EVAN ALMIGHTY



PG for mild rude humor and some peril. On blu-ray 8/07. Ok for kids 8+.

This 2007 follow-up to Bruce Almighty stars Steve Carell as Evan Baxter, a Buffalo newsman who's elected to Congress with the slogan, "Change the world." He moves his family into a fab Virginia suburb and himself into a new office at the Capitol. But there's a catch: he's tapped by powerful Congressman Long (John Goodman) to co-sponsor a bill allowing development in national parks. In steps God (Morgan Freeman – who else?!), who gently commands Evan to build an ark. Yes, an ark. Evan can't believe it either, even as tools and wood start arriving in his yard, followed by pairs of animals. Things spiral from there, as Evan's beard and hair grow wildly out of control, his wife (Lauren Graham) and kids leave him, reporters gather, and a drought grips Washington. Is Evan crazy or just faithful? Find out in this utterly charming movie.
