God Has a Grand Design...Guess Who Has to Build It?
Funnyman steve carell is at his hilarious best when his simple wish to change the world turns into a baffling request from god (morgan freeman) and turns his seemingly perfect life upside down.

"Carell and Freeman are great together and Wanda Sykes' acerbic humor is perfect for her role as Evan's perplexed assistant.  Jack Mathews, New York Daily News
"Laugh-out-loud funny!  Kim Griffis, NBC-TV
"...a mild, sporadically funny comedy in an oversized sentimental frame.  Liam Lacey, The Globe and Mail

Editor's Note
In this sequel to BRUCE ALMIGHTY, newscaster Evan Baxter (Steve Carrell, THE 40 YEAR OLD VIRGIN) has traded in the news desk for a post in Washington as a congressman. Though his campaign was based on the idea of changing the world, Evan drives a gas-guzzling SUV and spends more time trimming his nose hair than with his three sons. When he has a strange encounter with God (Oscar winner Morgan Freeman, reprising his role from the first film), God tells him to build an ark, just as Noah did thousands of years ago. Though Evan is skeptical, he finally accepts the task after being hounded by dozens of animals that follow him, two by two. By obeying God, Evan risks his family, career, and sanity--but will a flood actually come and prove him right?

Though BRUCE ALMIGHTY boasted an edgier PG-13 rating, EVAN ALMIGHTY is a pure family affair. Its predecessor featured some sexual humor, but this is a squeaky clean film that kids and parents can enjoy equally. With hundreds of animals, poop jokes are inevitable, and they're worthy of a chuckle or two. With his roles in THE 40 YEAR OLD VIRGIN and THE OFFICE, Carrell has capitalized on playing awkward characters. The (over)confident Evan is quite a change, and it's interesting to see Carrell stretch his comedic muscle. Though EVAN ALMIGHTY also features the talents of Lauren Graham (GILMORE GIRLS) and Coen Brothers favorite John Goodman, the funniest lines and delivery come from Wanda Sykes (THE NEW ADVENTURES OF OLD CHRISTINE) and Jonah Hill (KNOCKED UP) as members of Evan's staff. Most of the film's jokes garner giggles, but the lines from this pair get guffaws.

Expert Review Evan Almighty - DVD Review
By: Chris Cabin filmcritic.com DVD Reviews
Published on: 9/28/2007 8:42 PM
In hindsight, Bruce Almighty was the death knell for the Jim Carrey we know and love. This isn't completely a bad thing: Running away from manic comedy allowed Carrey to do the best acting of his career in Michel Gondry's Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. It also allowed for The Number 23. You win some, and you really, really lose some. But that wacky spazz with the ability to manipulate his body like it was made of laffy-taffy was seen hardening in Bruce Almighty, his artful physical comedy becoming a frantic centerpiece to otherwise inept material. It seems strange that Bruce was Carrey's moment of decay while the film's sequel, Evan Almighty, welcomes the great Steve Carell into the annals of mainstream comedic stardom....read the full review
Expert Review Evan Almighty - DVD Review
By: Jarad I. Wilk Cinema Blend DVD Reviews

Evan Almighty is coined as a film for all ages. It's a 96 minute poop joke. The only people that can tolerate 96 minutes worth of poop jokes, and call it friendly fun, are children, because they don't know any better. Fine, the word poop sounds funny, but I don't need a movie filled with sophomoric attempts at doodie humor. Someone, whether it is screenwriter Steve Oedekerk or director Tom Shadyac, needs to seek help because there is a rather unhealthy obsession with poop displayed in Evan Almighty. ...read the full review

DVD Talk 7 of 10
The gift of Carell's performance is that you believe he believes; even surrounded by a plethora of trained animals and subjected to a torrent of Evan-go-boom physical gags, Carell stays crisply focused and determined. He sells the idea that his character is capable of limitless building capability and is genuinely fearful of God's wrath. He's terrific here...Now I could've done without the countless animal feces gags, the genital-assault humor, and Shadyac's atrocious ear for "inspirational" music (does the world really need a country cover of "Revolution?"), but I did enjoy this big, dumb family film in a big, dumb way. I was even more impressed how "Evan" turns temporarily into an Irwin Allen disaster film in the final act...As a crowd-pleasing, undemanding matinee diversion, "Evan Almighty" is a far more satisfying production than "Bruce," and that, to me, is a great thing. Even if the nonsense gets under your skin from the first frame, it's hard to ignore that Carell is a natural at this leading man business. - Brian Orndorf

The central problem with Evan Almighty is that the filmmakers pack too much plot into what should be a relatively lightweight comedy. This results in too much exposition and too few laughs. Instead of developing a shell of a plot that allows star Steve Carell to take control with his low-key charisma and natural humor, it saddles him with a narrative so preposterous that not even he can vault the barrier. Evan Almighty is amusing in pieces but, taken as a whole, it offers little, and the morality lesson is galling...It's not funny enough, clever enough, or spectacular enough. At best, it's made-for-TV fare masquerading as something more impressive to bilk movie-goers out of hard-earned money. Despite his considerable screen time, Steve Carell's abilities are criminally underused, ending a string of successes that have included The 40 Year-Old Virgin, Little Miss Sunshine, and TV's The Office. Evan Almighty will probably be seen as test of Carell's drawing power. Considering the movie's quality, that's unfortunate. - James Berardinelli
