September 21, 2007
For long after the waters have subsided, there remains a very wide gap between havoc and hilarity.
August 3, 2007
Should have been a lot more amusing than it turns out.
August 3, 2007
Avoid like the Ten Plagues.
August 3, 2007
Staggeringly unfunny.
July 31, 2007
Mildly amusing.
July 15, 2007
Evan Almighty belongs to that sorry cinema subgenre, Comedy without the Funny Bits.
July 14, 2007
'Evan Almighty' misses so many tricks, it ultimately misses the mark.
June 27, 2007
This is PG-rated proselytizing tinged with Al Gore self-righteousness, all with the narrative thrust of a film about the apocalypse starring Kirk Cameron.
June 25, 2007
It's a paper-thin alleged comedy with a laugh drought of Biblical proportions.
June 22, 2007
This is the Old Testament minus the wrath, divine retribution as chicken soup for the soul -- where's the fun in that?
June 22, 2007
It's an almighty, humorless bore.
June 22, 2007
Neither biblical disaster nor heavenly treat, the underwhelming Evan Almighty can still lay claim to a superlative: it's the bravest (or craziest) movie of 2007.
June 22, 2007
The highlights of Evan Almighty aren't the supernatural moments but the scenes in which Carell grows comically flustered with his situation.
June 22, 2007
Evan Almighty in which Steve Carell is commanded by God (Morgan Freeman) to build an ark, is a movie far less interesting than its premise.
June 22, 2007
This film is to faith what a box of animal crackers is to nature.
June 22, 2007
Evan Almighty may not be enough to make you shout 'Hallelujah,' but it's not the cinematic equivalent of a plague, either.
June 22, 2007
Though far from a disaster of Biblical proportions, Evan Almighty is a mild, sporadically funny comedy in an oversized sentimental frame.
June 22, 2007
[Kids] will enjoy the animal antics best, especially when the critters start doing their part to help build the ark. Parents will have to settle for the few inspired bits by Carell, stuck with the Job-like task of keeping this leaky bucket afloat.
June 22, 2007
Here's the funniest thing: In trying desperately to reconnect with religious Americans, Hollywood assumes religious Americans are so dumb they'll laugh at anything.
June 22, 2007
Evan Almighty combines the easiest elements of lazy comedy with the most indulgent elements of lazy disaster movies. Even Mr. Carell, gamely mugging and wincing and snaring the random reflex laugh, gets pulled down with the ship.
