Evan Almighty

A comedy of biblical proportions.


Evan Almighty
The followup to Bruce Almighty, but without Bruce. Instead, the newsreader has cut a new career for himself in politics, and moves to a new city. One day, God appears to him to warn him of an impending flood, and orders him to build an ark. This naturally causes considerable upheaval in his life, especially when he sprouts a magical beard and starts dressing like Noah. The film is clearly taking a dig at President Bush's alleged hotline to God, but failed to impress the critics.

94 minutes.
Parental Guidance.

5
iAfrica.com
Rebekah Kendal quote iconAn inoffensive, big-budget family comedy, complete with the obligatory poop jokes, visual gags, mildly diverting puns and feel-good messages.

The Citizen
Peter Feldman quote iconThe premise is stupid, the laughs are silly and the morality lesson is annoying.

Sunday Times

Tiisetso Tlelima quote iconIn this so-called family comedy, Carell attempts without much success to make the audience laugh at strange faces and silly little dances.

Box Office
Chad Greene quote iconJust say Noah: God stages a not-so-divine intervention.
5
eye Weekly
Adam Nayman quote iconPlodding, predictable and sitcom-broad, it's a numbing populist cocktail of slapstick, sentimentality and special effects that, in failing to acknowledge the true tenor of these A.D. (After Dubya) times, feels distressingly au courant.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconNot funny enough, clever enough, or spectacular enough.
10
Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconIt's too lame to be mighty, except in budget that is.
5
ScreenIt
quote iconNot enough laughs or even chuckles, and too much reliance on special effects and clearly not enough on the plot.
