Bruce Nolan (Jim Carrey) always wished for more out of life. Working as a field news reporter he was just paying his dues until he got promoted to news anchor. When Evan Baxter (Steve Carell) gets the promotion first, Bruce curses God (Morgan Freeman) and blames him for his entire life situation. God decides that Bruce should have a taste of what it is like to be him so he takes a weeks vacation and leaves Bruce in charge. Bruce enjoys the challenge as he spends most of his initial time focusing on improving his personal situation. Ignoring the important prayers and requests, Bruce focuses on important things like increasing the breast size of his girlfriend Grace (Jennifer Aniston) and improving his traffic situation. The requests start coming in faster than Bruce can handle and he becomes overwhelmed by the job. God is glad to retain his position upon his return and also pleased that Bruce learned something in the process.
