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

Fans of the original film will find much to enjoy, though they really shouldn't and it would be morally indefensible to encourage them.
| Original Score: 1/5

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

Unless you're a devout Christian or one of those preteens who laugh at anything, there are far better (and more interesting) movies to choose from.

Squeezes most of the life out of Carell's twitchy, oddball comedic persona.

It's a gentle, warm, 'big tent' big-budget comedy with all the rough edges rubbed off. Not an edge to be found.
| Original Score: 3/5

It's a trifle of a thing; the kind of thing you'd see on a broadcast network on a Saturday afternoon, at least before you grew bored and changed the channel.

No doubt there is an audience ready to receive this relatively harmless, absolutely pointless, aggressively stupid, professionally realized pap. It will delight some people who will find it cute and take its casual blasphemies for a sense of humor

The movie comes across as Sunday school meets Greenpeace meets Ace Ventura -- laughter, religion and environmentalism make strange bedfellows.

While I admit that Evan Almighty isn't as ineptly constructed and poorly realized as its predecessor, this still isn't a wise investment of anyone's entertainment dollar.

The divine guidance afforded the title character does not extend to script doctoring.

God is played, once again, by Morgan Freeman, whose suave charm can sell all sorts of silliness, but not the amiable imbecility peddled by this film.

It has to be one of the flattest, unfunny comedies that I've seen in a very long time. Honestly, the best I could manage was a weak smile here or there.

Neither the jokes nor the special effects seem heaven-sent in 'Evan Almighty.' The humor consists of pratfalls, cartoonish crotch attacks and bird droppings.

The idea to show characters dancing to a song with lyrics that go "Everybody Dance Now!" is indicative of the movie's creativity level.

The sum effect is mild yet strange, lacking both the zing of smart comedy and the cohesion of sensible plotting.

Much of the slapstick comedy involved in the building is feeble, and the film never does something unexpected once the wheels are set in motion.

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