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>

Indy Int'l Film Fest - KUDOS!
29 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

Man I love it when a movie kicks the crap out of me with laughter. This was a good time. A couple walkouts were serenaded by the hysterics of everyone around me -- that's how you know it's good. People who can't laugh at a movie making fun of the general terribleness of most movies should be lonely forever. The 'straight' actors in this had the dedication of kamikaze pilots. Liev Schriever should be given whatever's just above an Oscar -- so, like, Wendy's coupons. He is brilliant. Winona Ryder should be given coupons as well. She completely embarrasses herself in the funniest sex scene anyone has ever conceived. Body Heat ain't got nothing' on Miss Ryder. Really, if you like any State-stuff or genuinely like Monty Python, there's no reason you won't get your money's worth.
