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>

Camp with a budget
17 January 2008 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

This literally reminds me of skits put together at summer camp. The stories are so ridiculous, it's as if they were written by people who never actually expected them to make it to a big screen.

But alas here they are, in a pretty decent-looking production, no less. Nothing B-movie or low-budget about it. Well, about its looks, anyway.

Where this movie really "shines", though, is in the acting. Not only did this movie somehow attract a fair amount of A-list talent, but these actors really gave of it, considering the material they were handed. Extra points go to Winona Ryder, who was an especially good sport, shoving her tongue into the mouth of a wooden puppet and all.

Basically my 7 score is based on the fact that I had at least a smile on throughout most of this movie. Seeing all these big names, all perfectly willing to "lower" themselves to the level of this material, just really renewed my faith in humanity.
