Story


Steve Carell ("The 40-Year-Old Virgin"), reprising his role as the polished, preening newscaster Evan Baxter of "Bruce Almighty," is the next one anointed by God to accomplish a holy mission in the hilarious new comedy "Evan Almighty". Blockbuster comedy director Tom Shadyac ("The Nutty Professor," "Liar Liar," "Bruce Almighty") returns behind the camera for this next episode of divine intervention. This time, however, his cast grows two-by-two.

Newly elected to Congress, Evan leaves Buffalo behind and shepherds his family to suburban northern Virginia. Once there, his life gets turned upside-down when God (Morgan Freeman) appears and mysteriously commands him to build an ark. But his befuddled family just can't decide whether Evan is having an extraordinary mid-life crisis or is truly onto something of Biblical proportions...

by David Mercier [FIlm Judge]
“..Evan Almighty is amusing in pieces but, taken as a whole, it offers little..”
