Morgan Freeman, as the God from "Bruce Almighty," visits Evan (Steve Carell), a newly elected congressman who plans to change the world. When he prays for help to make it happen, it comes as a delivery of ancient tools, large quantities of lumber and a directive from God to build a Ark. Also with Lauren Graham, John Goodman and Jimmy Bennett. Directed by Tom Shadyac. [1:30]
