MOVIE:  BRUCE ALMIGHTY *

GUEST:  Nathan Arizona

NUTSHELL:  Taking a break from such weighty roles as in “The Truman Show,” “Man on the Moon,” and “The Majestic,” Jim Carrey stretches himself as an actor by giving a rubber-faced, Jerry-Lewis-like performance.

GOOD THINGS:  Morgan Freeman, Steven Carell, Jennifer Aniston, News reporter on-air meltdowns (something near and dear to my heart), Barry White music

BAD THINGS:  Professionally, I’m bothered by the ethical implications of using one’s omnipotence to send colleagues to prison for possession of massive amounts drugs.

FEATURES:  Niagra Falls. The astrophysical implications of drawing the moon closer to the earth. The Buffalo Sabres winning the Stanley Cup?? (If they really wanted to depict an act of God, they should have had the Bills winning the Super Bowl…)

UNCOMFORTABLE MOMENTS:  Bruce tries to use his God power to get his girlfriend to take him back.

NOTABLE:  Astonishingly, this movie features one of the more accurate depictions of a TV news room since “Broadcast News.”

BEST PART:  The butt monkey!

BEST LINE:  Back to you, fuckers!

CROWNS:  4 1/2 out of 5

*(It just works better in all caps)
