Steve Carell, Lauren Graham and John Goodman star in the comedy Evan Almighty - a re-telling of the biblical story of Noah's Ark. Get Kidzworld's DVD review right here!

Evan Baxter (Steve Carell) is a newly voted-in congressman looking to change the world. Little does he know, God (played by Morgan Freeman) has bigger plans for him than he may be ready for. Is Evan Almighty a movie of epic proportions or does it get washed away with the forecasted flood? Find out with Kidzworld's DVD review!

Evan Almighty - Are You There God?

The Baxter family has faced some big changes. With Evan being voted into congress, his wife and three boys are forced to pack up and head off to Washington to start their new life. Workaholic Evan is not making the adjustment easy on his kids either. When he's offered a chance to support an important bill on his first day at work, he knows he has to jump on it - even if means bailing on his family's planned hiking trip. His wife (played by Gilmore Girls' Lauren Graham) is at her wits end and prays that her family will be closer and urges her husband to pray too.

Evan Almighty - Devine Duty

Evan isn't a big believer, but figures it can't hurt to give God a shout out. The very next day, things in Evan's life start getting weird. His alarm clock keeps going off at 6:14, even though he's set it for 7:00, deliveries of wood start to arrive at his house and he's followed to work by pairs of animals. When a mysterious man claiming to be God visits him and tells him to build an ark, Evan is certain it's just the pressures of his new job that are getting to him!

Evan Almighty - Sailing the Seven Seas

As Evan realizes that all the strange happenings in his life are going to continue unless he builds an ark, he rallies the troops to help him with his mission. Too bad everyone thinks he's crazy! If Evan's bent on getting this boat done, he may just have to do it alone.

Evan Almighty - DVD Features

The Evan Almighty DVD isn't stingy with the features. It gives you all kinds of goodies like an interactive game called Animal Roundup and a featurette called The Ark-itects of Noah's Ark. There are also cast interviews, deleted scenes and a behind-the-scenes look at the movie's visual effects. Plus, it gives you all the cute-animal eye candy you could want - and then some.

Evan Almighty - Bottom Line

Evan Almighty is a pretty straight-forward re-telling of the story of Noah and the ark, with a bit of modern-day tweaking. Steve Carell brings some laughs, but for the most part this flick is a poor attempt at a feel-good family flick.

    Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon – Ek Baar Phir 23rd April 2014 The episode starts with Astha telling Shlok that she came to get a pen. Shlok looks in his laptop. Employee comes and asks him to come for the board meeting. Shlok leaves from his cabin. Shlok gives the presentation. Astha smiles looking at him. Shlok is surprised to see I love you Astha with Astha’s photo on the projector. He gets shocked and asks his employee to go. They smile. Astha tells Shlok that he confesses his feelings infront of everyone. Well done. Shlok gets angry at her. He says, those three words are not important for me. Astha says, it matters to me a lot. When you don’t know these three words then how will you know my feelings. Shlok says, it is waste to talk to you. Astha says, ok don’t tell me anything. She says sorry and leaves. Astha is walking on the road and thinks to take an auto. She says, he won’t confess his feelings. She is about to take an auto. Shlok comes and takes her in his car. Astha says, I don’t want to go with you. She gets sad thinking he will not say I love you. Shlok looks at her and stops the car. He gets down and Astha follows him. Astha asks him to come. Shlok shouts Astha I love you……………….. I love you so much……………………Astha gets surprised and happy. Shlok smiles. Saiyaave Ab Raasta Dikhade Tu…………………plays. Astha gets shy. Shlok asks, why are you feeling shy? Astha hugs him happily. Shlok too is happy and smiles. They close their eyes while the hug continues to be everlasting. They are standing on the middle of the road while the song Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon plays……….. Anjali is waiting for Astha. She wonders where they might be stuck. Sojal says, Astha don’t care about time. Anjali thinks to call Astha. Shlok is driving the car and holding Astha’s hand. Astha gets Anjali’s call. She asks him to leave her hand. Shlok says, no. You won’t talk to anybody and switches off the phone. Anjali gets annoyed as she thinks Astha rejected her call. Shlok gets romantic and says I hold your hand for life. Astha gets shy again. Shlol says, you looks cute when you gets shy. Iss Pyaar Ko Plays………………………………………………… Shlok looks lovingly at her. Astha and Shlok come home. Shlok holds her again and gets romantic. Astha asks him to leave her hand. Shlok says, I didn’t hold your hand to leave you. What is your problem. When I am loving you, you are not liking it. He says, I am loving you infront of everyone. Astha says, not infront of everyone. Shlok asks her to give him a book about the dos and donts. They come inside. Anjali asks Astha where is your phone. Astha says it was lost. Anjali looks at her phone. Astha says, battery was low. Niranjan asks Anjali to do the rituals first. Anjali asks Astha to do the grah pravesh. Astha looks at Shlok. They enter together while Shlok holding her hand. Anjali makes her wear veil and asks her to be in veil until morning. She says, everyone can see you except Shlok. Shlok gets angry. Anjali asks her to change her saree and wear the given saree. She asks her to stay in the guest room tonight, to be away from Shlok. Astha says ok. She goes inside with Anjali. Astha gets ready and thinks what is this ritual. Today Shlok confessed his feeling and I have to be away from him. Shlok looks at Astha’s photo in his laptop. He recalls saying I love you Astha. He comes out of his room. Varad stops her. Shlok says, I want to see Astha. Varad says, Aayi said you can’t see her. Shlok says, I will see her anyhow. Varad says, all the best. Astha is in the guest room and is restless. She thinks to send voice message to Shlok. She messages him I miss you Shlok. Anjali comes and asks her to come for the Moon Puja. Shlok thinks how to see Astha’s one glimpse. Astha looks at moon in the water and do the puja with Anjali and Sojal. Servant comes and informs Anjali that Niranjan is calling her. Anjali goes. Astha is doing the puja and prays for Shlok’s long life. Shlok comes there and says I will see my moon. Astha covers her face under the veil and runs. Shlok runs after her. Astha veil gets removed. Shlok is standing behind her. Astha hugs him and says you can’t see my face. Shlok says, I came to meet you alone. I will see your face at any cost. Astha runs. Precap: Shlok sees Astha’s face in the water. He says I am happy. Astha smiles. Neither your ritual have break nor my wish.
