At the end of the worst day of his life, Bruce angrily ridicules and rages against God and God responds. God appears in human form and, endowing Bruce with divine powers, challenges Bruce to take on the big job to see if he can do it any better.Written by
At one point in this film, Jim Carrey makes a dead-on impression of Clint Eastwood, as his famous character Dirty Harry Callahan. Jim Carrey played Johnny Squares in The Dead Pool (1988), which was the final installment of the Dirty Harry franchise. Also, the part where the back windshield is shot out is probably a nod to the second Dirty Harry movie, Magnum Force (1973), in which one of the motorcycle cops shoots out the back window of Callahan's car in an attempt to kill him.

When Bruce answers prayers at high speed (at the computer), he puts his coffee mug down on his left. When he answers all prayers "Yes", the mug has disappeared from his left, and he picks it up from his right. See more »
If you want a serious laugh pain, watch this movie, and the things Bruce inflicts on his fellow newscaster. The deleted scenes are priceless. I don't know why they didn't include them in the original movie. It can't be because of time, since the movie is only 101 minutes long. Morgan Freeman is a brilliant actor, who has been overlooked for too long. Jim Carrey needs meds!
