Evan Almighty with Steve Carell

After our day at Nasher Sculpture, we stopped by the library to get our books. I also bought many, many chicklet books from the library sale. They're only a dollar each. I went to town for it. I think I must have bought 2 copies of The Devil Wears Prada. I am sure there's an explanation for buying two more copies of a book I have read and still own a copy already.

Right before checking out, I grabbed this DVD. I watch in with my children, and had a few good laughs. One of my children said he enjoyed it so much, we should do it again. He rarely says things like that.

What I got out of the story. G-d have a sick sense of humor in this movie. Evan (the Noah-alike) was to build an ark. First HE gave Evan chaos in his life by having animals follow him around like Peter of Hamlin, the piper. If that wasn't enough, He had him fired so he can have more time to build his ark. While it was hilarious, the other side of my brain was wondering why he didn't just use a whole bunch of jobless, homeless people to build his ark. If He can make an animal do His bidding, then maybe he should use it to good work by training the jobless by choice and the transient.

Overall, this is a fun movie to watch with the kids. Yes, even when they've seen it for the third time, it's still fun.
