Filled with the same kind of soft, goopy preaching that spoiled â€œBruce Almighty,â€ â€œEvan Almightyâ€ has zero edge and does nothing to take advantage of Carellâ€™s talent that was fully on display in â€œThe 40-Year-Old Virginâ€ and â€œLittle Miss Sunshine,â€ two comedies that had some bite.
Here, heâ€™s stuck in the doldrums, unable to find a foil or, surprisingly, present Evanâ€™s uncomfortable move to ark builder with his usual physical hilarity. Hereâ€™s hoping this isnâ€™t the start of a long, downhill slide for the star of â€œThe Office.â€
Itâ€™s not really that much of a surprise that â€œEvan Almightyâ€ is the summerâ€™s first true stinkball. It appeared to be a reach to begin with â€” a sequel to a picture that wasnâ€™t all that good that didnâ€™t bring back the star of the show.
Still I will see it. T and I love schtupid humor
