Added DiffLines:
* 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.

* IAmNotShazam: Bruce's surname is Nolan. "Bruce Almighty" is the title he gives himself.

* 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.

* DestructoNookie: The morning after Bruce's "heavenly" sex with Grace, we cut to him laid in bed, with mattress cover on the floor, the mattress itself dislodged, the pillows stuffed down the back, and the duvet sloppily placed to cover Bruce's groin.

Added DiffLines:
* ModestyBedsheet: After a night of pleasurable pleasure with his girlfriend, Bruce wakes up to find the bed in a shambles, but the duvet is still pulled up just enough to cover Bruce up to his waist. Gets even more obvious when he sits up, with his legs being exposed, and only his waist and groin covered.

** [[InvokedTrope Invoked directly]] by Bruce's reflection after he scoffs, "If that was ''God'', then I'm ClintEastwood!" --> '''Clint-esque reflection:''' Be careful what you wish for...[[Film/DirtyHarry punk]].

Corrected some bad formatting and repetition
-->'''God''': ''[quoting Bruce]'' "The gloves are off, God!" "God has taken my bird and my bush!" "God is a mean kid with a magnifying glass!" * SmiteMeOMightySmiter! Now, I'm not much for blaspheming, but that last one made me laugh.

** The scene where Bruce pulls the moon down is very similar to a scene in It's A Wonderful Life where Jimmy Stewart offers to lasso the moon to make his girl happy. Guess which old film just happens to be on the TV later on in movie.

** This trope was also illustrated by a line used in one of the trailers: "This summer, the guy next door gets to become the Man Upstairs."

* TheyPlottedAPerfectlyGoodWaste: As noted by a lot of the other entries on this page, Bruce's life isn't ''quite'' bad enough to warrant his perception of God as a mean kid frying ants with a magnifying glass, so some of the audience lost sympathy for Bruce. This is intentional; a key theme of the movie is that Bruce doesn't appreciate the blessings he does have, so he was ''supposed'' to come off to the audience like his responses to his problems were disproportionate to the actual scale of those problems.
