Review 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.

Review 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.

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