We just got around to watching "Bruce Almighty." (For helpful parental information, see "Screenit.") After Bruce (Jim Carrey) gets overlooked for a promotion and then fired, he screams at God (Morgan Freeman), "You're the one who should be fired!" So God invites Bruce to take over his job for a while. The most theologically insightful moment comes later when Bruce's girlfriend (Jennifer Anniston) walks out on him. Bruce cries out to God, "How do you make someone love you without affecting free will?" And God answers, "Welcome to my world. When you figure that one out, let me know." Now there's a discussion starter!
