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)

Visible crew/equipment: When Bruce goes back to the building toward the end of the movie looking for God and finds it deserted, as he runs through it, you can see the shadow of a figure (a crew member) on one of the columns on the left. It even slightly moves as he's approaching the ladder as if trying to duck away from behind. (01:13:55)

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: This is definitely God's shadow. It's exactly where he appears a little later. So it's not a crew member, but a continuity error because Bruce must have seen him when entering the hall.

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.

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)

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)

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: Grace and her sister are at the Asian spa getting massages. The Asian woman walking on Grace's back steps all the way up to the base of her neck. The camera cuts to a different angle and the woman's feet are back down to the lower/middle portion of Grace's back. (00:50:05)

Matty Blast

Factual error: At the very end of the film Bruce is reporting on a drive for blood donors, and Grace leads him over to the booth to give blood himself - he is even wearing a tourniquet. However, he is supporting himself on a walking stick - he is not fully recovered from the injuries he received when he was run over, which happened when he was hit by a moving car - injuries which left him clinically dead. There is absolutely no way that a person who has suffered life threatening injuries and has undergone the (inevitably) intensive drug therapies and surgical procedures involved while under treatment in hospital in the fairly recent past would be allowed to give blood. There is no way that the Red Cross (or the US equivalent) would want to encourage people who have recently been hospitalised to try to give blood. Not only would that be the height of irresponsibility, they would be wasting precious resources and staff time turning away people who would not be allowed to give blood.

More trivia for Bruce Almighty

Question: In the film they find Jimmy Hoffa's body, but who is he? I've never heard of him.

Answer: Hoffa was the powerful and controversial leader of the Teamsters Union from 1957 to 1971. Often alleged to have ties to organized crime, Hoffa was convicted of fraud and jury tampering in 1964 and served four years in prison before his sentence was commuted by President Nixon. In 1975, while trying to regain power in the union, Hoffa disappeared from Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. He was widely assumed to have been killed by the Mafia. His body was never found, and in 1983 he was declared legally dead. Many movies joke of this, because to this day, his body has not been recovered.
