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.

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.

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...

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

Evan Almighty is saved by a strong supporting cast and a decent climax, though the rest of the film is underwritten and disappointing in places.

Better than "Bruce'" by at least two turtle doves and a 40-year-old virgin...

Entertaining enough to be a big hit, but the script is badly underwritten.

100% exactly what I expected. No big belly laughs but a light enough comedy to pass the time.

Richly mixes funny, supernatural, and heart. A film the whole family can enjoy, as evidenced by my happy clan of four ranging in age from seven to sixty-seven.

It's like a lazy summer day - too light and inconsequential to really get excited about, but you have to be pretty cranky to complain too loudly.

The story plays on a juvenile level, and surprisingly enough it works on that level.

Both fun and serious as it bestows its important messages about family, responsibility and the environment.

Feeling nostalgic about those 'Oh, God' movies that George Burns made 30-odd years ago? Then 'Evan Almighty' might seem like manna from heaven.
