Bruce Almighty -- He's got the power, as the music in that trailer has been pounding into our heads for weeks now tells us. Jim Carrey, in full-on Ace Ventura mode, plays a perpetually dissatisfied newspaper reporter whose bitching and moaning attracts the attention of God (Morgan Freeman). Rather than smite the hapless mortal, or visiting a well-deserved plague of locusts upon him, God decides instead to give him the chance to see how he likes being God for a day. Turns out Jim would like it just fine, thanks. Rated: PG-13





*** The In-Laws -- Hollywood gets it right the second time in this remake of the overrated 1979 film, now starring Albert Brooks as a meek podiatrist, and Michael Douglas as a tough and slippery CIA agent, both of whom will soon be related when their kids marry. Brooks shows why he's been called a comic genius all these years, and Douglas proves again that he can do comedy as well as drama. Lots of sight gags to go along with the espionage and the Brooks character's paranoia, as well as some hilarious and very broad stuff from David Suchet as international criminal Jean-Pierre. (ES) Rated: PG-13
