'Evan Almighty' sails to box office title. Others portray the $32 mln take as a box office disaster especially since $175 mln was spent to make the movie which is distributed by Universal Picture (GE): Weekend Box Office: 'Evan Almighty' Runs Aground at Box Office.
How out of touch am I with tv and movies in general? I didn't even know who Steve Carell was until this weekend. I took my children to see "Evan" yesterday and I find it hard to believe they spent so much to make what was amusing, but nothing special kind of flick. I'm a big Morgan Freeman fan and he did a fine job in the film. I'm looking forward to his portrayal of Nelson Mandela: Morgan Freeman to play Nelson Mandela in new movie.
