One of the 10 best films on my list.
Goro Asakuma
It's a consistently funny look at moviemaking behind the scenes when everything that can go wrong does.

If I could, I'd give this "movie" one tenth of a star!

I had heard about this film for a long time. Then, after I finally got the video from this fine website, I settled down to watch it. I laughed out loud!
It's the story of a team of independent filmmakers who decide to make a Biblical epic as their next movie. Having Soupy Sales as Moses, Eve Plumb, ("The Brady Bunch"), as Mrs. Noah, and Lou Ferrigno ("The Incredible Hulk") as Cain, everything that can go wrong, does go wrong.
A laugh-riot, "And God Spoke" is also a good insight on the world of independent filmmaking. I highly recommend it, and wish I could give it more than just five stars.

This is a hilarious mock documentary on the filming of a Bible movie that goes all wrong. That is the plot, but that is only the spine that holds all the gags together. The characters are the main attraction here.
Clive Walton (the "director") and Marvin Handleman (the "producer") are from the start obviously not fit to handle this kind of undertaking--their previous films were all bad genre flicks. But Marvin thinks that this will be a great idea because of the target audience ("the biggest selling book in the world times seven dollars a ticket...you do the math"). The caterer designs refreshments that follow the biblical theme (rolls and Pepperidge Farm Goldfish for the "loaves and fishes" motif, and a cooler labeled "Wine" that he says is "really just water"); "Adam" is a method actor who walks around the set nude; and "Eve" has a full-body tattoo. Not to mention the cinematographer who thinks he is shooting a Bergman film, "God" played by a tripped-out ex-hippie, Eve Plumb from The Brady Bunch as "Mrs. Noah," and Soupy Sales as "Moses" (who receives Coca-Cola in addition to Commandments from the mountaintop).
It's a consistently funny look at moviemaking behind the scenes when everything that can go wrong does. It has become a fixture in our household, along with Waiting for Guffman (which is as insightful on its own subject). Fans of the one should enjoy the other.

Great little sleeper of a movie that seems to be gaining cult status. When Matthew Perry ("Friends") was once asked about "Waiting for Guffman" (another mockumentary released about the same time) he said there a much funnier one out there called... you guessed it..."...And God Spoke." Well-written, with a lot of inside jokes about the kind of very low-level Hollywood film-making you don't hear much about on ET... the straight to video kind...that will still amuse people not "in the business."
When two extremely low budget film-makers are suddenly blessed with a $40 million dollar budget to make a Biblical Epic for a major studio, they find themselves WAY over their heads at the first call of "ACTION!" It's all downhill from there (for them, not for the audience) Extremely well-written, hilarious movie, adequately directed. Got kind of lost in the bigger press surrounding "Guffman," but like I said, seems to be gaining a large cult following.

I am proud of myself being one of the few audience who have actually seen this little gem at a movie theater in Westwood, California in the early 90s. This movie knocked me out. Totally original, actually this is the first film that I saw claimed to be a "mocumentary." I just loved it. One of the 10 best films on my list. I loved every actor in the film. If you have experience on movie sets, you will understand what this film is talking about. There are movies on Hollywood" or "filmmaking," such as "The Player""The Big Picture." This one is better than those. Shame it's not available on DVD.

I won't bother to summarize the plot, but I will say a few things.
It's not a perfect film...a few things (the studio exec, the cop) don't ring true. However, those things aside, I love this film.
It's a hilarious mockumentary detailing the making of a Bible movie by two Jewish filmmakers. This minor detail is never mentioned in the movie, but it informs a lot of what happens, such as no one knowing how many disciples Jesus had.
Basically, it goes like this: if you like satire and witty dialogue, you'll like this film. I'd reccomend it to fans of movies as diverse as the Player and Dogma. If you like big slapstick comedies, avoid this like plague.
Personally I like both. But a friend who loves the Farrelly brothers above all things found it boring. So be warned, grasshopper, before taking a plunge into 'the greatest non-denominational bible story ever filmed. Special discounts for religious groups."

Anyone who has dreamt of trying to direct or produce his or her own film will appreciate this little gem. It's not hard to see a little bit of the vanity of your own dreams in the two lead characters. What is amazing is the fact that these guys are setting out to make a 'Biblical Epic' and neither of them has apparently ever picked up a Bible! This makes for some very funny and embarrassing moments in the film. I found myself laughing out loud at the filmmakers, while still having a great deal of empathy for them. The movie has a (kind of) great surprise ending also. Definitely worth the ten dollar admission price.
