Hmm...I can't even recall what "Bruce Almighty" was about. But I have seen some controversial movies throughout the years. "Brokeback Mountain" comes to mind when I think about controversy. I think this was one of the few mainstream movies that dealt with the issue of homosexuality. I remember there being a lot of outcry when this movie came out in 2005. Then there was "The Da Vinci Code" based on Dan Brown's novel. Many religious groups weren't too happy about this movie. Some other movies I can think of are "Fahrenheit 9/11", "The Passion of the Christ", "Lolita" and some others.

Yes, American movies do thrive on controversy. That's how they make money with controversy.

The most controversial movie I have seen yet is called America: From Freedom to Facism. It was produced by Aaron Russo, the movie producer of Eddie Murphy and Dan Akroyd's movie Trading Places. The movie spells out all the ways that the Federal Reserve System is fraudulent and illegal, and that there is no legal requirement for US citizens to pay taxes on income. There is only a requirement that corporations (that make profit) to pay taxes on income. Aaron Russo totally covers the entire history of how the income tax law was passed in secret, and how the president event said later that he regretted selling out his country to a bunch of bankers and thieves, in the form of the Fed Reserve Bank. So controversial that they won't even put it on Netflix, even though In Plane Site (the truth about the 911 attacks) is on there right now! Crazy!

I really admire the Americans' guts in making such controversial movies. In my country if you say anything remotely criticizing the government, you'll get an unpaid "escort" wherever you go. Once, a poet wrote a satire which is fiction but reflects a little bit about the political climate in my country and that poet got that uninvited "escort" I was talking about earlier. It's scary to be controversial in my country.

I couldn't see how "Bruce Almighty" and "Evan Almighty" could be controversial since they are comedies and not historical films so there really isn't anything in their content to debate about. I wouldn't say this film was controversial but it definitely left a dreadful image in my mind, "120 Days of Sodom". I couldn't get pass 45 pages of the book by Marquis de Sade but messed around and saw the movie adaptation of the book. I still can't get oer people being forced to eat their own and others feces and the abuse those younger teenagers went through.On another note, the cinematography was fantastic.

i have seen both Bruce Almighty and Evan Almighty. i liked it both, but I like Evan Almughhty better. Although it was a comedy, it touched on corruption, legislation, social responsibility and human nature. But I don't think they're contorversial enough. I think Michael Moore's movies are controversial. It exposes US' double standards, and demythifies "the land of milk and honey". Not everything is green at the greener pasture after all.

I think those movies are funny. In my opinion, a true believer in God should be secure enough in their faith so as to not be bothered by trivial stuff such as movies with religious themes. Issues such as priests molesting little boys, and the tyranny and corruption within the churches...now thats true controversy.
