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.
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 isnt 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 Carells 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 youd expect, to hold two of each species on the planet. Naturally, all the people around Evan think hes gone mad, and this proves a healthy comedy mine thats well exploited.
Evan Almighty isnt without a few problems, though. The focus of the film isnt always tight enough on generating the laughs, and Carell is surprisingly under-used. Hes 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 its not without rewatch value. Its 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.

'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 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.
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.Read more ›
