God (Morgan Freeman) appears to newly-elected congressman Evan Baxter (Carrell) and instructs him to build an ark. Evan resists, but animals start following him (in pairs), so he begins work on the big boat in the expectation that a flood will come.
As modern-day re-stagings of Bible stories go, this is oddly less funny than The Reaping. Next time, for real laughs, do the story of Job.
