DVD: Bruce Almighty

So last week was time for another Amy movie. This time it was Bruce Almighty. And this time Amy actually watched it with me! Brandy skipped though.

I’m generally not a big fan of Jim Carrey or his sort of physical comedy. And this was not an exception to that. It had a few moments, but for the most part I got tired very quickly of Carrey’s exaggerated motions and funny faces and the like. And while the premise sounded interesting, I think it worked less well as executed and got a bit preachy at the end.

After it was over we watched some of the deleted scenes. Some of them I think would have made it slightly better, but even more of them were of the “I am so glad they left that out” variety.

Amy laughed a lot and enjoyed it though.

Anyway, overall this was a “bleh” for me. I enjoyed spending the time with Amy watching it, and I did laugh a few times, but it certainly wasn’t very memorable. Unless you’re a Jim Carrey fan, I’d probably skip it.
