It’s obvious that without Carrey... this would not be a comedy, let alone much of a movie.

A perfectly respectable Jim Carrey comedy...

An unevenness of tone... echoes and compounds the unconvincing look and feel of the entire film.

Basically, Bruce Almighty is about getting Carrey to stop acting up. But without his misbehaving, there's no movie.

(The premise) may be a tad attenuated and the resolution a tad syrupy, but as raw material it's fine. What makes Bruce Almighty great is what Carrey does with fine.

The laughs in Bruce Almighty are thinly spread across a vast, bland cake of uplifting sentiment.

A smart, surprisingly thought-through blockbuster, with a decent grasp of the theological implications of its idea.

There are enough goofball touches in Bruce Almighty to carry the movie to a certain extent...

“Bruce Almighty” isn’t a bad film, just one badly in need of rewrites.
