Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Evan Almighty...
While terms of Deity are used most often in reference to Divinity, some profane usages are included along with mild sexual innuendo. During the building of the ark, Evan suffers multiple construction-related injuries. Defecating birds and spitting alpacas are portrayed for comedy. Other jokes involve the discussion of a male animal’s anatomy, a dog that repeatedly attacks a man’s groin area and Evan’s naked appearance in public (no nudity is seen).
