gets some of his biggest laughs in years by playing up the darker side of his character's small-mindedness.
Andrew Sarris - New York Observer
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.
Robert Koehler - Variety
The problem is that Bruce is an unlikable, self-centered character.
Lou Lumenick - New York Post
Often entertaining, but it could have been more.
Jay Boyar - Orlando Sentinel
Carrey seems engaged in a kind of war with his own best comic instincts.
Geoff Pevere - Toronto Star
The whole thing reeks of the formulaic, of a carefully packaged bid to propel the star back to his appointed place in the commercial constellation, all the while depriving him of the dark side that got him there in the first place.
Rick Groen - Globe and Mail
The laughs in Bruce Almighty are thinly spread across a vast, bland cake of uplifting sentiment.
Andrew O'Hehir - Salon.com
David Edelstein - Slate
A woefully underwritten motion picture that starts out as a dumb comedy before taking an ill-advised detour into mawkish sentimentality.
James Berardinelli - ReelViews
[Carrey] is in loose-limbed form, with healthy doses of fury, in a film that mostly succeeds at fusing his slapstick talents and more heartfelt inclinations.
Sheri Linden - Hollywood Reporter
An unevenness of tone, which becomes manipulative in effect, echoes and compounds the unconvincing look and feel of the entire film.
Kevin Thomas - Los Angeles Times
- Sight and Sound
Happily deranged comedy has typical Carrey humor.
Nell Minow - Common Sense Media
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.
Kevin Carr - 7M Pictures
For all its swings for the fences, the movie never rises above being lightly amusing.
Michael Dequina - TheMovieReport.com
It fails to really use Carrey's comedic ability and it ultimately wastes the potential it reaps.
Felix Vasquez Jr. - Cinema Crazed
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.
Jim Lane - Sacramento News & Review
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.
Rob Gonsalves - eFilmCritic.com
The premise sounds good, but this time around the result is forced and undercooked.
Joe Lozito - Big Picture Big Sound
If only the writers had thought to open up the concept beyond dog-on-toilet gags.
David Cornelius - eFilmCritic.com
Director Shadyac and his three scriptwriters prove much more fallibly flawed than their omnipotent hero.
- Time Out
- Film Threat
Bruce Almighty is the kind of movie that Jim Carrey should stick to.
Bill Clark - FromTheBalcony
Up until the last act, Bruce is a decent, if not stellar Jim Carrey comedy.
Ethan Alter - NYC Film Critic
[Aniston] contributes another professional outing in what's little more than a supporting role, indicating she's a serious actress and not just one of those jerks on Friends.
Tony Medley - tonymedley.com
It is laugh out loud funny and yet, heartfelt.
Mark Sells - Oregon Herald
The dearth of imagination is stupefying. Carrey is alternately embarrassing and terrifyingly detached, [and] Freeman has sold out.
Jake Euker - F5 (Wichita, KS)
Never before have I heard the F word used in a film about God, though I'm sure there were times in Passion of the Christ when Jesus was thinking it...
Oz - eFilmCritic.com
[Carrey's] latest is a comedy-thank heaven-that might even cause the guy upstairs to fall down laughing.
Thomas Delapa - Boulder Weekly
'You can see Carrey straining to reign in his more extreme comedic tendencies - and losing the battle.'
Lori Hoffman - Atlantic City Weekly
Consistently amusing, despite being formulaic and occasionally sappy.
Andrew Manning - Radio Free Entertainment
Freeman is one of the delights of the film, as an avuncular Deity with a sense of humor.
Daniel M. Kimmel - Worcester Telegram & Gazette
Carol Cling - Las Vegas Review-Journal
As another slick showreel for Carrey's talents, this is a slight but generally satisfying page in his career.
Jay Richardson - Future Movies UK
Leans too much into sappy sentimentality.
Scott Nash - Three Movie Buffs
While it may not be Almighty, it sure was mighty funny.
Kamal 'The Diva' Larsuel - 3BlackChicks Review
Move over Meg Ryan: When Harry Met Sally's climactic luncheonette scene will never be the same after Aniston's eye-popping rendezvous with her maker.
Prairie Miller - Long Island Press
I was really rooting for Bruce to ignore the responsibilities and give God the holy middle finger.
Josh Bell - Las Vegas Weekly
"Bruce Almighty" is an uproarious, enjoyable comedic farce that explores religion in many aspects.
