It all goes down about as smoothly as an apple in the Garden of Eden.

Loathed during its initial theatrical run, I fail to see the ultimate sin of Evan Almighty, outside of some painfully lazy screenwriting and irritating pace issues.

Fans of the original film will find much to enjoy, though they really shouldn't and it would be morally indefensible to encourage them.

There's a great deal of comedic talent working here, and none of them can muster anything more than a decent chuckle.

The Bruce Almighty spinoff gets a touch preachy and saccharine at times, but it's still fun and funny enough to work as a nice, family-friendly diversion.

Horrid, Tim-Allen-was-not-available treacle

Only Wanda Sykes, as the movie's obligatory reaction-shot deadpanner, exhibits a functioning wit.

Evan Almighty is an ungainly melding of religious paean, big-budget studio comedy, feel-good family niceties and summer-blockbuster spectacle.

This movie isn't about logic, faith or family, and doesn't have many laughs except when baboons carry things -- that's always funny. It's just mindless summer popcorn.

It makes sense that the sequel to 2003's hit Bruce Almighty should star Steve Carell instead of Jim Carrey. Hilarious as Carrey was, everyone knows Carell stole the show...

Even more blatant religious propaganda and preaching than the first installment.

Heaven help parents if Hollywood stops making silly, good-natured, PG-rated family comedies.

Carell's morality tale much milder than Carrey's.

Evan Almighty could have been a lot worse, but anything with Carell has--or had--the potential to be a lot better.

For long after the waters have subsided, there remains a very wide gap between havoc and hilarity.

Unapologetically, aggressively unfunny.

While Bruce Almighty was an inventive and often hilarious parable about divine intervention, Evan Almighty is mighty short of laughs.

There are more jokes in any chapter of the Book of Job than in the whole of Evan Almighty.

A FUN comedy of epic Biblical proportions with Carell in fine form.

Should have been a lot more amusing than it turns out.
