Bruce Almighty

Continuity mistake: After the riot in the streets of Buffalo, Bruce meets up with God again in the Omni Presents building. They discuss how everything is going wrong. At the close-up shot of Bruce's face when he says, "What do I do now?" the frame is flipped. You can tell this because his hair is parted on the wrong side and his nose looks different. (01:15:20)

Continuity mistake: When Jim and Jennifer are in the kitchen and Jennifer is commenting on how she thinks her boobs have gotten bigger, Jim is squirting ketchup onto his plate. When he first does this the ketchup goes everywhere all over his plate, cuts to Jennifer and then back to Jim and the ketchup is now in a nice neat pile. (00:44:30)

Suggested correction: At this point in the movie, Bruce (Jim) already has his "God" powers, and so it can be assumed, as he didn't of course mean to spray his ketchup everywhere, that he "willed" the spilled ketchup into a nice neat pile to clean up the mess. If you had "God" powers and ruined your food, you'd magically fix it, wouldn't you?

This is a valid mistake due to filming. There's no indication he used his God powers to fix it. If he's going to use his powers, why bother picking up the bottle with his hands at all?

Well he would have used the bottle because Grace was right there, so he needed to appear mortal. While it's possible he used his powers to fix it, there's nothing specifically to suggest he did so. And again, he was right in front of Grace, so he'd have to hope she didn't notice.

Continuity mistake: In the diner, Bruce is looking out the window and the waitress walks up to him. You can see the two coffee cups on the side of Bruce's table next to each other. When the waitress asks "Coffee?" and the shot changes, one of the cups is suddenly at the centre of the table. (00:31:15)

Continuity mistake: When Bruce has just smashed his car into the pole, he throws the prayer beads into the water and says, "The gloves are off, Pal," which is confirmed in the subtitles. Yet when God reads back what Bruce said from his file cabinet, God reads, "The gloves are off, God." (00:22:40 - 00:29:45)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Bruce is confronting the gang that beat him up earlier, he has the monkey come out of the guy, who falls to the ground in pain. After the other guys run away, there is a shot of Bruce taunting them, but the injured guy is not on the ground behind him, even though he should be visible. A second later, he reappears when Bruce turns to face him. (00:38:35)

Continuity mistake: When Grace and Bruce are talking in the car outside her work, a woman with a blue or purple shirt with clouds on it walks past with a woman. The shot cuts to Bruce, then back to Grace and the woman walks past again but this time with a man. (00:07:25)

Continuity mistake: In the "Maid of the Mist" scene, after Bruce yanks off the umbrella hat thing in anger, his hair is all mussed and wet. A shot or two later, it is neatly combed down, although he clearly had no time to do so. (00:16:10)
