Evan Almighty (Steve Oedekerk, Joel Cohen, Alec Sokolow, Steve Koren and Mark O'Keefe)

Evan Almighty is a comedy for all ages, directed by Tom Shadyac, with Steve Carell as Congressman Evan Baxter, whose wish to change the world is heard by none other than God himself. When God makes a surprise visit and leaves him with the task of building an ark, Evan begins to wonder if he is going crazy. With the fast arrival of wood and tools by the Baxters' home, along with animals of all shapes and sizes following him in pairs, the mighty successful life of Evan becomes an almighty mess!

Starring: Steve Carell, Morgan Freeman, Lauren Graham, John Goodman, John Michael Higgins, Jimmy Bennett, Wanda Sykes

What I liked about this film: First of all, I loved seeing all the greatest actors and comedians together. There were also some great punch lines, Wanda Sykes has the funniest one when at the end she turns to the llama, after it has spit: "If that comes out your front, I don't wanna know what comes out of your back".
But above all, this is a story about family values and changing the world, which can be done through "one random act of kindness at a time".

What I disliked about this film: If you have seen Bruce Almight, starring Jim Carrey (which I have and absolutely loved) this will seem like a poor sequel, with the great Morgan Freeman still playing God, but the story is not as good and some jokes are stupid. It becomes a little tiring.
