* BeingGodIsHard: The movie explores this trope in detail, with God [[GodForADay giving a mere mortal (Bruce) all his powers for a short time]], to teach him a few things. Bruce at first thinks he can do a better job than God, but has trouble even dealing with prayers from his own neighbourhood, let alone the world. His attempt to make everyone happy (and deal with his workload) by just giving a blanket "yes" to every request results in everyone winning the lottery and rioting. And most importantly, he can't just make people be happy because he has to abide by free will.
-->'''Bruce:''' How do you make someone love you without affecting free will?
-->'''God:''' Son... {{welcome to my world}}.

* ScrewTheRulesIHaveSupernaturalPowers: With all the divine fun it's easy to forget Bruce actually commits quite a few crimes with his powers. He damages public property (Making a fire hydrant explode), steals clothes from a shop, sexually harasses a girl (making her skirt fly up), he assaults a thug (The monkey incident) and plants drugs on the reporters.

Bruce Nolan (Carrey) is a down-on-his-luck television reporter in Buffalo, New York. After being turned down for a job as an anchorman, he complains to {{God}} that He isn't doing His job the right way... so [[GodForADay God gives Bruce His powers to see what he can do with them.]]

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: While Bruce makes things right with most of the people he's wronged, some things are left unsolved. The news reporters he got arrested for drug possession are presumably still looking at life sentences, and all those people who were left homeless after the tsunami he accidentally caused are still homeless.
