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>

Best film I have seen in a long time
28 March 2007 | by See all my reviews

I saw this film at the Cleveland Film Festival this past weekend I thought this was by far the best film I have seen in a long time. I laughed the entire time and there wasn't a boring part. This movie never slowed down. Each of the ten stories was brilliantly written and the cast was great! I liked that each of the story was totally off the wall and didn't follow the "traditional" meanings of the ten commandments. I absolutely love this film! I recommend everyone to see this film when/if it comes out to the mainstream. I thought Paul Rudd was great as the the narrator. I wish there would have been more scenes with Wynnona Rider and Adam Brody. Famke Jenssesn's roll was brilliant. I think anything David Wain does is great and I can't wait to see his next project.
