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>

Better than the rating in here should imply.
14 June 2015 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Now, I don't have that much to say about this movie, I write this review to say that the IMDb-score is too low.

Here is what I think happened with this. The Tens make fun of Christianity, therefore a lot of people rate it low. Don't listen to these humorless people.

The Tens is not laugh out loud-funny every single second, but it is definitely a piece of light entertainment, good for a couple of laughs. To most people at least.

There are several segments here and hey vary in quality, but overall this is, like I just said, light entertainment. Some of the segments are kind of strange, not everyone likes that.

Paul Rudd is funny and it was after seeing this that I started liking him. Not that I didn't like him before, but you know. Liked him better.

I think I might even see it another time, some time in the future. I can't say that about all comedies!
