Movie Review – Evan Almighty

Rating – B

In director Tom Shadyac’s raucous follow-up to the 2003 comedy Bruce Almighty (also helmed by Shadyac), God (Morgan Freeman) summons narcissistic newscaster turned congressman Evan Baxter (Steve Carell) to build an enormous ark in preparation for a devastating flood. Unfortunately, Evan’s perplexed family interprets his latest hobby as a midlife crisis gone wrong rather than as a divine assignment from the man upstairs.

Typical Steve Carrell movie. Not as over the top as “40-Year Virgin”.
