    Steve Carell rides the wave of 40-Year-Old Virgin stardom (and a biblical flood) in this bizarre, effects-heavy comedy about a modern-day Noah's ark. The film is nominally a sequel to Bruce Almighty, although it bears little relation to the 2003 Jim Carrey hit--except for the divine intervention of Morgan Freeman, who returns in his role as God. Even Carell's character is much altered from his supporting part in the first film; here, Evan Baxter says goodbye to the news-anchoring business in favor of his job as a naive freshman congressman. When God orders him to build an ark and prepare for an impending inundation, Evan sheepishly takes on the task (it's hard to turn down the job when your hair and beard grow to Old Testament lengths and God wants you to walk around in sackcloth).

    Carell gets to do silly dances and mix it up with a variety of animals (real and computer-generated), all of which reminds us of the film's family-friendly tone and the PG rating. The kid stuff works just fine, although the religio-environmental message-mongering makes this a most curious kind of Hollywood blockbuster. When the flood comes, the film shifts into a mammoth-sized CGI extravaganza, recalling the era of overstuffed techno-comedies such as 1941 and Howard the Duck (and not to be nit-picky, but the tsunami-like disaster that overtakes Washington, D.C., looks as though it would snuff out the lives of quite a few citizens). Capable comic support comes from John Michael Higgins, Wanda Sykes, and Jonah Hill, with John Goodman and Lauren Graham filling out stock roles of fatcat politico and loyal wife, respectively. Carell is even better at being sincere than being funny, a talent that comes in handy here and bodes well for his future versatility. --Robert Horton

    Product Description

    Evan Almighty is a comedy for all ages that "you don't want to miss" (Kim Griffis, NBC-TV)! Everyone's favorite funnyman Steve Carell is at his hilarious best as junior congressman Evan Baxter, whose wish to "change the world" is heard by none other than God (Academy Award winner Morgan Freeman). When God appears with the perplexing request to build an ark, Evan is sure he is losing it. But soon mysterious deliveries of wood and tools are being dropped on his doorstep, animals of every shape and size are flocking to him two by two, and his self-absorbed life goes from overnight success to almighty mess! It's a great time for everyone!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Evan Almighty is Mighty Entertaining June 23, 2007
    The review I read in the USA Today suggested that this movie was a stinker. But I think the critics dropped the ball. This was a fun movie, and a great choice for the whole family. Evan Baxter is the former Buffalo news anchor who has just been elected to Congress with the lofty campaign slogan "Change the World."

    This inspires God (played by Morgan Freeman) to speak to Evan about building an ark. God is angry that the beautiful Appalachian mountain vistas he has created are being destroyed by those desiring to create huge residential areas. He is upset with those who want to destroy the natural beauty of the world.

    Animals start following Baxter around two by two, and (like in the Tim Allen flick "The Santa Clause") he begins to look like his predecesor (Noah).

    Evan becomes alienated from his congressional colleagues and from his family, but by this point in the film, he is convinced that he is doing the work of the Lord.

    As the plot unfolded, I started wondering, "Were the animals really necessary to the storyline, since the judgment of God was only falling on one region of the world rather than the entire planet?" But my wife told me that having the animals come to Evan from around the world demonstrated to the people that Evan wasn't crazy, and that this truly was a move of God.

    Secondly, having the animals come to Evan ties this in neatly with the Noah story from Genesis 6.

    The movie is not what I would call laugh out loud funny, but there are plenty of cute and heartwarming moments. The message of the film seems to be that we can change the world with one random act of kindness at a time. Both the message and the movie are winners in my book. Recommended.

    5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT movie on Courage, Faith, and Hope June 26, 2007
    Verified Purchase
    This is a GREAT movie inspite of the reviews given to it by certain critics. (especially critics who happened to compete with it's opening debute). This movie is NOT about a man building an ark, although that appears to be on the surface. It is about a man who is forced into circumstances which seem to be unalterable, taking him further away from his own personal aims in life only to find himself again. He must surrender his own life's plans for plans that appear completely incongruent to his own by Divine interference. He is pushed to the edge of his sanity while his stable and well grounded wife watches him hopelessly slip away. Ultimately, when his own strategies fail, he surrenders to his divine mission and plunges into his project whole heartedly at the cost of his job, family, and his reputation. Steve Carell plays the role so beautifully, full of laughs and humor, drama and tears. And Morgan Freeman, who plays God, is so wonderfully warm and true, he touches the hearts of all. And how many times in our real lives are we seemingly pulled off course, away from our goals, only to arrive at the point where we wanted to be - made stronger, wiser, and more experienced than if we made a straight line towards our target? (Are the critics so dumb that they cannot see beyond the superficial appearance of this movie? What planet are they from?)
    The movie doesn't preach so much as to teach us the importance of our courage, commitment, faith, and love. The movie reveals a core of values and give courage to notice our opportunities to make some difference in life while having the faith to do it when nothing around seems to support us. People who think this movie is about the remake of Noah's ark missed the premise entirely.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Evan Unlikely October 16, 2007
    Format:DVD
    "The idea has recently arisen," Chesterton wrote, "that if one is moral one cannot be melodramatic." The "recently" he refers to is about 100 years ago, so let me slightly update his phrase to post- modern TV and film. "The idea has recently arisen that if one makes a film for the dreaded "F" genre (family), one cannot be melodramatic. Even Almighty sends that idea packing.

    It's not what's in this movie that makes it so good, it's what's left out. No overuse of computerized camera, which makes up the bulk of TV shows like Grays Anatomy, not to mention every movie since the Matrix. From the little I've seen of The Office, I'd say the writing in EA is, if anything better. Why? It's restrained. All art, to quote Chesterton again, is about limits. this genre starts out with the ground rules: you can't say certain things, can't do certain things, can't show certain things. Get anyone creative in there and that's the recipe for great films and TV, not the Fox fomula of everything always edgier, which shows they've learned nothing from not only Chesterton but also Marshall McLuhan (and it's also why despite my love of the medium of TV, I've cut the cable.

    Guess what? You don't have to make a one joke movie and tack on an overdone moral on the end like every F genre film from Ferris Beuller to Home Alone. You can actually have some smarts in a film, some-- get ready- metaphysics-- and not leave your brain on the cutting room floor. Now compare this to Dogma. That entire movie could be thrown away except for the spectacular, well- acted, gripping final scene. You can't do that with Evan Almighty. With a subtle, restrained film, you need every frame.
