Steve Carell (THE 40 YEAR-OLD VIRGIN), reprising his role as the polished, preening newscaster Evan Baxter of BRUCE ALMIGHTY, is the next one anointed by God to accomplish a holy mission in the hilarious new comedy EVAN ALMIGHTY. Blockbuster comedy director Tom Shadyac (THE NUTTY PROFESSOR, LIAR LIAR, BRUCE ALMIGHTY) returns behind the camera for this next episode of divine intervention. This time, however, his cast grows two-by-two.
Newly elected to Congress, Evan leaves Buffalo behind and moves his family to suburban northern Virginia. Once there, his life gets turned upside-down when God (Morgan Freeman) appears and mysteriously commands him to build an ark. But his perplexed family just can't decide whether Evan is having an extraordinary mid-life crisis or is truly onto something of biblical proportions...
Strange things start happening to Evan who becomes convinced he is losing it when mysterious deliveries of wood and stone-age tools are delivered and animals of every shape and size start arriving on his doorstep. Animals start following him to Congress, much to the dismay of his assistant Rita (WANDA SYKES), and Congressman Long (JOHN GOODMAN), one of the House's most powerful members who is encouraging Evan to co-sponsor a controversial high profile bill that will take him away from his oft-neglected family but will further his career ambitions.
Suddenly Evan's self-absorbed life is transformed from an overnight success to an almighty mess! Matters deteriorate further when Evan's clean-shaven appearance is replaced by the growth of a beard that refuses to be shaved and the number 614 appears everywhere, which he later discovers represents a verse from the bible in which God instructs Noah to build an ark! God soon delivers the 'ark' instruction to Evan and warns him that a flood is coming. Chaos ensues when Evan's appearance begins to resemble that of the biblical legend; he is suspended from Congress and begins the task of building the ark!
