Bruce Almighty script
Synopsis: Bruce Nolan's (Jim Carrey) career in TV has been stalled for a while, and when he's passed over for a coveted anchorman position, he loses it, complaining that God is treating him poorly. Soon after, God (Morgan Freeman) actually contacts Bruce and offers him all of his powers if he thinks he can do a better job. Bruce accepts and goes on a spree, using his new-found abilities for selfish, personal use until he realizes that the prayers of the world are going unanswered.

BRUCE (CONT'D)

Is it just a big cookie or does

this cookie represent the pride of

Buffalo? Our dedicated and hard

working citizens the key

ingredient, with a few nuts thrown

in.

(motions his eyes to the

Kowolski twins)

And finally, the love of our

families which provides the warm

chewy center making our beloved

Buffalo the sweetest place to live.

Camera is in CLOSE as Bruce signs-off.

BRUCE (CONT'D)

And that's the way the cookie

crumbles. I'm Bruce Nolan,

Eyewitness News.

Bruce's hair net SLIPS UP, PUFFING HIS HAIR INTO A BUN ON THE

TOP OF HIS HEAD. The Kowolskis and bystanders all laugh.

The frame FREEZES.

We PULL BACK from the TV and find Bruce holding the remote,

watching the recorded spot on TV. We are now...

INT. BRUCE AND GRACE'S APARTMENT - NIGHT

Bruce is with his longtime girlfriend, GRACE. She has a box

of photos on the coffee table in front of her organizing them

into a photo album.

BRUCE:

So, what do you think?

GRACE:

It's good.

BRUCE:

It sucks. It's a story about a

cookie. People with eating

disorders will be riveted,

(goes into huge pathetic

fan character)

Dear Bruce, love the bakery piece.

I can't wait to vomit so I can make

room for more cookies.

GRACE:

I thought it was funny. I love the

hair net. How'd you get it to do

that?
