    I am personally looking forward to Evan Almighty. Too many people are writing it off too soon. Steve Carrell is always funny, no way around that. Plus, it would've been very easy for them to take the route of a Bruce Almighty, exact plot sequel (Evan gets God's powers)...instead, they are taking another biblical story (Noah's Arc) and working with that. I think it will produce great results and can't wait to see it.

    Steve Carrell is always the highlight of the films he is in.

    Should be a good film. Bruce Almighty was brilliant

    It would have been nice to see Jim Carrey back as God but this sounds funny as well

    I thought the original idea was that Evan's life and career was in the gutter because of what Bruce had done to him on air, and then God comes down to give his his task? I liked the idea quite a bit.

    The latest news has Even becoming Congressman afterwards.

    That'd be stupid because Bruce apologized & set things right with Evan at the end & gave Evan the Anchor Job

    The plot for this movie is completely ******ed and I'm guessing that the people writing it completely missed the point of Bruce Almighty. The only reason they'd make a sequel dedicated to such a backburner character as Evan is because the 40 Year Old Virgin made 100 million, and now they're looking to cash in.

    I think Carrell is one of the most talented and original comedic actors today. I hope he never goes all Hollywood and tames up his persona.

    I think this is a bad idea. The first wasn't funny.

    I hope Carrey has a cameo.
    BTW, this movie will more than likely be great, because Bruce Almighty was great.

    I think this is a really bad idea. Bruce was definately funny, and Steve Carrell has become such a sought after star now, that i dont know why he would chose this. He should continue making movies for himself (just like 40 year old virgin)

    I hear that Lauren Graham, the hot mom of Gilmore Girls, will be in Evan Almighty. I might go see it just to see her - especially if she takes her clothes off, because being almost 40 she's still hotter than 99% of all the 20 something waifs in Hollywood right now (and you know it!).
