Harvey and Zoey, two tourists travelling through Israel, discover an ancient scroll describing the life of Herschel, the man who was almost Moses. Herschel receives the command from God to free his people from Egyptian slavery, but Moses keeps blundering by and taking all the credit. Several other biblical stories, such as Lot and his wife, David and Goliath, and the miracles of Jesus, are also parodied in this story of the life of a man trying to follow the path to God, but somehow always seeming to lose his way.

Actress Laraine Newman said considerable credit must go to her co-star Dudley Moore for keeping the morale up on the set. "There was one night when everything went wrong . . . a break-away wall refused to break away . . . - and we all had to cancel our supper plans to shoot past midnight," she recalls. "I figured, 'Here it comes ~ We've had fun 'til now. But this is when tempers snap!'. I'm sure Dudley sensed the tension, because suddenly, during a break, he became a new character, a broken-down Shakespearean actor, reminiscing about his past glories. "It was absurd, hilarious, and totally ad lib. He just babbled on. But no one minded working late". See more »

An entertaining satirical comedy to relax and tickle you.
I really liked this movie! It's a light satirical comedy. It doesn't try to be academy award material with a heavy story, overpowering special effects, or raw suspense, that seem to be the requirement to impress critics today. This movie achieves its goal very well; a couple of hours of zany humor. The comedic acting is very good, with a notable scene by Richard Pryor as Pharaoh. I really enjoyed Dudley Moore, Laraine Newman, and James Coco in this movie. There are also several funny celebrity cameos. The directing, film editing, camera work, and soundtrack were also very good. The humor has occasional adult content. If you want a break from heavy Hollywood blockbusters, and just want to enjoy an afternoon of chuckles and light humor, I recommend this movie.
