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