10 years of Flick Filosopher: what to do with all that godlike power…

Since talk of Evan Almighty is in the air, a look back at what spawned it. From my review of Bruce Almighty:

It’s a great idea, ripe for exploration, teeming with opportunities for humor and pathos and drama, but you can’t give it to a team of screenwriters including someone like Steve Oedekerk, the man who’s made many, many movies about thumbs, and then give the script to someone like Shadyac, who ordered his sense of the ethereal from a late-night infomercial for only three easy payments of $39.99. Cuz then you end up with a small, sad, cheap movie, one in which Jim Carrey uses his chance to be God to do bad impersonations and make his girlfriend’s boobs bigger.
