Evan Almighty

Evan (Steve Carell) gets all the animals and all the people nearby on the ark when the water from the dam (that Congressman Long (John Goodman) built) ruptures. The ark makes its way to the Capitol building right in the nick of time before the new law on land and property gets passed. Evan stops Congressman Long and he's arrested. Some time later, Evan is with his family on a hike and talks with God (Morgan Freeman). God tells Evan that by building the ark and uniting people, he changed the world. During the end credits, the cast and crew dance to C+C Music Factory's "Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)"

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie when Evan and God are talking under a tree in a field, God is holding a wooden staff. As the camera cuts back and forth between Evan and God, God's hand changes position from holding the top of the staff like a cane to holding the staff further down like a walking stick.

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.

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.
