A documentary on the making of a big budget Bible picture. This is a spoof that shows the inside action on a film set where everything that could possibly go wrong goes wrong. Written by

"It can still be a classic even if its not an epic."
I saw this film in a theater and wasn't expecting much. It turned out to be one of the funniest films of the 90's and by the time the Nude Ninjas appeared, I was already on the floor.
"...And God Spoke" is really one of the funniest parodies of the motion picture industry ever. A former b-film director and his egotistical, sleaze-ball producer decide to adapt the entire Bible into a lavish epic because of its popularity, despite the fact that they vaguely know how many disciples Jesus had and have to rely on product placements from Coke for extra funding. Not to spoil it, but the film they eventually make turns out as a kind of blasphemous Rocky Horror Picture Show that you have to see to believe.
Andy Dick as Abel and Lou Ferrigno as Cain are hysterical. Dick: "I get killed?!?" As a film maker and former Catholic schoolboy I found it all too hysterical though it may help to know something about the Bible and the film industry to get the most mileage out of it.
Speaking of Spinal Tap, I hated that film. Christopher Guest's humour is way too gentle for my tastes and I've never been a big Rob Reiner fan either. This film and "Fear of A Black Hat" are my two favorite mockumentaries of all time.
