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

This mockumentary begins decently with an interview with the directors, who establish amusing, neurotic characters and show some of their early, horrible work. It's kind of cute, but over the next half hour, before I gave up, that was the only amusing scene in the movie.
While it wouldn't matter if the film were actually entertaining, I'd like to point out that the premise doesn't make a lot of sense. These guys are established as z-movie makers who have put out a series of low budget, profitable films. So why is it that they suddenly are unable to keep to a schedule or get their actors together or even get usable footage? Yes, it could be that they had taken on something so huge that they overextended themselves, but the movie doesn't really show that, which is a shame, because that would have had the potential to be funny. This would have made more sense if they were shown as novice filmmakers.
The best parts of the movie were the little clips of terrible filmmaking strewn throughout, especially Jesus on the Water. The filmmakers would have been better off making a purposely bad movie than attempting to make a good mockumentary.
