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.

A few laughs here and there. It's one of those movies that you probably won't watch over and over again, but it was a pretty funny. It's worth watching just for Lou Ferrigno choking out Andy Dick if nothing else.

This movie is just as well made and hilarious as the Christopher Guest mockumentaries (Best In Show, Waiting For Guffman), but never got the buzz of those movies. Two earnest young men with a string of mildly successful B movies (such as Nude Ninjas)behind them decide they are ready for the Big Time, and convince a studio to back their filming of the Bible. Everything that could go wrong, does, from an Eve with a huge tattoo to an Ark that won't fit in the sound stage. Unable to attract A-list stars, they settle for Soupy Sales as Moses and Eve Plumb (Jan on The Brady Bunch) as Noah's wife. Andy Dick and Lou Ferrigno play Cain and Abel, if you can believe that. Things go from bad to worse as the studio pulls its support, but they soldier on, and a surprise ending makes it all worth while.

I am a huge film comedy fan (who isn't) and I watch a lot of them provided they don't feature certain popular "funnymen" who I don't happen to find funny. It's a mystery to me that until several hours ago I never heard of this film, and actually stumbled across it on amazon streaming. I have friends who tip me to good comedies that I might otherwise overlook and nobody, so far as I recall, ever mentioned this one to me. As much as I dislike cliches, it really is "non-stop laughter". When you think about it afterward, its hilarity doesn't really derive from the script, which is funny but not among the funniest stuff you've ever heard. What makes this film is the attitude of the early 90s, carrying over from the 80s send-ups, that comedy doesn't hit you over the head, it gently tickles your ribs. And what a treat to see Soupy Sales. Didn't realize how much I missed that imp.
