    Bruce Almighty - 05/23




    From Hollywood.com

    Synopsis: Bruce Nolan is a local Eyewitness News TV reporter in Buffalo, New York, best known for doing human interest stories--which makes everyone happy but him. Bruce would much rather be replacing the soon-to-retire anchorman. Essentially, Bruce is disconnected with everything in his life and rarely misses an opportunity to complain about it. He has a loving girlfriend, Grace, who runs a day care center and adores Bruce in spite of his negativity. Bruce is handed a great opportunity when he's asked to do the 23rd anniversary of Niagra Falls' famed Maid of the Mist boat, which will air live during sweeps. But the mist hits the fan when it's announced on-air--just before Bruce goes live--that the co-anchor position, about to be vacated, is going to Bruce's superficial rival. In front of millions of viewers, Bruce has an on-camera meltdown, punctuated by a four-letter word not yet cleared for network television. On this worst day of Bruce's life, he's fired from the station, beaten up by a gang of toughs, and his car is vandalized. Furious, Bruce rails and rages against the Lord for his rotten luck--which is followed by a curious set of signs, one of which leads him to an old building called Omni Presents, Inc. There, Bruce meets a janitor who reveals himself to be who he really is--God! He's heard Bruce's complaints and now has an offer for the choleric newscaster--his job. By endowing Bruce with all his powers, God challenges him to take on the job and see if he can do any better!

    I'm not a Jim Carrey fan usually, but this looks funny. I just hope I haven't seen all the funny stuff in the trailers already.

    I just might have to see this in the theater instead of waiting for the video release. Sounds like it might be fun.

    Yes I do. It happens way too often, most recently on Anger Management. Why do they do that? Can't we have a little intrigue people??!!

    Well, Anger Management probably only had 30 seconds of funny stuff, so they had no choice

    This looks pretty good, the more I see the trailers. It looked kind of bad at first...

    Having grown up in Buffalo (which gets basically zero movie exposure), I wanted to see this even before they were airing the commercials simply to see my hometown on the big screen. I was so relieved when I saw the trailer and it actually looked funny!

    I'm not a big Jim Carrey fan either, but the things that he does well, he REALLY does well. Definitely a unique actor.
