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>

The Ten is barely a ONE...
13 August 2007 | by keith-215See all my reviews

Once upon a time there was a good movie called 10. They should have borrowed on that title and call it "1". As it is the worst thing someone put on the screen. To call it a 'comedy' is a big stretch, nothing at all is funny in that silly movie. It looks like a high school production, and its amazing how some of the actors agreed to be in it. The humor is juvenile, and it is just pure silly. I can't see it even as a cult movie at midnight.... There are really not enough negative comments to say to describe this total waste of time, and money...how they got the funding is a mystery...did anyone read that? Save time, money and stamps before you go see this ONE.....
