Trivia: Bruce Almighty

  • Actor Allusion: Bruce turns into Clint Eastwood at one point. Although prosthetics were used in this instance, "Clint Eastwood" was a part of Carrey's facial impersonations routine in his stand-up days.
    • After Bruce and God finish cleaning the floor together in the warehouse, God says "All-lll-righty then" - a little subdued, but a definite reference to Ace Ventura.
      • Its also the same monkey from Ace Ventura II that comes out of that guys ass.
  • Banned in China: Banned in Egypt and Malaysia for showing God in human form. The ban in Malaysia was eventually lifted.
  • Bowdlerised: A pretty unfair - not to mention baffling - example in the basic-cable edited version. The girl's dress flying up on the street is abruptly cut out, but all the jokes about the dog peeing (and eventually learning to use the toilet) were left in, as was the line "little anal-dwelling butt monkey." Are we really to believe that a woman's thighs are dirtier than urine or monkey-rape?
  • Deleted Role: The original script had the character of Bobby, who worked at the news station, selling snacks. He annoyed Bruce, who then proceeded to damn him, causing him to become demoniacally-possessed. Fortunately, Bruce eventually reversed it.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!:
  • Hey, It's That Place!: Universal Studio's Courthouse Square is used throughout this movie — it's been in dozens of productions, but it is most famous for Back to the Future.

  • What Could Have Been: The original script contains a lot more scenes that didn't make it into the final movie. These include: Bruce answering lots of prayers individually (including God showing him the consequences), Grace's breasts growing twice more (and going back to normal after a prayer), Bruce "pleasuring" Susan right before they go on air, a lot more stories covered during the "A Little less Conversation" montage, such as Bruce discovering Bigfoot, and getting pandas to mate by making them insatiably horny, people confessing their sins to Bruce, and an entire new character called "Bobby", who works at Channel 7, and is damned by Bruce, causing him to become possessed by a demon.
