Jim Carrey returns to his zany manic roots in this Capraesque comedy from director Tom Shadyac (ACE VENTURA PET DETECTIVE and LIAR LIAR). Carrey stars as Bruce Nolan a television reporter in Buffalo New York who lives a normal life with his sweet girlfriend Grace (Jennifer Aniston). But Bruce isnt satisfied and after a particularly bad day where everything goes wrong he blames God. After spewing a tirade of curses Gods way God (Morgan Freeman in a gentlemanly white suit) responds and challenges Bruce to take over and see if he can run things better. Of course there are some conditions Bruce can only have the almighty powers for 24 hours and only in the Buffalo area. This doesnt stop Bruce and he responds to his newfound powers with selfish childlike zeal. Like a kid in a sweet shop Bruce sets off making one hysterical yet disastrous decision after another. He pulls the moon closer to the earth so he can have a more romantic evening with Grace unaware that his actions cause a tidal wave in Japan and responds to the prayers of the world with a mass-email yes that creates millions of lottery winners riots and mayhem. Ultimately Bruce proves he is only human and cannot possibly fill Gods shoes although he has a great time trying.
