Having recovered from wounds received in a failed rescue operation, Navy SEAL Shane Wolfe is handed a new assignment: Protect the five Plummer kids from enemies of their recently deceased father -- a government scientist whose top-secret experiment remains in the kids' house.
Buffalo newsman Evan Baxter is elected to Congress with the slogan, "Change the world." He lucks into a huge house in a new Virginia suburb. His Capitol office is also fantastic, but there's a catch: he's tapped by the powerful Congressman Long to co-sponsor a bill to allow development in national parks. In steps God, who appears to a disbelieving Evan and gently commands him to build an ark. Tools and wood arrive in Evan's yard, animal pairs follow, his beard and hair grow wildly, nomad's clothes and a staff appear. Long grows impatient, Evan starts building, his family leaves him, reporters gather, and drought grips D.C. Still, Evan believes. But will he change the world?Written by
The movie was filmed in Virginia in the hottest part of summer - so hot, in fact, that more than one extra fainted from sun exposure. Dry Virginia orange-colored dirt is visible in exterior Ark scenes, yet the Baxter's house right next door has a lush and perfect inch-high green lawn. Simple: it's Astroturf. Broom-wielding crew occasionally swept dusty orange footprints off of the Baxters' plastic grass. See more »

And that's the news. But before we sign off, we'd like to thank our very own Evan Baxter, who has just been elected Buffalo's representative to Congress. And now we have a surprise for Evan.
No, you don't.
Oh, no. I really didn't expect this.
Here's a look back at his run for office.

I saw an advanced preview. A sequel to 'Bruce Almighty', A workaholic Dad and husband becomes a congressman and moves to a peaceful little rich town. At work there's something fishy and its 'wolf' eat 'wolf'. He prays to fulfil his campaign promise - to change the world. Weird things start happening to him including goafer wood being dropped outside his house and Gen 614 turning up everywhere. When he sees God himself (Morgan freeman) he thinks hes gone nuts, especially when God tells him to build an ark as a flood is coming. Evan is unwilling to do it but after a little 'persuasion' from God almost involving him getting fired from work, Evan agrees. This is a very sweet and funny film, it is especially heart-warming seeing Evan spending time with his kids building the ark and the animals joining in to help. It has a very moral message: Trust in God. The slight twist at the end helps to enforce this. Was slow and corny at times but still an entertaining film for all the family. :)
