“It’s good, it’s GOOD!” Yes that’s right, this movie is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen,. Staring Jim Carry, Jennifer Aniston and Morgan Freeman in this hit comedy from Universal. Not all doesn’t this movie one of Jim Carry’s better films it’s all around a good movie. The movie is rated PG-13 and has all around good special effects when need. The plot is very good and the funny factor is out of this world.
The movie starts off with Bruce and man in his late 30′s working for WKBW still pushing the lesser side of the news. Hist dreams of hitting it big as a news anchor but it seems everyone (including god) are pushing him down. Bruce rants about how god is picking on him so much that he ends up losing his everything all in one day. Finally someone has had it, GOD (played by Morgan Freeman) calls forth Bruce and give him all his power and challenges him to take on the big job to see if he can do it any better.
I can’t see anyone else playing in this movie. Overall it was just down right funny. I had to see the movie 3 times just to get it all in due to me laughing so hard and missing the next few scenes. One big hitting scene was when Bruce was at a cook off and a meter hits just outside it. That scene was the best as you if just looked at his face when it happen. “What if god was one of us..” The lines given by the actors where right on and for me this movie has become one of my weekly watches just because. If you own the DVD you get to see the deleted scenes which are just great. If the movie itself wasn’t what you need then the outtakes, OMG so good. Freemen did a good job with his role too. I mean the jokes and puns were done it was just overall dam good and yes it was gooood.
If you want to stop and cut the jokes and move on to the real story we can for a sec. Jim Carry and Jennifer Aniston work very well together. In fact I can see them teaming up on other projects in the near future. It was over all very good how each show their characters and how they change through the story to the end. Morgan Freeman did a dam good job in his role. He was right to the point and was still funny as he is very good at doing that in movies. Lets not forget the people behind the scene now. They did a great job with this movie. Tom Shadyac did a great job as well as the script writers and the people working on the sets and make up. I would have to say the DVD cover is created as hell. The Earth as a yo-yo (HA HA).
If you follow the movie from start to finish you will understand it all and well its a good script. It stars off very good showing you why Bruce is in the spot he’s in and the way the jokes flow with the story and it moves on to the next scene. I for one didn’t find a moment where I would want to skip to fall asleep. The whole god thing may get some people up in arms and I’m sure it did. But don’t forget that his is a movie and not real life. It’s met to entertain us and give us a good life outside of our own problems. I’m sure many people can understand the story and even believe whats going on the scene. I for one had a blast with it.
There was only a few things in the story that just didn’t work out for me and well was just them going over the top. The whole finding the body which all the records and the weed with CH 5. It was just over the top but was very funny. (Spoiler here) Near the end when he got hit by the truck, sorry but he would be dead like run over dead not just hit and fly a few feet. Even know this movie is about god giving his power to another, I don’t know maybe because he had god’s powers that it protected him some. The movie came across as a down to earth movie and I thought that whole scene was just over the top too. The one thing I thought they messed up on was the end when you had Bruce is the hospital bed and he was holding Jennifer Aniston and you see the pray beads in his hand and then the next scene they appear there. Which if you watch it he had them in his hand from the start. Not a big deal but that’s what I look for in movies (being picky too).
Not to many in this movie. The way they were done as I think the editing team did a dam good job as in movie movies where CGI editing is added in they darken the screen to where its hard to see whats really going on to cover up the mistakes they made. Not int his movie. The best parts that I loved where the 7 fingers and the pulling of the moon. What most people forget now days that special effects don’t just mean CGI and computer graphics. No there are many non computer and just out right old style camera tricks in this movie. The dog going to the bath room was funny as hell and I’m still not sure if they got the god to do that or if they used some kind of CGI and well I don’t care as it was funny.
Over all I loved this movie. There wasn’t much that I hated in this movie so giving it a 5 out of 5 isn’t that far fetch if you have seen this film. The cast did a great job telling the story, the special effects where just out right good and made you believe it was real. The action in this movie was good, which keeps you wanting to know what happens next and the outtakes just rocked. Call me crazy but this movie was one of the best Jim Carry movies I have ever seen to date.
