Bruce Almighty

Revealing mistake: In the scene with the accident, the car already has bumper damage just before it hits the pole. (00:21:00)

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)

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)

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)


Revealing mistake: When Bruce is calling the pager number, if you look closely, the phone is a fake or not working, because when he is dialing, the phone is suppose to be backlit and is not. Plus, there is a sticker on the phone LCD which is supposed to look like he dialed the number. The numbers are on there before he is finished dialing and the sound doesn't match his finger movements.

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)

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.
