Corrected entry: Near the end just before the flood, the order is given to destroy the ark and the crane moves in. They couldn't destroy the ark there and then because of all the people and animals on board.

Correction: At this point they are just using a scare tactic to get them off the arc. They were not going to put the people's lives or that of the animals in danger. If they actually started demolishing the arc then this could be a mistake.


Corrected entry: In the scene before Evan's wife takes away his kids. Evan parks in the U shaped driveway, his Hummer is the only car in the driveway, but when the wife comes outside with their kids her car is also there.

Correction: Actually the other family car is there as Evan pulls the Hummer into the driveway. It is just that is a dark colored car in a not well lighted portion of the driveway. It is there but you have to look carefully.

Corrected entry: When Evan is at his office, you can see a crew member reflected on the door of his office.


Correction: There are a number of shots in which Evan is "at his office". Please resubmit this mistake with more specific information as to which scene the reflection of the crew member is visible.

Corrected entry: The steps up to Evans house change. In the scene where he discovers the tools, they are two sets of small steps with a handrail, but when he comes down the steps naked, there are just three steps with no rail.

Correction: Evan was using different entrances/exits in his house.

Corrected entry: The fish in the tank shouldn't be attracted to him. If the dam would break, the fish wouldn't be harmed because the flood would be freshwater, since it's from a lake.

Correction: All God says is that a flood is coming; he never gives details of what that flood will entail. It's assumed by Evan that the flood will be of Biblical proportions; there's no reason to suggest that the animals who are drawn to him know any different. As the fish don't know that it's just going to be a dam break, it's natural that they would be drawn to Evan to save them from what they think is coming.

Corrected entry: I find it funny that fish are attracted to Evan. Are they attracted to him because they want him to save them from the flood? They're fish and the last time I checked, fish could breathe underwater.

Jack Kaltenbach

Correction: It's freshwater fish that have the problem - if the oceans rise up then their habitat will become saltwater, and they can't survive in a marine environment, so it makes perfect sense that they would flock to Evan to save them.

Corrected entry: When Evan goes to the congress meeting, after he has changed to his "Metrosexual" look with his pony tail on his beard and hair, he is asked to stand up to show support for the new bill. When he stands up it brings a close up to the face for the obvious reasons of re-doing his hair to the "Noah" look. However after the gasp from the audience implying that this change by God has already happened, he makes a slight turn and you can plainly see the original pony tail on his hair still there.

Correction: Evans clothes also changed from the suit to the robe,there is no indication that they happened at the same time,so the gasp could be for the changing of the buisness suit to the robe -not the hair and beard changes.

Corrected entry: Evan resigns as a newsreader when he is elected to Congress. That can't happen. The US has very strict rules regarding television exposure of candidates for political office, even if it is not campaign related. If the television channel for which Evan works continued to use him as a newsreader, by law they would have to offer free airtime of equal duration to his opponents. He'd have to resign or take leave of absence as soon as he announced his candidacy.

Correction: Just because the station would have to offer free time, doesn't mean the opposing candidate would have to take it. We don't see if his opponent took it or not.


Continuity mistake: During the flood, if you look at the clothes of the people on the ark, they are completely dry, despite several waves crashing over the boat, soaking them.

God: Let me ask you something. If someone prays for patience, you think God gives them patience? Or does he give them the opportunity to be patient? If he prayed for courage, does God give him courage, or does he give him opportunities to be courageous? If someone prayed for the family to be closer, do you think God zaps them with warm fuzzy feelings, or does he give them opportunities to love each other?

Trivia: There are multiple scenes in the movie showing the ark being built, and standing on land waiting for the flood. All of these shots of the ark before the flood was a real, life-size ark, built for this movie.

More trivia for Evan Almighty

Question: What was the bill, if passed, going to do? The one Long kept trying to pass and convince (The Senate I believe) the other congressmen to pass.

Answer: With it, Long would have been able to destroy the land, create another dam and get more houses built. However, like the first dam, he would have cut corners which would cause the new dam to eventually break.

They were members of the house of representatives.
