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

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.

If you are looking for Jim Carey type humor, then this is not the movie for you. It is not really a sequel to Bruce Almighty. But if you are looking for a warm, funny family film, then Evan Almighty is a winner. Despite the theme, it is not really religious but rather a movie about family sticking together and having faith. Steve Carrell is outstanding and Morgan Freeman is wonderful, as always. Wanda Sykes is very funny as well. It is rare to find a movie that both kids and adults can enjoy without one party being bored or offended. Don't let the negative reviews sway you - this movie is GREAT for all ages and has a nice message. (Not to mention a pretty funny dance sequence during the credits!)
