Life Is About Choices

And Steve Carell made a really bad one. As Beerorkid points out (and as Jwilt concurs), even Mr. Nice Guy L. Kent Wolgamott gave Evan Almighty not 2 but 3 thumbs down. I just saw this and have to say that it is indeed pretty awful. I won’t spoil the “story” but suffice to say that it is not funny at all to watch a guy dressed as Noah yell at animals on a boat. Its a shame, and I am saying this as someone who really likes Carell - who has, in my opinion, 10x the comic talent of John Stewart (as do Colbert and Rob Riggle as well). Additionally, Morgan Freeman has basically been playing the same character since around 1989, and was nothing new here. This movie was really not worth seeing at all in my opinion.

The best Daily Show alumni movie out there is still Blackballed: The Bobby Dukes Story, with the 3 Robs: Rob Corddry, Rob Huebel, and a completely hilarious and totally out of bounds Rob Riggle. If you haven’t seen this one yet, definitely go out and rent it.

In other movie news: Yes - Is that Indiana Jones in a rocking chair?

Rob Riggle will be the next Patrick Warburton.  Mark my words.

There are many classic scenes in there. The Boo-ya-ka rap scene is hilarious. Also, check out the entire Rob Riggle DVD extra scene on N.O.S.O. (National Organization of State Offensive).
