Ok, so maybe I will go see it

I just finished reading a review of Evan Almighty on Catholic Exchange-
Conversing Over Comedy: The Invitation of Evan Almighty

In it he talks about both the positive Christian messages it presents about God, and how it gets a couple of points of theology wrong. The kicker is though, that Hollywood so seldom even tries to do movies with positive Christian messages about prayer and God that even when it gets a few things wrong it's still an opportunity to open conversation with our friends and neighbors. Not knowing the entirety of the plot, I was initially turned off by the whole idea of a second ark and flood, since God clearly told Noah that he would never do that again. But, that is a point I could bring up when talking about the film, how God DOES keep his promises.

So, have any of you seen the film? What do you think of it?
