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!
Too heavy on the religion and too light on the laughs. Not good, but not terrible.
Rated PG (MPAA)
