Evan Almighty

Trivia: The book Evan gets his instructions from (Ark Building For Dummies) is an actual book which has been published! Mainly as a joke.

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.

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?

Question: The deadline for finishing the ark is September 22nd. Is there any particular reason why this date was used?

Answer: The Biblical new year began on the autumnal equinox, which falls on or around that date. The ancient Hebrews strove to get all their work done before the end of the year, to prepare for the High Holy Days that followed.
