After a bad day at work, a man suddenly gets a new job -- as the world's new Heavenly Father -- in this comedy. Bruce Nolan (Jim Carrey) is a television reporter working in Buffalo, NY, who has been growing increasingly dissatisfied with his existence, and after an especially bad day, he flies into a rage and curses God for making his life miserable. To Bruce's great surprise, the Supreme Being Himself (Morgan Freeman) appears, and tries to convince Bruce of the enormity of his task. Bruce, however, isn't buying it, so God gives him a chance to find out what he's up against; God bestows all of his powers on Bruce for a week, to see how he'd handle things. At first, Bruce has a great time bending the world around him to his will, much to the puzzlement of his girlfriend, Grace (Jennifer Aniston), but after six days God stops by to remind Bruce he hasn't done much to make the Earth a better place. Disappointed, God presents Bruce with an ultimatum -- he has one day to improve the world in a concrete way, or God will toss the planet back into the void. Bruce Almighty was directed by Tom Shadyac, who previously teamed with Jim Carrey for Liar, Liar and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.~Mark Deming
Bruce Nolan is a flunky reporter who is always sent on remote locations to cover ridiculous assignments for a local television station in Buffalo. His life goal is to be head news anchor, but his career is cut short when he swears on the air. After his neglected girlfriend dumps him and everything in his life goes awry, Bruce asks God for Help. God answers him, but Bruce cops an attitude and tells God how unfair He is and what a terrible job He is doing in the world. God listens patiently and tells Bruce that he can play God for a while, which is similar to giving explosives to a child.
Who hasn't railed at God from time to time? Bruce (Carrey) does so and finds himself drafted to take over some of God's duties. Needless to say, after amusing himself for a while, he finds the job harder than He expected.

Bruce Nolan’s Spiritual Intervention
Bruce Almighty is definitely one of those uplifting movies that gave me a feeling and determination to keep watching again (at least once every 1-2 months). One of the reasons; Bruce Almighty stars Jim Carey as Bruce Nolan. He enjoys his job as a television promoter but wants to aim higher in his career. He ends up going through an initiation process of reinventing himself after an experience where he reacted with extreme shock (on national television)after he found out that his rival Evan Baxter (Steven Carrell)got the job he wanted and is sitting next to a coworker named Susan Ortega (Catherine Bell) who he slightly admires. At the time Bruce Nolan was standing next to some type of cruise ship boat called Maid of the Mist and out loud sarcastically confused one of the woman he was interviewing for someone who was on the Titanic and Katherine Hepburn’s mom (with a light-hearted and respectful comedic nod to Kate Winslet). Fortunately he has a caring and self-confident girlfriend named Grace Connelly (Jennifer Aniston) who works at Small Wonders Daycare. Bruce Nolan’s life becomes radically changed after he spiritual surrenders to God and actually meets God (played by Morgan Freeman). God explains to him how things work which is really important as he makes sense of being able to do a Clint Eastwood impersonation, parting tomato soup in a diner, and walking on water. There are numerous pop culture references in Bruce Almighty as well such as when the song Power by Snap plays in the movie as he is using his newfound powers, Never Gonna Give Ya Up by Barry White during a scene involving him and his girlfriend (including Right About Now by Fatboy Slim). There is even an appearance by Tony Bennett in Bruce Almighty where Bruce Nolan takes his girlfriend Grace Connelly to an upscale restaurant called the Blue Palm. There is even a moment of a Mark Twain themed chili cookoff. Please know that I also understand that there were many other strong contributions from other actors/actresses in the Bruce Almighty as well as other pivotal pop culture references. I was just listing what my intuition was guiding me to write.
