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>

Indulgent, unfocused and shallow- still through the eyes of a decent comic though
14 January 2008 | by oneloveallSee all my reviews

Disappointingly unfulfilled comedy from talented comedian David Wain sadly plays out like ten glorified sketches, in a larger budget, with less of a scope. The undercooked way that Paul Rudd clumsily narrates his way through these half-baked stories feels vacant enough, but almost all of these brief segments written to underscore each individual commandment in a humorous light fails to engage as well. As unique and perceptive as Wain and company's humor tends to be, this project simply pales in comparison to the modest cult success which was Wain's previous feature film Wet Hot American Summer.

Here the segments just kind of drift by with a hollow sort of pace, occasionally pulling out an impressive joke or two along the way, but feels so content to treat itself like the low-grade project it feels of that The Ten misses many opportunities presented and fails to transcend it's tele-vision roots.
