Bruce Almighty

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)

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene toward the beginning where Bruce is doing the cookie line in the mirror, Sam is in the other room peeing on the couch. When the shot changes to Sam, look to the far right and you can see a finger pointing to where the dog should be looking. The dog even appears to be looking straight in that direction. (00:06:40)

Nancy Burger

Factual error: In the Maid Of The Mist Scene where Bruce is talking on the phone with Grace in front of the boat, this is an impossible shot because the entrance to the Maid of the Mist is farther than that from the actual waterfall. (00:11:55)

Revealing mistake: When Bruce is at the restaurant and Jennifer Aniston believes that he is about to propose, watch her left ring finger, you can see the tan lines from her real wedding ring. (00:54:25)

Continuity mistake: Bruce is eating breakfast the morning after he pulls the moon closer. Grace makes him breakfast. In the first shot he put ketchup directly on the sandwich. In the following shot there is ketchup on the side of the plate but none on the sandwich. (00:44:15)

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Bruce changes his clothes with the ones on the store mannequin, he touches himself with one finger and smoke comes out. If you look in the windows to his left, there is no reflection of the smoke. (00:36:50)

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)

Continuity mistake: When Bruce returns home after getting God's powers and sings "What if god was one of us" in the door, his mouth is wide open as he sings 'home' but in the next shot where we see him from behind, his mouth is closed even though he's still holding the note.

Continuity mistake: When Bruce comes to the kindergarten to make up with Grace he shouts "love me", with his hair parted on the right. The camera cuts to Grace, then back to him, and it's parted on the left. (01:09:55)

Continuity mistake: When Bruce throws the pager out the window, it gets run over. When Bruce hears it going off again when he is taking the dog outside, it's not as smashed, and has extra stuff hanging from it. (00:23:50)

Continuity mistake: In the few days of Bruce being almighty the moon changes from full (when he pulls it closer) to half (after his second visit to the Omni Present building), and then back to full (when we see Grace praying). (01:16:20 - 01:21:55)

Continuity mistake: After Bruce and God finish cleaning the floor, Bruce rests his hands on the top of the mop. The way his hands are positioned change from shot to shot - first one on the other, then one on top and one on the side. (01:14:55)

Continuity mistake: When Bruce plays the finger game with God and puts his hands behind his back his shirt keeps hanging loose, except for one shot where it looks as if he had pulled it back with his right hand. (00:30:10)


Continuity mistake: When Bruce gets his tomato soup there are soup marks on the edges of the bowl. When it cuts to a closeup the marks are gone. (00:33:35)


Continuity mistake: When Bruce tries to keep Grace's perky picture out of her reach he holds the picture up over his head. When the camera angle changes the hand with the picture is on his chest. (00:05:15)


Continuity mistake: In the scene where Bruce makes Evan Baxter spout gibberish on the live newscast, the water glass at Evan's right elbow moves between shots. Sometimes it is closer to his elbow, sometimes farther to Evan's right. The glass also changes position in reference to the graphic projected behind Evan, although it appears that the graphic moves to the right also. (00:52:20)

Factual error: Every time Bruce closes his car door after its been attacked by the thugs, you can hear the sound of broken glass rattling in the door, but the window, whilst cracked is still complete.

Revealing mistake: When Grace is watching Bruce's report at the Niagara Falls, it is obvious that the picture has been dubbed onto the TV because there is no reflection of light. (00:16:10)


Grace: Oh my God!
Bruce: You can call me Bruce.
