5.0 out of 5 starsMostly funny, and some dabbing of tears perhaps
Verified purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 starsA 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.

5.0 out of 5 starsWatch 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.

5.0 out of 5 starsGood Clean Comedy

This is a great show to watch if you don't want all the nudity/cussing/filth that plagues most Hollywood movies. My wife and I can watch this with our three kids and not worry about what they might be learning. REALLY FUNNY MOVIE too!

5.0 out of 5 starsOld Story: Modern Twist.
Verified purchase
An old, very, very old story, told with a modern twist.

Bottom line this is a feel good, funny, cute tale told for the millionth times. It's about Noah, his ark, and coupling animals. Nevertheless, it's set in modern times, which makes this movie worth watching.

A very humorous movie with a great family message woven in with the story of Noah. Definitely do not have to watch Bruce Almighty to enjoy this movie. Preteen friendly.
