Steve Carell's heartwarming turn as a newly-elected congressman who is forced to put his priorities in order is guaranteed to bring a smile -- and perhaps make you (and the kids!) think twice about the good deeds you can do when it comes to family members and coworkers and the neighbors down the block. And, of course, the animals!
