Carell and Freeman are great together and Wanda Sykes' acerbic humor is perfect for her role as Evan's perplexed assistant.

Evan Almighty may not be enough to make you shout ''Hallelujah,'' but it's not the cinematic equivalent of a plague, either.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
Though far from a disaster of Biblical proportions, Evan Almighty is a mild, sporadically funny comedy in an oversized sentimental frame.
58
The message is so good-hearted, so inarguable, so dull.
50
Ultimately, Evan Almighty is too sappy, too sanctimonious.

The Hollywood Reporter
Carell is getting quite good as these everyman characters but lacks the audacity of, say, a Carrey or a Robin Williams. He is making comedy out of dullness.
50
Carell's frantic mugging as a modern-day Noah barely keeps Evan Almighty afloat.
38
It's an almighty, humorless bore.
25
It's Carell who projects the movie's only sense of mischief. But it's too little and too late.
25
A limp, slow-moving and desperately unfunny comedy.
20
This is movie-making by and for dummies, a sappy little bible story, blissed out on its own ineptitude.
