Storyline

Quirky inter-related stories. Standing by two tablets, Jeff promises to introduce ten short stories, each about one of the commandments. A man survives a fall from a plane and his fiancée marries someone else before falling in love with a marionette; a surgeon causes the death of a patient and in prison tries to choose his mate; a woman encounters Jesus in Mexico and later confronts her husband on the Sabbath; twins and their mother reflect on fatherhood; covetous neighbors miss a chance to be heroes; and, between each story, Jeff's love triangle with Gretchen and Liz plays out. In the end, all the characters join in singing that it's all about love. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Hilarious
29 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

This is the kind of script that rarely sees the light of day, containing more controversy than the average viewer, producer or actor is willing to handle.

In other words, I think it's a miracle this rare comedy gem got made.

It is made of short stories that stand on their own and yet make a part of a bigger one. All jokes are played with a straight face (Airplane style) which makes them so much more hilarious. The take on the meaning of commandments rivals observations made by George Carlin.

I discovered the movie accidentally while tracking Liev Schreiber's film career and couldn't be happier.

One recommendation. You have to be a hardcore atheist and generally open-minded in order to enjoy this film. If you are touchy about religion, watch Passion or The Last Temptation. This is not your film.

The movie isn't trying to be offensive, yet I can see it offending many viewers. Don't let the low rating fool you. It's a 9.0 grade film, if you are in the right mindset.
