* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: The film got a lot of slack from parents who ignored the PG-13/12 rating and took their kids to see it, because of all the swearing (Plenty of fucks and shits) and sexual content (Bruce blows up a girl's skirt, makes his girlfriend have spontaneous orgasms, and makes her boobs bigger). Apparently because it's a movie about God it should be child-friendly.

* FiveFiveFive: Averted in the initial theatrical release, but played straight for the home versions because, as explained in the commentary, the phone number wasn't owned by the studio and [[http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2003/05/27/entertainment/main555630.shtml?tag=untagged people who owned the same number across the U.S. were getting plagued with phone calls]].

* ThreatBackfire: When God finally convinces Bruce that he is talking to God (by suddenly making two extra fingers appear on his right hand), Bruce warns him to stay back, saying he will try to fight if provoked. God throws it right back at him by saying that Bruce hasn't won a fight since Grade 5, and even that was only won because he was fighting a girl.

* {{Orgasmatron}}: When Bruce is done testing his powers, he rushes home to Grace, and uses his powers to bring her to orgasmic bliss without even being in the same room as her.

* SuspiciouslyAproposMusic: Bruce conveniently seems to have a CD which exactly describes his situation, and it even (Perhaps through divine power) only plays the most relevant lines:
** "Make love to you right now, that's all I want to do": Referencing the fact that Bruce is preparing to make love to Grace.
** "'Cause I've found what the world is searching for": Bruce has literally found God, as well as the path to happiness (Being omnipotent).
** "For someone just like you, who makes me feel the way you do": Bruce is completely in love with Grace.
** "Never never gonna give you up, I'm never never gonna stop. About the way I feel about you": Bruce never gives up trying to get Grace back when she leaves him.
** "Girl I just can't live without you": When Grace leaves Bruce, he is killed while at the height of his despair.

* ObscuredSpecialEffects: Most of the conjuration (Coffee summoning) and transformation (Changing clothes, transforming his car and enlarging his girlfriend's boobs) takes place off-screen, presumably to avoid the infinite power of God looking like bad CGI.
