Evan Almighty is the 2007 stand alone sequel to the movie Bruce Almighty that was made in 2003. In this sequel, Evan Baxter (played by Steve Carell) is a Washington congressman who after a visit from God, starts to embody the story of Noah and his ark. Barely passing at mildly amusing, Evan Almighty is a movie that lacks purpose. The CGI is admittedly bad, and the same can be said for Carell's performance. The humour comes off as corny and forced, only being met with silent air. The type of movie that you forget the next day, would not recommend. 1 Star

For the first half hour, Evan Almighty is very slow,unfunny and had lots of unnecessary crude humor. When he started to build the ark, and the animals came, things really picked up. It was amazing how they made the ark scenes look so realistic, and it was fun to watch the hundreds of animals that were used. Not the greatest movie and not even one of the best, but animal lovers will probably enjoy it.

This movie is hysterical. Steve Carrel is one of my favourite actors of all time (next to Michael Cera). He's so funny in this movie. I also liked Morgan Freeman as God. Yeah, this movie was under-rated. I think that it is way better than Bruce Almighty. This is definitely worth seeing.

Morgan Freeman as God: I give to you a new commandment: Thou shalt do the dance!"
