This past weekend, I watched Evan Almighty, featuring Steve Carell and Morgan Freeman.
The movie is a sequel to Bruce Almighty; In this one God (Freeman) contacts Congressman Evan Baxter (Carell) and tells him to build an ark in preparation for a great flood; You can imagine the rest.
I saw the trailer for this movie a long time ago, I liked the idea and what I saw in the trailer, and thought it looked like a very promising funny summer comedy.
I was a bit dissapointed though because even though it has some good laughs here and there, it just didn’t turn out to be the great summer comedy I was waiting for. Personally, I was expecting a bit more from Steve Carell.
Some people say this movie isn’t just about comedy, it also has a message, well yeah it’s kind of true, but you can be funny and have a message at the same time.
My score for this movie would have to be: 5/10.
If I didn’t have such high expectations it might have gotten more, but well…
