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 »
When Evan is in his office surrounded by birds, behind him are two blue peacocks. Within the story we are meant to believe that this is a breeding pair, but they are both male. Female peacocks (peahens) are brown. See more »
And that's the news. But before we sign off, we'd like to thank our very own Evan Baxter, who has just been elected Buffalo's representative to Congress. And now we have a surprise for Evan.
No, you don't.
Oh, no. I really didn't expect this.
Here's a look back at his run for office.

Okay okay - so this isn't "The 10 commandments" and it isn't supposed to be the best movie you ever saw - but damn if it didn't touch me as well as make me laugh my ass off! I especially loved all of the little "inside jokes" - like the fact that his wife's name is Joan (of ARK???). And that the realtor (Molly Shannon) is actually named EVE ADAMS (get it? Adam and Eve??)! And did ya catch the name of the movie on the marquee "40 Year Old Virgin Mary" (Corel's other movie - minus the Mary of course!)? I mean come on! That was genius! Stupid scenes just like the fish in the tank cracked me up.
Even if you just love animals this was a great flick - and the credits were fun too! Seriously - just try not to take it too seriously and you'll really enjoy it!
