Product Description

Product Description

Comedy sequel to 'Bruce Almighty' brings another bout of divine intervention. When ex-newscaster Evan Baxter (Steve Carell) is elected to congress, he relocates his family to northern Virginia and prepares for the good life. But his new life is turned upside down when God (Morgan Freeman) tells him that a flood of biblical proportions is on the way, and that he has to build an ark, Noah style. At first sceptical, Evan gradually accepts his appointed task, drawing media attention with his rapidly changing appearance. With a colossal structure taking shape in the back yard, Evan's family don't know whether he's just having a mid-life crisis, or whether it truly is a case of sink or swim.

From Amazon.co.uk

Giving Steve Carell a long-overdue leading role in a mainstream Hollywood comedy, Evan Almighty is the sequel to the huge Jim Carrey hit Bruce Almighty. And while Carrey isn’t on the cast list this time round, director Tom Shadyac and Morgan Freeman are among the many returnees.

The focus of Evan Almighty switches to Carell’s Evan Baxter, last seen as a newsreader but now an elected official, who is chosen by God (Freeman) to build a new ark. And this ark needs, as you’d expect, to hold two of each species on the planet. Naturally, all the people around Evan think he’s gone mad, and this proves a healthy comedy mine that’s well exploited.

Evan Almighty isn’t without a few problems, though. The focus of the film isn’t always tight enough on generating the laughs, and Carell is surprisingly under-used. He’s on form when the material allows him to shine, but its often (admittedly impressive) special effects that end up taking centre stage, an odd road to choose for a comedy.

That said, Evan Almighty is still an enjoyable family comedy, and it’s not without rewatch value. It’s a fun little movie, and one that deserves extra credit for promoting Carell to top billing--that's a move long overdue. --Jon Foster --This text refers to the DVD edition.

Enjoyed this film more than I'd expected (low expectations due to the negative reviews on its initial cinema release). Steve Carell is terrific!Main thing I wanted to add to what you can already read in other amazon reviews is to mention how interesting I found the DVD extras. It was fascinating to see how they filmed with so many highly trained animals, how they built a full-sized version of the ark, how they combined the use of CGI with the live action, particularly for the flood scenes at the end (and to prevent predators gulping down prey animals!) and - above all- how the film makers (including a director with a really strong drive and vision) attempted 'green' film status. This included planting 2,000 trees to balance their carbon footprint, donating the reuseable timber from the sets (especially the huge ark) to a home-building charity (along with the money generated by melting down and selling the steel frames used under the wood laminate for parts of the ark). It makes sense doesn't it? As someone mentioned in the mini-doc, making a set with a view to its future disassembly for reclamation and re-use is very different from making one designed just for demolition. The director even bought bicycles for members of the cast and crew who wanted one (I think he was surprised how many took up his offer - 400!) The bikes were used during the film shoot - to reduce car use for short journeys. Now I know some of this will seem suspect - part of the promotional budget you could say, but I'd never come across any such attempt in the film industry before.

This is a lot funnier than many critic's suggested in my view..
'Evan' (Steve Carell) meets 'God' ( played by 'Morgan Freeman' as in 'Bruce' )
'God' instructs 'Evan' to build an 'Arc' also to collect as many different animals as possible to save them from the 'flood' ?
'Evan' has to learn new skills, he also has to take a lot of ridicule from people as he builds the 'Arc'
The film has many funny moments, if you've not seen it before maybe you'll take advantage of the price, the kids will play this over and over.
I think i enjoyed the comedy situations rather more than the 'Bruce Almighty' film. (however i think the sequence where 'Bruce' control's his rivals voice while on 'air' was in my opinion one of the funniest moments i'd seen on screen for years)
Well worth a spin......Family Friendly.

I was reluctant to watch this file as I thought that it might be similar to Bruce Almighty - fortunately my fears were quickly laid to rest. I found this film to be a lovely, gentle comedy and really great entertainment on a wet Sunday afternoon. What I loved about it was the script's complete awareness of the absurdity of the situation - a US politician (Steve Carell) told by God (Morgan Freeman)to build an ark, well in land and with no rain in sight - I winced with embarrassment for him more than once as the story unfolded, and yet at the same time I chuckled into my cocoa.
I don't think this proports to be an amazing film, and the ending is fairly predictable right from the start, but it is a happy, feel-good film and worth watching. I heartily recommend it.

Excellent, light hearted film that also illustrates some important truths about God's loving wisdom and providence. Useful for church groups to use

News anchor Evan Baxter (Steve Carell) has just been elected to Congress. Packing up his wife Joan (Lauren Graham) and three kids, they move to a valley in Virginia. They've got a new car and a just built giant house. Life is good.

Things seem to be going well for the freshman Congressman at work, too. Evan has a nice, big office, and Congressman Long (John Goodman) is asking him to be a junior sponsor on a new bill. This could be just the ticket he needs to launch his political career and fulfill his campaign promise to change the world.

But then weird things start to happen. A box of building supplies appears on their doorstep. The next morning, lumber is delivered. And everywhere Evan goes the numbers 614 keep appearing.

Then God (Morgan Freeman) appears to Evan and tells him to build an ark. If anyone asks why, he's to tell them that a flood is coming. Never mind that the city is in the middle of a huge drought. Can God get Evan's attention? Will Evan obey?

It took me a while to give BRUCE ALMIGHTY a chance, and when I did, I discovered a comedy I really enjoyed. So I had to give this one a try. While the first is aimed at adults, this is more of a family comedy. The worse thing we get is some crude humor, but you may want to preview it before you show it to them. And kids would definitely love watching the animal antics.

The movie is funny. While not wall to wall laughs, I laughed plenty and had a smile on my face at the end. It worked because everything was believable, or as believable as it could be giving the situation. I identified with Evan's reactions to God's appearances. And of course a giant ark would create a media circus. Yet the movie is heartwarming.
