Evan Almighty (2007)

The networks couldn't resist capitalizing on Steve Carrell's bit part in the box-office success Bruce Almighty. And I imagine the emerged evangelical ticket-buying power had a little something to do with it too.

Evan is elected to congress and moves his family to Virginia. As he begins his job, God visits upon him and Noahfies him. Evan must prepare the neighbourhood for an impending flood that only he believes in.

A couple things really impress me in this film. It made me laugh a lot. Some of the one-liners are gold. The other thing is the animal effects with blue screen and CGI that made everything look impressively realistic.

An obvious environmental theme accompanies the affectionate and personal God theme. Evan's heart softens towards animals and it hardens towards legislation that privatizes virgin forest.

Truth: God wants us to care for our families, our neighbourhood, and nature. Political integrity is good too.