Wesley Lovell - Oscar Guy
Wesley Lovell - Cinema Sight
Freeman does better here than in his recent showing as a mad colonel in Dreamcatcher, but there's a sense that this long-term asset to Hollywood has taken to accepting too many half-baked scripts in order to maintain his reputation for hard work.
Kim Newman - Sight and Sound
With Carrey on top form and some highly inventive sight gags, it's the proverbial laugh riot.
Simon Braund - Empire Magazine
The movie is in a hurry to show Jim Carrey goin' all crazy with his superpowers, and doesn't have the energy to give us a credible premise.
Ian Waldron-Mantgani - UK Critic
This is the rubber-faced, rubber-limbed Carrey of old, and it's a treat to watch his brilliant clowning, no matter how juvenile it is.
Gary Susman - Boston Phoenix
The wacky scenes are simply not very funny; anyone sitting in the audience could think of far better things to do with the powers of God than the film does.
Peter Sobczynski - Critic Doctor
What a disappointment.
- Sydney Morning Herald
Even Jim Carrey, whose mere presence can often liven up a film lacking in luster, can't save the almighty turkey that is Bruce Almighty.
David N. Butterworth - Movie Boeuf
Where The Majestic was an aggressive puppy licking your face, Bruce Almighty is the same dog urinating on your leg.
Nick Rogers - State Journal-Register (Springfield, IL)
... manages to walk a tightrope between comedic elements and 'Almighty' elements... God's teaching Bruce a life lesson, and everything (Bruce) does has to count if it's going to stick.
Kevin A. Ranson - MovieCrypt.com
The script is doggone clever and the ideas never stop coming. I laughed and it felt good.
Urban Cinefile Critics - Urban Cinefile
Carrey is good, but it's just a shame the film didn't aim a little higher.
Matthew Turner - ViewLondon
A smart, surprisingly thought-through blockbuster, with a decent grasp of the theological implications of its idea.
Nev Pierce - BBC
Carrey manages to balance the film's often outlandish humor with a surprisingly touching, if ultimately simplistic, look at the relationship between humans and God...
James Kendrick - Q Network Film Desk
Even though Carrey tries to make Bruce a real, likeable (albeit madcap) character, Shadyac encourages him to shamelessly go over the top in the godlike scenes, which undermines the whole film.
Rich Cline - Shadows on the Wall
The yocks appeal mostly to the juvenile funnybone. But, the message -- humility through wish fulfillment -- is too mocked up with a supposed sympathy for the character than that which we discover on screen.
Jules Brenner - Cinema Signals
Garth Franklin - Dark Horizons
Bruce Almighty is a walking mid-life crisis bankrupt of knowledge and energy, and the sad part is that no one involved even seems to realize it.
David Keyes - Cinemaphile.org
Would have been better if Keifer Sutherland had reprised his role as the voice of God.
Stephen Himes - Film Snobs
Todo Poderoso e capaz de fazer rir, e verdade. Mas esta longe de ser a milagrosa comedia que sua interessante premissa poderia ter gerado.
Pablo Villaca - Cinema em Cena
Carrey's latest is a return if you will - albeit only a slightly more mature one - to the slapstick that made his the biggest name in big-screen comedies.
Todd Gilchrist - FilmStew.com
Compared to "Oh, God!," "Bruce Almighty" doesn't have a prayer.
Linda Cook - Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)
In the beginning, there was a comic talking out of his butt. And it was good.
Mark Ramsey - MovieJuice!
There's something to be said for a film that keeps us smiling rather than one that has a few funny moments before disappearing from memory forever.
Josh Gilchrist - Billings Outpost (Montana)
[A] cardboard, fast-food vat of lowest common-denominator fluff.
KJ Doughton - Nitrate Online
Carrey is encouraged to be as silly as he can get. And he needs to be, as the last of the film is a colossal wet blanket.
Brian Orndorf - Modamag.com
The film is worth seeing for Freeman and a few isolated gags, but Bruce is never the wildly funny farce it might have been, nor the deep-dish meaning-of-life tract it thinks it is.
Ken Hanke - Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
Bruce Almighty is proof that "high concept" movies can also be well-crafted and ambitious...There's plenty of smart comic filmmaking at play throughout.
Mike McGranaghan - Aisle Seat
The humor works (albeit with reservations), and once you get through the syrup, the film has a surprisingly relevant and humanistic lesson to pontificate.
Mark Dujsik - Mark Reviews Movies
It drowns [Carrey's] hilarious physicality in an ocean of sap.
John Powers - L.A. Weekly
Director Shadyac (Liar Liar) knows how to play Carrey's instrument in such a way that he can have a real story & still play up the laughs & supernatural aspects to the hilt.
