Evan Almighty is a comedy for all ages that "you don't want to miss" (Kim Griffis, NBC-TV)! Everyone's favorite funnyman Steve Carell is at his hilarious best as junior congressman, Evan Baxter, whose wish to "change the world" is heard by none other than God (Academy Award® winner Morgan Freeman). When God appears with the perplexing request to build an ark, Evan is sure he is losing it. But soon mysterious deliveries of wood and tools are being dropped on his doorstep, animals of every shape and size are flocking to him two by two, and his self-absorbed life goes from overnight success to almighty mess! It's a great time for everyone!

Carell's morality tale much milder than Carrey's.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this sequel to Bruce Almighty is a broader, milder comedy than the original, and it aims to appeal to the whole family (and given the frequent TV ads, chances are even young kids have heard of it). The good news is that even though it's not particularly good, it is pretty safe -- there's no violence, drinking, or sex, and virtually no bad language ("pissed" and "jackass" are as strong as it gets). It's worth noting that the plot revolves around Evan talking directly to God and then obeying his command; there are several biblical references, but no proselytizing.
