With "Evan Almighty," director Tom Shadyac and writer Steve Oedekerk again manage to balance humor with spiritual insight.

It all goes down about as smoothly as an apple in the Garden of Eden.
September 28, 2012
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.
July 6, 2011
Fans of the original film will find much to enjoy, though they really shouldn't and it would be morally indefensible to encourage them.
March 21, 2011
There's a great deal of comedic talent working here, and none of them can muster anything more than a decent chuckle.
October 23, 2009
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.
August 27, 2009
Horrid, Tim-Allen-was-not-available treacle
April 23, 2009
Only Wanda Sykes, as the movie's obligatory reaction-shot deadpanner, exhibits a functioning wit.
July 23, 2008
Evan Almighty is an ungainly melding of religious paean, big-budget studio comedy, feel-good family niceties and summer-blockbuster spectacle.
March 3, 2008
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...
January 6, 2008
Even more blatant religious propaganda and preaching than the first installment.
November 19, 2007
Heaven help parents if Hollywood stops making silly, good-natured, PG-rated family comedies.
October 31, 2007
Carell's morality tale much milder than Carrey's.
October 19, 2007
Evan Almighty could have been a lot worse, but anything with Carell has--or had--the potential to be a lot better.
September 28, 2007
Embarrassing attempt to replicate the success of the 2003 Jim Carrey vehicle Bruce Almighty.
September 21, 2007
For long after the waters have subsided, there remains a very wide gap between havoc and hilarity.
September 12, 2007
Unapologetically, aggressively unfunny.
September 6, 2007
While Bruce Almighty was an inventive and often hilarious parable about divine intervention, Evan Almighty is mighty short of laughs.
August 11, 2007
There are more jokes in any chapter of the Book of Job than in the whole of Evan Almighty.