Karina Montgomery - Cinerina
A concept without exploration, there's not much of a movie here.
Mark Palermo - Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)
I have not laughed this hard at a comedy in a long time, and several scenes that aimed for the gut had me wiping tears from my eyes.
Steven Snyder - Zertinet Movies
As if running low on dramatic irony, Jim Carrey and his just-add-water team of merry pranksters from 'Ace Ventura: Pet Detective' and 'Liar Liar' come armed with a premise as heavenly as they come - and aim for sea level.
Jonathan R. Perry - Tyler Morning Telegraph (Texas)
Closer to Patch Adams than Ace Ventura.
Dan Fazio - Citysearch
When Bruce Almighty's Act III schmaltz-fest kicks in, the film feels as schizophrenic as the audience feels insulted.
Scott Weinberg - eFilmCritic.com
It'll be a miracle if the movie isn't a hit but my guess is that, upon seeing it, only the very rare viewer will give thanks.
Rick Kisonak - Film Threat
Jim Carrey's blessed with such incredible comedic talent and precise comedic timing that he elevates the mediocre material.
Susan Granger - www.susangranger.com
... 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.
Richard Roeper - Ebert & Roeper
A goofy crowd-pleaser, which is all right, I suppose, yet strange. After all, if you have the powers of God to play with, you'd expect to have a little more ambition.
Jeffrey Chen - Window to the Movies
John Beifuss - Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
It's really about a generation's sense of entitlement, with God thrown in as the ultimate "dad" you can go and complain to.
D.K. Holm - Movie Poop Shoot
The crude comedy is funny and the sentimentality is touching, but the two halves mix like oil and water.
Robert Roten - Laramie Movie Scope
Where The Truman Show delivered its sermon on Calvinism in modern times with humor, humanity, and grace; Bruce Almighty tries to same with cheap sentiment and cheaper jokes.
Jimmy O - Film Snobs
I was in comedy heaven!
Danny Minton - KBTV-NBC (Beaumont, TX)
I can't help but wonder if the film might have worked with a more sincere, if less comically inspired, actor at the helm.
Kimberley Jones - Austin Chronicle
Two thirds Liar Liar and one third The Majestic ... If you can forgive the film's sappy last act, you can still have a good time laughing at Carrey's antics.
Steve Rhodes - Internet Reviews
It offers plenty of opportunities for Carrey to show off his wonderfully elastic comedy muscles.
Kevin Lally - Film Journal International
Bruce Almighty has a great premise that collapses into feel-good stickiness, after an often-hilarious 45 minutes.
Marshall Fine - Journal News (Westchester, NY)
A pleasurable film that that loses some steam down the stretch but is ultimately fun for a period of time.
Wilson Morales - BlackFilm.com
A smart, snappy comedy.
Eric D. Snider - EricDSnider.com
Based on its wasted potential, something tells me the cinema gods wouldn't be nearly as forgiving.
Dustin Putman - DustinPutman.com
The film just didn't seem to have enough to sustain its ripe premise.
JoBlo - JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Even with all its predictability, Bruce Almighty and its star Jim Carrey still leaves you crying from laughter.
Kit Bowen - Hollywood.com
Jim Chastain - Norman Transcript
This is one of Carrey's 'in-between' films, the kind best suited to his lofty ambitions but rather limited acting ability.
Joe Baltake - Sacramento Bee
Here is what God says: Stop 'looking up.' Stop looking to God. Look to yourself instead. Make a difference. Give blood. Take the high road. Forgive. Be satisfied with what you have. Oh. Is that what we'd be doing, if only we'd stop 'looking up.'
Steven D. Greydanus - Decent Films Guide
For the first half of the film all is right with the world and you're reminded why it is Jim's one of our most adored mega stars.
Emily Blunt - Blunt Review
If you're looking for a decent Jim Carrey flick, consider your prayers answered.
- E! Online
A lame supernatural comedy that loses Jim Carrey in a wilderness of witlessness.
Bob Strauss - Los Angeles Daily News
It's not a divine comedy, but it beats getting struck by lightning (if God doesn't have a sense of humor, don't stand next to Jim Carrey).
Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone - TheMovieChicks.com
The script takes the safe, formulaic route to a predictable happy Hollywood ending, Frank Capra-style.
Gary Brown - Houston Community Newspapers
Finally, there's an answer to the lyrics posed in Joan Osborne's annoying song One of Us. And star Jim Carrey is the one to thank/blame.
