The last time we saw Evan Baxter (Steve Carell), he was being tormented by rival Bruce Nolan onscreen, live from their Buffalo TV station. But as time passed and Evan has made up with Bruce, he's gone onto bigger and better things. Newly elected to Washington D.C. as a congressman, Evan has left Buffalo, New York in pursuit of a greater calling. But that calling isn't serving in the illustrious ranks of America's politics, but being summoned by the Almighty himself (Morgan Freeman), who has handed Evan the task of building a new ark, much as Noah did before. With time passing by and his family belittled by Evan's newfound realization, Evan will have to do the work that God has given him in what promises to be an unusual adventure for a man who just wanted to serve his country, might actually be serving humanity.

I heard they sunk a lot of money into this one, hope it's good. Steve Carell is great.

The fact that Jim Carrey turned down the script makes me wonder how bad this sequal will be. Mark my words it will be bad.

I woke up and realized about 3 years ago that I can buy several new movies each month rather than pay for HBO, Stars, etc., and I come out way ahead in the long run.

i really liked Bruce Almighty, but i have a bad feeling that a good sequel would actually need real divine intervention for it to be worth watching.

I guess Hollywood just wants to use Steve Carell while he's still worth something. I'm not going anywhere near this movie, it sounds like yet another poorly conceived sequel.
