Its interesting to me that Steve Carell really got his first big break after Bruce Almighty starring Jim Carrey, when he played a lesser role of another news anchorman. I can still recall being in tears in the scene where Carrey controlled how he was talking while reporting.
Now, Carrell stars and Jim Carey is in a smaller support role. The movie itself is good, not great, a little cheesy and very shallow at times but I would say its worth a rental. Interestingly, the times I laughed the hardest was when Carey was performing his “stunts”. Carey pretty much stole the show, like Carell did in Bruce Almighty. I wonder if it is like being a second shooter at a wedding, no pressure so it is much more easy to take risks and go for it.
