A scheming raccoon fools a mismatched family of forest creatures into helping him repay a debt of food, by invading the new suburban sprawl that popped up while they were hibernating...and learns a lesson about family himself.
Buffalo newsman Evan Baxter is elected to Congress with the slogan, "Change the world." He lucks into a huge house in a new Virginia suburb. His Capitol office is also fantastic, but there's a catch: he's tapped by the powerful Congressman Long to co-sponsor a bill to allow development in national parks. In steps God, who appears to a disbelieving Evan and gently commands him to build an ark. Tools and wood arrive in Evan's yard, animal pairs follow, his beard and hair grow wildly, nomad's clothes and a staff appear. Long grows impatient, Evan starts building, his family leaves him, reporters gather, and drought grips D.C. Still, Evan believes. But will he change the world? Written by
The massed animal scenes seemingly showing thousands of approaching animals used digitally effects to increase apparent numbers. However, contrary to rumor, the lesser numbers of helper animals present during Ark construction outdoor scenes were quite real. See more »
At the beginning of the film, when Evan is praying at the end of his bed, there is a light shining from the left side of the screen. There is also a light shining through a window behind him when the shot changes. Assuming this scene takes place at night, the light makes it clear that this scene was shot during the day. See more »
First, the movie is OK, but not great in any way... but
Why are the Congressmen and Congresswomen in the cast citied as Congressperson(s). This is totally beyond me. Why is IMDb succumbing to political correctness? Only John Goodman is citied as a Congressman. I'm really surprised that they citied Morgan Freeman as GOD, since citing GOD is not politically correct in this day and age. IMDb is always touting guidelines for postings, but they themselves are being politically correct. When will they truly take a stand and cite the people for what they play as characters.
