This ties into politics – trust me.

I’ve just seen Evan Almighty, the “sequel” to Bruce Almighty. Go see this movie! It’s more family oriented than the first one but still has a ton of laughs for kids and adults.

Steve Carell returns as Evan Baxter and this time he has been elected to Congress. As he is just settling in with his political responsibilities, Evan is visited by our favorite man from above: Morgan Freeman – I mean…God. Along with his wife Joan (get it? Joan of Arc?) and his three sons, Evan must follow God’s command to build an ark.

Sounds like a very simple plot – and it is; however, there are some great characters in the film that really add to the story. The ark is incredible and it amazing to see REAL animals on Capitol Hill. Lauren Graham, Molly Shannon, John Goodman, and Wanda Sykes co-star.

Although I think it would have been hilarious for Jim Carrey to make an appearance as one of the reporters, Evan Almighty definitely lives up to the hype.

  1. yeah, I just saw this! very good movie!!

  2. you can say that morgan freeman is one of the most versatile actors that we have today “”
