FILM SYNOPSIS: Junior congressman Evan Baxter (Steve Carell), whose wish is to “change the world,” is heard by none other than God (Morgan Freeman). When God appears with the perplexing request to build an ark, Evan is sure he is losing it, along with his family, friends, neighbors, colleagues and the news media. But soon mysterious deliveries of wood and tools are being dropped on his doorstep, animals of every shape and size are flocking to him two by two, and Evan’s predicament starts to mount, as well as the laughs.
