In Evan Almighty, when the Good Lord (Morgan Freeman) rounds up dozens of species for his latter-day Noah, Evan Baxter, to take into a contemporary ark, he doesn't provide any turkeys.

Evan Almighty (Universal Pictures) Starring Steve Carell, Morgan Freeman, Lauren Graham, John Goodman. Directed by Tom Shadyac. Rated PG. Time 95 minutes.
