Debbie won the lottery.
Oh, yeah? You're kidding.
But I guess so did 400,000 other people, so she only won, like, $17.

Extremely enjoyable film.
The is the story of Bruce Nolan, played by Jim Carrey. Bruce is living with his girlfriend Grace played by Jennifer Aniston, and they have a comfortable life together, but Bruce wants more. Constantly looked over for more serious work as a news reporter because of his naturally goofy demeanor, he covets the news lead job that is coming open. When this falls through, Bruce goes on a self destructive rampage, cursing out God the entire time, even taunting him. As luck would have it, be it bad or good, God was listening. He bestows unto Bruce all his powers, to see if Bruce can do a better job of being God than God does. Bruce goes down the path of fixing his life to where he feels he should be, but looses Grace in the process.
Morgan Freeman who plays God, is about the most talented actor out there, and does not disappoint in this albeit small role. The story is great with a lot of laughs thrown in. And yes, there is a moral to this story as well.
