Bruce Almighty

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. 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.

Plot hole: God tells Bruce he can't mess with free will. However, he does when he makes Evan say lots of crazy stuff on TV.

Suggested correction: He doesn't change Evan's mind such to make him want to say the gargled messages, he's merely controlling Evan's mouth as opposed to changing his thoughts. His will remains unchanged. On the other hand, forcing Grace to love him would be different than simply forcing her to utter the phrase "I love you" without her meaning it.

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.

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

Chosen 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.

Question: What does it mean when Bruce is live from the Maid of the Mist and one of the audio guys says "We've got a Walt Disney"?

xx:xx:xx

Chosen answer: There is an urban myth that Walt Disney froze himself so he return unfrozen in the future. At the Maid of the Mist, Bruce is frozen from shock. If you listen to another audio guy after the first one says we got a Walt Disney, he says he is frozen solid, telling what it means to have a Walt Disney.

Question: Can anyone name all (or almost all) of the Biblical references in this movie?

Josh Appelbaum

Chosen answer: There is the tomato soup reference at the diner which is referring to God parting the Red Sea for Moses. Then at the party we see Bruce leaning on the golden calf which is another reference to the Bible's 10 Commandments where it says that "thou shalt not worship any false idols." Meaning that only the faithful must worship God and no false entities. Again at the party Bruce is coming upstairs with a pitcher of water and a glass of wine which is a reference to Jesus turning water into wine at a social function. When God and Bruce meet out on the water this is a reference to Jesus walking on water and the search engine Bruce uses on his computer Yahweh, is also another name for God.
