Evan Almighty

9 Ratings: 2.1
Comedy movie directed by Tom Shadyac

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 … see full wiki

Not a great movie but merely an 'ok' one. But the message it has is something we all need to be reminded of from time to time.      How does one change the world?   One ARK- One Act of Random Kindness...at a time.

I'm not one for blasphemy, but if someone is going to play the creator of the heavens and earth Morgan Freeman is the best choice. In the sequel to the 2003 hit Bruce Almighty we are reunited with local newsman Evan Baxter (Steve Carell) in his new role as congressman. In his political campaign he promises to change the world and the rest of the movie is set in motion. Starting with the strange appearance of the number 614. Of course this is to reference the Book of Genesis 6:14 in which God instructs …

It's hard enough being a rookie congressman with a campaign promise to change the world, but when God himself shows up before you even settle in and commands you to build a really big boat in the middle of a Virginia housing development; well that takes it to a whole new level.     Like George Burns before him, Morgan Freeman has a hard time convincing his chosen one to do as he's told, and it takes a boat load of divine intervention to make Congressman Baxter (Steve Carrell) …

I enjoyed "Bruce Almighty" when it was released a few years back. I was hesitant to watch its sequel, "Evan Almighty," for a number of reasons. Firstly, Evan Baxter (Steve Carell) was technically a villain in the first film. Secondly, I wasn't too sure about the PG rating for the film, thinking that a toned-down sequel would lose some of the schtick of the first film. Also, I found it hard to swallow the idea of a modern-day "Noah's Ark" story. I was quite surprised with the end result, however. …

Tom Shadyac, the director of this movie has brought us some excellent comedy movies in the past both as producer and director. Ace Ventura Pet Detective, Nutty Professor 1 & 2, Liar Liar plus others are all great movies, even the prequel to this Bruce Almighty was a mildly amusing and heart breaking movie. Evan Almighty was on the other end of the comedy spectrum when compared to his other triumphs. Steve Carell of The Office fame has fast become one of the most recognisable names in comic acting …

Ever since Morgan Freeman did the booming voice of The Evening Star in a short skit on `The Electric Company,' it has been clear to me that he could easily play God. Also, given the impressive comedic resume of Steve Carrell, it is a no-brainer that he would be Jim Carrey's replacement in the sequel, `Evan Almighty'. While Carrell is certainly versatile, his performance makes me suspicious of two possible developments: Something went wrong with Carrey's contract or the makers went out of their way …

Bruce Almighty surprised me with it's poignancy. Evan didn't quite reach that surrendered depth, but contained a more family friendly storyline which charmed me.     Though done many times before, the classic sweetness of those tearjerker family movies wherein the busy, distant father finds out what really matters in life is still worth visiting.     Steve Carrel plays Evan, a newscaster turned politician, who in a simple prayer echoes his goal to make a difference. …
