Summer Movie Preview: ""Evan Almighty""

    Apparently, “”Ace Ventura”” was a special exception – Jim Carrey declined to reprise his role from “”Bruce Almighty,”” stating that he wasn’t particularly interested in being the same character twice. Normally, this would be a severe blow to consistency and plot flow – but with funnyman Steve Carell as the new protagonist, not much comedic effect or skill should be missing in the –follow-up sequel, “”Evan Almighty.””

    Evan abandons his role as the bumbling anchorman of the Buffalo TV news station in order to pursue a career on Capitol Hill. Newly elected to Congress, he leaves the crowded streets of Buffalo behind and begins a new lifestyle in a suburban Virginia community, an attempt to strengthen familial bonds. However, his midlife crisis takes a dramatic turn when God – played by Morgan Freeman- – performs a divine intervention and approaches him to build an ark for the upcoming flood. June 22.
