Parents Guide for
Evan Almighty (2007) More at IMDbPro »

The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.

Sex & Nudity

Contrary to prior reviews, no part of Joan's breasts are shown. Period.

The only hint at sexual suggestiveness is when Evan steps outside on the porch to greet the mail lady. He is shown from the waist up only; while plants and other distractions cover his private parts.

Violence & Gore

Absolutely no violence or gore, as this is a *religious* film. (This also explains why there is no nudity whatsoever).

A previous review claimed that the flood scene (when Evan and his family, along with a lot of skeptic locals) constitutes as 'frightening'. All that is shown is the ark and people banding together to hold on so they don't fall into the waves. No one is maimed, hurt, or injured. And contrary to this previous review, a suggestion is not made that people are wounded or killed *at all*. It is actually portrayed completely differently: that not a soul was harmed. The animals and people are all safe.

Profanity

One has to quote this previous review:

"At least 1 incomplete, possible "s" word (although it could just as easily have been the start of the word "shoot" or any others that start with "sh").

This person obviously either A) never watched the movie or B) Busied him/herself with other things and did not lend complete attention to the film. If said person had actually paid attention, that person would see that there are sheep in the car with him; that he literally says: "Sheeeeeeep!"

Allow me to quote this entry from the same reviewer as well: "4 uses of "Oh my God" and 1 use each of "By God" and "God" as exclamations". This is not profanity. It is a film centered around God and his children. Of course these phrases will be used. Now, "God damn" would be offensive but this is *never* used throughout the entire film.

About Evan's long hair, beard, and the way he's acting, Rita sarcastically asks, "What, are you shooting up Rogaine?"

The flood scene is, **at most** mildly frightening. Perhaps only to a young infant, actually. It is intense because it is a pivotal plot turn within the film. There is no hint at harm or any intentional frightening scenes; like that of which one would see in a horror flick. That has no place in this film.
