I can’t remember the last time we went OUT to see a movie, but hubby and I slipped out last night to go see EVAN ALMIGHTY. The verdict? It’s not a “Christian” movie–but if you can swallow the premise that God would appear as Morgan Freeman, it’s very cute. Funny and clean enough for even the little ones. An adorable film.
As entertaining as it was–and it WAS–I just couldn’t help feeling rueful that the gospel had been supplanted by a feel-good, “save the planet” message. It’s one of those movies I would take my kids to see, and then I’d tell them the message God REALLY wants us to share.