Jon Niccum - Lawrence Journal-World
One gets the feeling that for a movie star like Carrey, being God is a lateral move at best.
Sean Means - Salt Lake Tribune
A fun summer flick, but it's certainly not God's gift to comedy.
Louis B. Hobson - Jam! Movies
This is a wonderful movie. Far better than it's supposed to be.
Eric Lurio - Greenwich Village Gazette
One idea stretched thin.
Cynthia Fuchs - PopMatters
[Bruce Almighty] marks Carrey's worst movie to date (and no, I'm not forgetting that dreadful Ace Ventura sequel)...
David Nusair - Reel Film Reviews
The script became as gooey as the bounteous torso of Marlon Brando.
Scott Feschuk - National Post
Jim Carrey gets the chance to shine in funny and serious scenes as he cavorts through 'Bruce Almighty'-- and he's got the power to do both.
Betty Jo Tucker - ReelTalk Movie Reviews
Like nearly all the Carrey movies, Bruce Almighty groans from the disparity between his talent and the writers working hard to deliver broad, forced material that only he might save.
David Elliott - San Diego Union-Tribune
Like his early work, it's not a particularly good film -- insipidly staged, inanely plotted, too weak to withstand the weight of any inquiries into logic or continuity -- but Carrey's energetic mugging, particularly early on, makes it relatively painless.
Shawn Levy - Oregonian
Often quite funny.
Duane Dudek - Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
- Sunday Times (Australia)
Carrey still has 'it'.
Paul Salfen - Supercala.com
[Director]Tom Shadyac . . . has taken this predictable, hackneyed, and astonishingly unentertaining script and rendered it lethargic, the pacing tedious
Andrea Chase - Killer Movie Reviews
...as much as "Bruce Almighty" has charm - it's a drab charm at best.
Tony Toscano - Talking Pictures (U.S.)
It starts in darkness, moves into safe Liar Liar-type territory, and ends with boring Significance.
Jeffrey M. Anderson - Combustible Celluloid
Lurches along in fits and starts, from funny to embarrassing, from earnest to egotistical, from yuks to yuck!
Bruce Kirkland - Jam! Movies
Midrange Carrey, neither as artful as The Truman Show nor as singularly crude as Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.
Robert Denerstein - Denver Rocky Mountain News
- Baltimore Sun
A small, sad, cheap movie.
MaryAnn Johanson - Flick Filosopher
While the filmmakers work the concept for a few nice twists, most of what follows feels as gimmicky and contrived as it is, with only Carrey's superhumanly energetic delivery keeping many scenes from falling flat.
Michael Tunison - Boxoffice Magazine
If you are a fan of Carrey's comedic talents, and if you just want a few laughs, Bruce Almighty is all-righty, then.
Staci Layne Wilson - Fantastica Daily
At the end of the day, Carrey is far more palatable and sincere under a devil's mask than a cardboard halo.
Jan Stuart - Newsday
Carrey's shtick is beginning to seem tired.
Mick LaSalle - San Francisco Chronicle
When Carrey is using his power to make a pompous news anchor break wind while on air, God's in his heaven, and all's right with the world.
Gary Thompson - Philadelphia Daily News
Are you there God? It's me, Moviegoer. Please, why do movies like this happen?
Frank Lovece - TV Guide's Movie Guide
Like its protagonist, it's too willing to ignore its assets. We don't ask much from our summer movies; a little effort should not be beyond this one's grasp.
Rob Vaux - Flipside Movie Emporium
The film, particularly in its first and last third, seems sadly devoid of imagination.
Moira MacDonald - Seattle Times
...as entertaining as you can expect a Friday night date-movie to be.
Audrey Rock-Richardson - Tooele Transcript-Bulletin (Utah)
Carrey makes the most of the material, but his is only a mediocre effort and clearly far from his best work.
Jim Judy - Screen It!
Your tolerance for Bruce will depend on the sensitivity of your cinematic sweet tooth. Sweet to one viewer is sappy to another.
Jack Garner - Rochester Democrat and Chronicle
Although the movie never quite explores all the heavenly possibilities, it does provide some wicked chuckles.
Stephen Whitty - Newark Star-Ledger
A very funny and enjoyable film.
Clint Morris - Moviehole
I've seen more wit in straight-to-video Ernest flicks.
Kevin N. Laforest - Montreal Film Journal
The tale goes all sentimental and preachy, which might have worked had the director been Frank Capra. But it isn't; it's Tom Shadyac.
Todd Anthony - South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Definitely Carrey at his wackiest, goofiest and most endearing, which is definitely a welcome surprise.
