    It's Carell who projects the movie's only sense of mischief. But it's too little and too late. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    A limp, slow-moving and desperately unfunny comedy. show more

    It's an almighty, humorless bore. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    This is movie-making by and for dummies, a sappy little bible story, blissed out on its own ineptitude. show more

    Ultimately, Evan Almighty is too sappy, too sanctimonious. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    Carell and Freeman are great together and Wanda Sykes' acerbic humor is perfect for her role as Evan's perplexed assistant. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    Carell is getting quite good as these everyman characters but lacks the audacity of, say, a Carrey or a Robin Williams. He is making comedy out of dullness. show more

    Evan Almighty may not be enough to make you shout ''Hallelujah,'' but it's not the cinematic equivalent of a plague, either. show more

    Liam Lacey The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    Though far from a disaster of Biblical proportions, Evan Almighty is a mild, sporadically funny comedy in an oversized sentimental frame. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    Carell's frantic mugging as a modern-day Noah barely keeps Evan Almighty afloat. show more

    See Evan Almighty, it spreads a GREAT message! God strength like no other and this movie showed it! The critics are stupid, don't listen to them! This movie is inspiring and will change you. So become closer with the Lord. Go see this movie, and learn!

    Let me simply say this....I HAD FUN watching this movie! I laughed a lot, cried a bit (thinking of how creative and cool God really is), and left the theater with the feeling of pure delight. Now that felt good!

    My husband and I loved this movie! We were going to see another movie, and it was sold out. My husband just picked this movie, this was a movie we were supposed to see! The story line, the actors and the animals were great, it teaches you to be kind to everyone. This was a wonderful, inspirational movie.

    42 out of 100 critic's rating? I saw this movie with my 13 yr old daughter and I have to admit I went reluctantly to see this movie. The only people who won't enjoy it are people who shy away from either God, morals, Bible stories or just don't like to laugh. The people who were a part of our audience evidently felt the same way we did about this entertaining flick. Reaction to MANY scenes throughout the showing varied from mild giggles to loud gaffawing. It even had a simple message that anyone SHOULD be able to relate to. My advice is just as simple: GO SEE IT!!!

    I really liked this movie ! Please don't take the critics' comments too seriously.It is a movie with a message; a real " feel-good " flick. Go see it for an uplifting couple of hours. I would see it again.

    This movie is great for families. There is nothing offensive in the movie at all and its sutable for young children. Overall i was a little disappointed being a big fan of The Office i found this to be a little boring adn i came expecting to see Steve Carrell's antics and was bored after realizing how tone down he was. The message of the movie is clear and obvious and it is a good message not necessarily a Christian based one, it leaves you with a desire to be more of an environmentalist. Great for families with a variety of aged kids, dont reccomend it for people seeking a funny movie since the funniest part was the dancing in the credits at the end of the movie.
