Okay for kids?

Bruce learns the concept of free will and that every action has its consequences. But a mild seduction scene and some language makes this movie inappropriate for younger audiences. A.W.

Details Release Date: May 23, 2003; Rated: PG-13; Length: 94 Minutes; Genre: Comedy; With: Jim Carrey; Distributor: Universal; More

A perfectly respectable Jim Carrey comedy that makes you feel as if you're back in 1997, watching Liar Liar. Carrey plays Bruce Nolan, wacky feature reporter at a Buffalo TV news station, where he's the punchline of every office joke. Convinced that God is against him, he is summoned by the deity himself (Morgan Freeman), who decides to teach him a lesson by investing the lowly, self-pitying earthling with the full range of His powers. Carrey rules his madcap dominion with as much skill as ever, but it's hard to escape the feeling that we're watching Officially Unhinged Jim Carrey Routines, without the anarchy or surprise they had in his earlier films.
