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>

Worth seeing
30 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

The movie has some lines that rival chapellesque potential for repetition. One of the ten vignettes (with cordry/marino) will have you laughing for fifteen minutes straight. the movie definitely features a couple weak ones, but overall if you liked "the state" or "wet hot American summer" or have even the slightest sense of humor, you will really like this movie. Finally a comedy with out the farrelly same old bs.

It starts off slow, there's no denying that. and paul rudd is not as funny as he could be, but the juxtaposition with the reality of the narration with the absolute ridiculousness of the stories works well. its like all the big names that you expected to deliver the huge performances don't come through as strongly, though winona delivers well (as usual).

Definitely see it in the movies, its an experience.
