I love Steve Carell

That said, now to give my opinion of Evan Almighty.
Remember those old Don Knotts' movies;
The Incredible Mr. Limpet,
The Reluctant Astronaut,
The Ghost and Mr. Chicken?

When the movie was over last night that's what popped into my head. It was mostly fun, but it felt like a vehicle for Steve's brand of comedy AND for family viewing (not that there's anything wrong with that). I wouldn't recommend it for the story or for it being the funniest thing I've seen in a long time. The story was pretty much what you'd expect from that type of movie - transparent, predictable. It's the talent they bring to this type of film that makes it fun to watch.
I would only recommend it if you really, truly love Steve.
