|The whole premise of the movie seems rather bizarre: a light-hearted romp through God's wrath. I'd love to see a comedy about Judges, Deuteronomy, or the book of Job. (Although the Brick Testament did that somewhat already).|
There's a couple of good discussions on Slate already about this, but I think the book sums it up the best:
| Genesis 6:7:|
Yahweh said, 'I shall destroy humankind, whom I have created, from the face of the earth -- humankind, as well as animals, creeping things, and birds of the sky. For I am sorry that I have made them.'
Well... you can highlight the SPOILER text below to see what actually happens at the end. Mind you I haven't actually seen the film, but I did find out about the ending:
At the end of the film, a poorly-constructed dam breaks and floods the neighborhood. But at this point all of the people are on the ark, so nobody dies. They ride out the "local flood" and everyone survives.
