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.

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.

Continuity mistake: When God pages Bruce, Bruce says, "Hello 776-2323", only the number on the pager says 555-0123. Originally, the number on the pager was 776-2323. However, this caused a few problems (people with that number got calls), so it was changed, but without the appropriate voiceover. This is only the case on some DVDs - it's been changed completely on others.


Continuity mistake: After Bruce gets hit by the truck on the highway he is talking to God. The shot keeps switching from behind Bruce to facing him - in the shots behind his head a lock of hair is seen hanging over his forehead, though shots facing him show no hair.

Continuity mistake: There are two scenes in the movie where Grace is noted to have donated blood in the dialogue, one near the beginning, and one, the final scene. The blood donation is a fairly important turning point for Bruce's rehabilitation. And yet, neither of Grace's bare inner arms in either scene show any iodine, bruises, holes, or perhaps the easiest to spot, any small bandage that would result from blood donation.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Bruce and God are standing on water, after God reaches into the water to get the beaded bracelet, he puts the bracelet on his wrist. However, just as God turns to walk away the bracelet is in God's hand, not on his wrist. As you see God walk away he's looking down and it seems as if God is just then putting the bracelet on his wrist.


Continuity mistake: In the scene where he is parting the soup and the papers start blowing a paper gets on the back of the old mans neck, in the next shot it isn't there. A piece of paper is also in between Jim Carrey's arm when the man appears in the booth and then it isn't.

Bruce: God, why do you hate me?



Early in the film, Jim Carrey is watching TV during a sports segment. He is watching Channel 7, the station he works for. This clip they showed was of actual WKBW sports director John Murphy. The clip they showed was taken directly from a real WKBW newscast, with the authentic news set, and graphics. 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.



In Egypt, the film was banned by the state-run censorship body because it felt the comedy mocks God's sacredness.
