Evan Almighty

The blame of bad behavior from the youths usually befallen to the shoulders of Hollywood movies. I didn't say that the place that churned out hundreds kinds of entertainment is as clean as a virgin gadis desa, it sure had it share of spreading sins to mankind, like promoting slaughtering baddies by guns is heroic and cool awesome, and you can do whatever you think is right to do (like killing babies), and you can fuck any hot girl or guy anytime you like (they have schedule you know), or anything (I sooo can think many more durty thoughts-like Britney Spears here, showing some class).

I also think that Hollywood manage to make people think and be a better person as well.

I just watched the latest Evan Almighty (download here), the sequel to the 2003 Bruce Almighty. Still keeping the holy-thing theme, it follows a journey of a newly elected congressman Evan Baxter, who was told by the God to built an ark. Like Noah kinda ark. He faced many challenges on the course of completing the mission, like the animals which always follow his tail, his doubting wife, the beard and hair that keep growing although it was shaved over and over again, and being ridicule by the people. He was told that a major flood will come, in the middle of DC, in a drought season. SO you can imagine what he has to endure although it was very, very funny.

As I watch this film, I was feeling kinda awkward. It is funny but it kinda mimic the hardships of Prophet Noah had to endure. It feels like laughing at a teaching teacher. I laughed nonetheless.

I can quote so many good lines from this movie. One thing that stick in my mind is,
"When you pray for patience, God don't give you patience, He give you the opportunity of being patience,
If you pray for courage, God don't give you courage, He give you the opportunity of being courage,
And when you pray you family being close together, He don't give you a warm fuzzy feeling, He give you the opportunity of being close together..."
I mean, I know that its Morgan Freeman talking but don't it just so true? How many time we prayed and thought that our prayers wasn't answered?

OK, let me give you the core morale of the movie: if you want to change the world, you can start by performing an Act of Random Kindness.
Get it?
Act of
Haha! Nice pun!

Although it bordered a faith theme, it is not a dogma kinda film. I mean c'mon, Steve Carell as Noah? That fuzzy fur ball is so funny, people will laugh their ass off as soon as he open his mouth. But teaching people through comedy is way effective than lecturing them by poyo serious way.
