A crane was blown over by strong winds during shooting. It was reported at the time that Jennifer Aniston, who was standing with her back to the crane, didn't see it toppling towards her but Jim Carrey pushed her out of the way in time to avert a serious accident. Jim Carrey subsequently played down the extent of the peril, and said that the stories were exaggerated. Jennifer Aniston has since denied that she was even there. See more »

If you want a serious laugh pain, watch this movie, and the things Bruce inflicts on his fellow newscaster. The deleted scenes are priceless. I don't know why they didn't include them in the original movie. It can't be because of time, since the movie is only 101 minutes long. Morgan Freeman is a brilliant actor, who has been overlooked for too long. Jim Carrey needs meds!
