A minister within the Malaysian Prime Ministers office has called for a total ban on Jim Carrey's hit film, "Bruce Almighty." Carrey's character is given the powers of God in the film.
Abdul Hamid Zainal said the film is "not appropriate to show the film in this country," and that "We cannot equate ourselves with God -- even as a joke."
He has suggested the film be given to the Islamic Affairs Department so that they can review it and decide on the ban. Just over 50% of Malaysia's population is Muslim.
