Uh, yeah. Not so great of a movie. Great to have had 90 minutes to do nothing but stare at a movie screen, not so great the movie was Evan Almighty. A little harsh I guess. Some general thoughts *spoilers ahead*:
- My biggest pet peeve of the movie is that there was no real reason to have all the animals on the ark. It was a localized flood and there was just no good reasons to have polar bears come from the North Pole to be on there. That really bugs me and they should have done a better job coming up with a plot that made that work.
- A few of the things he did was really a little, I don’t know, unbelievable or weird or something. As if building an ark wasn’t unbelievable but the whole pony tail thing was weird and him stuffing his robe into his clothes and going into work. I don’t know, I just didn’t like that part.
- I do believe the original Noah’s ark thing happened and it did make my appreciate what Noah must have went through
- The building of the ark was pretty interesting actually.
- I was very glad the wife and kids came back. It would have made me mad had they split over it. It was stated clearly in the movie that Noah, his wife and three sons built the ark, not Noah and a bunch of animals.
- My mom didn’t want to see it because she thought Steve Carroll would be irreverant. The movie had quite the opposite attitude toward God and the story of Noah and the Ark.
- The best scene of the whole thing is when God and his wife were talking at the restaurant and he says something to the affect of God doesn’t necessarily give you what you ask for, but the opportunity to create it. If you ask for patience, God doesn’t make you patient automatically, He gives you opportunities to be patient. If you ask for your family to become closer, he doesn’t give you warm and fuzzies about your family, He gives you opportunities to become closer as a family.
- Steve Carroll is hilarious no matter what role he plays. He did a great job.
- “Andy” from The Office was in the movie. He was hilarious.
- Wanda Sykes was also great in the movie. I liked her line, “Saving animals, I can roll with that….God told me to? I’m rolling out.”
- Molly Shannon’s character was kind of awkward and much overdone.
- Sort of aggravated me that they probably killed a lot of people and ruined DC during the flood and it was never even acknowledged.
I don’t know, just overall it was one of those movies that had funny parts but didn’t connect overall in plot or in characters. I’m sorry I spent $8 but I do feel it was more of the writing than it was the acting.
