Evan Baxter (Creatod/SteveCarell), Bruce's rival from the first film, becomes a congressman and moves to Washington D.C. where {{God}} (Creator/MorganFreeman) forces him to become the next Noah, presumably to save people (and animals) from the next Flood. This causes people, even his family, to think he's going crazy.

* ArtisticLicenseReligion: Besides the use of "works in mysterious ways", at the end of the Great Flood God had promised to never flood the entire world ever again. It's subverted because[[spoiler: although a global flood was implied, it was actually localised and not global (even if it did make a temporary ''inland sea''. Besides, God didn't cause it; man did.]]

* ShoutOut: Coupled with ActorAllusion, Jon Stewart and ''Series/TheDailyShow'' make a cameo appearance making fun of Evan. Carrell started off as a corresponant for ''The Daily Show'' along with Stephen Colbert in the "Steve and Steve" segment.



* TookALevelInJerkass: God's behaviour towards Evan is often bordering on downright ''[[KarmicTrickster cruel]]'', compared to the TricksterMentor he was to Bruce in the first film. At least he didn't make Bruce and the people in his life, question whether Bruce was losing his grip on reality, whereas Evan often is forced to look utterly ''insane''.
