Bruce Almighty picture

Other mistake: Early in the film, Jim Carrey is watching TV during a sports segment. He is watching Channel 7, the station he works for.

However, when they show a clip of Ch. 7 News later, there are completely different graphics, and a completely different news set, both made for the movie.
