5.0 out of 5 stars ...And God Laughed March 16, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
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.

Format:VHS Tape
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars "...And God Spoke" spoke to ME! June 28, 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most underrated film in the history of cinema June 24, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars chronicles the troubled production of filmmakers June 1, 2006
Format:DVD
Arthur Bowman's mockumentary chronicles the troubled production of filmmakers Clive Walton (Michael Riley) and Marvin Handleman's (Stephen Rappaport) biblical epic, ...AND GOD SPOKE. Playing like a THIS IS SPINAL TAP for the indie movie crowd, Bowman's film is a witty farce which undoubtedly inspired films like LIVING IN OBLIVION, THE INDEPENDENT, HOLLYWOOD NORTH, and THE REAL OLD TESTAMENT.

Rather than setting Clive and Marvin up for eventual failure, the audience is made privy to their previous stellar achievements (DIAL "S" FOR SEX and NUDE NINJAS). We know that these guys are clueless as they wax philosophic about the built-in audience for a Bible picture ("You can't lose adapting that book"). While the initial draft of their script came in at over two thousand pages, Clive and Martin cut out some of the slower moving scenes from Acts and Deuteronomy.

Between the dysfunctional crew led by assistant director Bob (Michael Hitchcock of BEST IN SHOW fame) and the never-ending incompetence (only eight disciples have been cast), the studio bankrolling...AND GOD SPOKE quickly loses the confidence in the production. Reminiscent of the Exodus, Moses soon becomes the last, best hope for Clive and Marvin. Putting in an incredible performance as the liberator of the Israelites, Soupy Sales nearly steals the show from his perch on Mount Sinai's stand-in.

Other highlights include the overly-choreographed fight between Cain (Lou Ferrigno) and Abel (Andy Dick), the savvy dialogue ("Doing the Bible without Jesus is like doing FITZCARRALDO without the boat!") and the oddly familiar faces of the cast (look for Chris Kattan as a disappointed movie patron and Leonard Walsh, the unofficial spokesman for Wendy's, as an obsessive caterer). ...AND GOD SPOKE is a movie made for movie lovers.
