Reitman used to make movies that reveled in the rambunctious; Evolutionis merely stale, sterile, and, worst of all, safe. It's a hodgepodge of undercooked notions and overused plots -- a greatest hits made up entirely of misses. How is one supposed to feel good about watching a film that reduces Julianne Moore, as an epidemiologist working for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, to a sight gag? Every time she enters a room or gets out of a car, she trips and falls on her face; she might as well not be in the film at all. And pity Orlando Jones, who spends one scene lying on his stomach on a gurney, having an alien insect extracted from his colon with a pair of medieval forceps. It's rather appropriate, actually: The whole film looks to have been pulled out of someone's ass.