Jeff Vice - Deseret News, Salt Lake City
In fact, the force fed pious platitudes coupled with Carrey's familiar rubber-faced shtick renders this pseudo-virtuous vehicle a one-way ticket to the pearly gates of mediocrity.
Frank Ochieng - Movie Eye
Carrey is utterly delightful, whether pulling off some hilarious pratfall or energizing the most mundane piece of dialogue.
Eleanor Ringel Gillespie - Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Lacks the insane, anything-goes energy this premise deserved.
Rene Rodriguez - Miami Herald
A mixed bag.
Tor Thorsen - Reel.com
Plays to the middle of the road - designed to be a big, safe, summer movie.
Jamie Gillies - Apollo Guide
I wonder what a Mike Nichols could have made of this.
Eugene Novikov - Film Blather
...a great concept -- a clod becomes God.
Josh Larsen - Sun Publications (Chicago, IL)
This hilarious parable about the opening of a selfish man's heart reveals why all the world's religions treasure the spiritual practice of play.
Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat - Spirituality and Practice
What Bruce should have used his powers for was a better script.
Nell Minow - Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies
It's a crazy quilt made of bits from all of Shadyac's work.
Lawrence Toppman - Charlotte Observer
Mighty bad, like a lowbrow version of 'It's a Wonderful Life' rewritten by the Farrelly Brothers for a middle-aged Jerry Lewis.
Frank Swietek - One Guy's Opinion
The saving grace of Bruce Almighty -- and it is a big enough one to make the movie worth seeing, despite its flaws -- is Carrey, the most intelligent and inventive comedian we have.
Chris Hewitt (St. Paul) - St. Paul Pioneer Press
Happily, Carrey is back with his trademark facial expressions and outrageous physical comedy.
Lisa Leigh Connors - Christian Science Monitor
It's a Wonderful Life is a homemade apple pie, warm from the oven and topped with vanilla bean ice cream. Bruce Almighty is a bag of Nacho Cheese Doritos.
Mary F. Pols - Contra Costa Times
Most of the time, it's unclear whether Bruce is a god or a poltergeist.
Phil Villarreal - Arizona Daily Star
Jim Carrey riffs, wickedly, on what it's like to be God, then whiffs, sanctimoniously, on what it's like to be human.
Bruce Newman - San Jose Mercury News
The movie is mainly an excuse to display special-effects gags in the form of the various miracles manifested -- some of which are highly imaginative, some of which aren't.
William Arnold - Seattle Post-Intelligencer
After playing the ideal CIA chief in "The Sum of All Fears" and president in "Deep Impact," Morgan Freeman can add God to the list of positions he seems tailor made for.
Laura Clifford - Reeling Reviews
If the results are something less than inspired, they remind us there is godliness in silliness.
Terry Lawson - Detroit Free Press
Carrey's return to comedy is divine, even if Bruce ends up a few Hail Marys short of almighty.
Sean O'Connell - Eclipse Magazine
In several ways the movie is an apathetic revision of The Truman Show, with Carrey starring as both Truman and Christof.
Chuck Rudolph - Slant Magazine
This picture can be summed up perfectly in two words. Ready? God. Awful.
Glenn Kenny - Premiere Magazine
Nothing is permitted to get in the way of letting the star unleash his trademark exaggerated facial expressions and out-of-left-field line readings. ...There's really only one person up there on the screen; everyone else might as well be wallpaper.
James Sanford - Kalamazoo Gazette
Pious sentiment clashes with comic histrionics, leaving the story floundering for tact and grasping at an indistinct point.
Jeanne Aufmuth - Palo Alto Weekly
Jim Carrey may be unconvincing as a TV newsman...but as an everyday joe temporarily granted all God's powers, his return to crackpot comedy is a welcome summer movie treat.
Rob Blackwelder - SPLICEDWire
Religion can be a touchy subject, but Almighty dances through the Jesus minefield with style and class.
Joshua Tyler - CinemaBlend.com
Less Oh, God! than Dear God.
Walter Chaw - Film Freak Central
Victoria Alexander - Movie Reviews in Croatian
So funny I seriously thought I was going to fall out of my chair.
Christopher Null - Filmcritic.com
Lacks the imagination that should be commensurate with a story about a guy holding the powers of God.
Harvey S. Karten - Compuserve
Carrey forces it early on, stiff, awkward. But becomes comfortable once he gets those God Powers. He's funny, but it's Steve Carell who garnishes the film's belly laughs.
Ross Anthony - Hollywood Report Card
