Evan Almighty

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.

Question: Can anyone tell me where to find a list of ALL the music used in the movie? I'm looking for stuff that's NOT on the soundtrack.

Answer: All the music is listed in the ending credits of the movie.

Answer: When using IMDB, make sure you are using the "full site" and not the mobile version. At the top, above the movie/show title, click "more." Under "did you know?" click "soundtracks" (this list all the recorded songs used in the film, not just the songs on the soundtrack album). However, it often does not include incidental music, which is the background music or song created just for the film to create a mood, tone, or theme. Although often theme music that is later recorded and released will be listed on IMDB's page even though they didn't appear in the original credits, the same way (uncredited) actors are listed on the site.

Answer: You can also find the titles of the songs at IMDB. An online movie database.

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.

Question: How come not a single person saw that Evan managed to "change his clothes" instantly? There were people sat behind him looking straight at him. Wouldn't they see him in his suit one second, blink and then see him in the robes? They all laughed and thought he was crazy but surely they all saw him come in wearing the suit and it's not like you could miss someone getting changed.

Answer: God wanted to see what he wanted them to see, to believe in something you can't believe requires faith.

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.
