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:

What? I'm cutting that. They made

me wear that stupid thing. I don't

even look like myself. The hair is

one of the most important parts of

an on camera persona. Right out of

the gate, I lost the hair

advantage.

Grace looks at a photo,

GRACE:

Oh, my gosh, look at this one. My

sister is so drunk.

She places it in the album.

BRUCE:

Grace. Try to stay focused here.

I need your help.

GRACE:

Aren't you taking this a little too

seriously?

BRUCE:

It's sweeps Grace. It is serious.

There's an anchor job open. This

is important. This is our future!

Bruce points to the TV as he says "future," not realizing

he's pointing at the ridiculous image of himself with the

hair net bun. Grace can't help but giggle.

GRACE:

I'm sorry.

Bruce collapses into Grace's arms like a child. He clearly

has a fragile temperament.

BRUCE:

(sighs)

I'm never going to get anchor doing

these kind of assignments. I want

my work to matter.

GRACE:

It does matter. You're funny. You

make people smile. Come on, take a

break, help me put this album

together.

BRUCE:

(reluctant)

Alright.

Grace holds up a photo.

GRACE:

Oh look at this. It's the first

day we moved in together.

It's the two of them, younger, laughing.

BRUCE:

(down)

Yeah, so full of hopes and dreams.

GRACE:

Oh, here's me at my sister's

wedding. I caught the bouquet.

It's a picture of Grace overpowering the other bridesmaids

for the bouquet.

BRUCE:

You look pretty intense, hun.

GRACE:

Well, I was thinking about you.

Grace cuddles into Bruce.

BRUCE:

So, you're attracted to me in some

way, is that what you're trying to

say?

Grace rolls over onto Bruce.

GRACE:

You have no idea.

BRUCE:

I was saving myself for the wedding

night, but if you keep this up, I

may lose my resolve.

Grace stands, pulling Bruce up.

GRACE:

Well, that's the way the cookie

crumbles.

They kiss, stumbling toward the bedroom.
