I Just Watched…

...Bruce Almighty starring Jim Carrey, Jennifer Aniston, and Morgan Freeman. I found it to be an enjoyable and entertaining movie.

Jim Carrey was funny and charming and alternately angry with, disappointed in, and pleased about the world and his lot in it as the movies progresses.

Jennifer Aniston plays his girlfriend and is as sweet and lovely and supportive as she can be... until she finally has had enough.

Morgan Freeman, in the role of God, is wise and wonderful, and that oh, so smooth voice calms and irritates Carrey as he tries his hand at “running the show.”

If you enjoy Jim Carrey’s performance, The Copper Queen Library also has The Truman Show on DVD, starring Jim Carrey as Truman. This movie pre-dated and predicted reality TV by several years.

Fans of Jennifer Aniston might be interested in borrowing Rob Reiner's Rumor Has It--, and Morgan Freeman fans will find Amistad, Dark Knight, Moll Flanders, Unfinished Life, and Million Dollar Baby, for which he won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Eddie "Scrap Iron" Dupris.

Why not come in, browse the collection, and enjoy a night at the movies -- at home!
