Family entertainment - Christian friendly
Verified purchase
My whole family really enjoyed this movie. It's funny throughout (includes some potty humor) with heartwarming moments. I recall one swear word (p*ssed). No nudity, sex, drugs, or blasphemy. God is portrayed as sovereign. Has appeal for both believers and non-believers. Hilarious and entertaining family film. I'm surprised Hollywood made it. Not a mind-blowing film, just good natured fun that's appropriate for every member of my family.

Mostly funny, and some dabbing of tears perhaps

8-5-17 2nd viewing after a long time. Couldn't remember most of it, and especially the knot tying. Made for solid entertainment, but glad I only rented. By the time I'm again in this schmaltz?-I-love-it-pour-it-on-me mood, it'll be streaming for "free" at Netflix.

A family film, and you won't be bothered thereby by this material's staying within moral boundaries the Pilgrims would be happy to sponsor. But there's tons of laughs that might be tried-and-true, but they're nicely timed, don't overstay their welcome, and freshened a goodly lotta. If you're not a person of faith in these kinds of doings, hey, put all that aside, this is Bible-lite stuff and the audience is not required to resonate with the very few parts that are, well, scripturally necessitated. This is not Bruce Almighty or Absolutely Anything; it stands by itself -- an equal in its own way. 60 year parts of me were as comfy as could be with most of this, but the film's humor definitely has a reach beyond one's inner child.

Great movie... but...
Verified purchase
They way they did "Bruce Almighty" was excellent! This one has the same great comedy in it, but they just throw in some heavy biblical things now and then that just flatline the comedy. You didnt get this in "Bruce Almighty", why did you have to throw in that stuff with this one??

Still a good movie, but nowhere near the rewatch ability as Bruce Almighty. They really missed that target.

A really enjoyable DVD
Verified purchase
One of the most entertaining movies I've seen lately. Predictable, ridiculous storyline has some exaggerated antics, but the entire movie presents as a relaxing, good humored way to enjoy about 90 minutes, provided nothing is taken seriously (e.g., religion, politics). The human cast is surprisingly good, with Steve Carell doing a great job moderating what could have been an over the top silly lead. The non-human cast is outstanding, and the special feature on that is a real bonus.

I smiled from start to finish, something I rarely do.

Weird, and a little humorous.
Verified purchase
Th movie does have funny parts, I mean it has Molly Shannon and other funny people in its cast. But the ask thing, the whole ark play for a river flood of sorts is just absurd. It plays too much of suspension of belief for a stupid plot, that is why I stopped watching.

Watch it with your younger kids - they'll love it!
Verified purchase
You know what I like about this movie? I could watch this with my 6 year daughter without having to explain swear words or inappropriate situations. I couldn't do that with "Bruce Almighty" and wouldn't watch it with the younger kids. Steve Carell is so funny - how may times can you hit your thumb with a hammer and make people laugh. Steve's facial expressions had my daughter cracking up most of the movie. She loved it....and I did too and appreciated seeing her laugh hysterically at Steve's antics.
