Evan Almighty is a fresh twist on Bruce Almighty with a different way of "joking with God." It's not as good as it's predecessor but it's still a fun family film, just a little too silly at times. Although I do hold my hands up for anyone who can keep a straight face whilst an aviary of birds is sitting on them pooing. That does skill! I didn't bother going to see this at the cinema, think I'd have been disappointed but for the price this DVD is at the moment, it's very good for a rainy (or flooded) day. The animals make this film quite good for the younger audience.
I loved it. I've seen quite a few negative reviews and heard bad things about it, but I thought it was very funny, had a good storyline and a great message. Special effects were top of the line as well. Steve Carrel was great, but he didn't quite have the chemistry with Morgan Freeman as Carrey did. Evan Almighty is a good film, just don't go expecting 'Bruce Almighty 2' otherwise you'll be disappointed; it's a completely different type of film.
