Product Description

No one will mistake Jeff Reigert (Paul Rudd) for Moses or even Charlton Heston, but they all have something in common. Like Moses and Heston, Jeff's job is to introduce the world to the Ten Commandments. But, in David Wain's loopy comedy The Ten, he is not exactly the picture of virtue...In fact, surrounded as he is by gigantic replicas of the famous stone tablets, the genial host to this special presentation is so busy juggling wife Gretchen (Famke Janssen) and girlfriend (Jessica Alba) that he can barely get through a single commandment without breaking one himself. But that venality is part of the charm of this amiable, outrageous and frequently hilarious biblical parody. Wain and Marino use the commandments as an excuse to indulge in ridiculous, often surreal and sometimes tasteless humor... it lives up to the one unbendable commandment of comedy: It's funny. - Pam Grady, San Francisco Chronicle

This movie is comprised of 10 sketches that contain the absurdity of The State and the hilarity of Wet Hot American Summer. The sketches are not all winners but the great ones have Liev Schreiber bringing his AMAZING talent to a crazy situation, Rob Cordry as a lovable rapist and a great great "foreign" film. It's pretty hilarious.
This movie is no Wet Hot American Summer--but what is? There are some AMAZING parts of it and Paul Rudd has a great through line and continues to impress. Some great walk-ons and some great freakouts. I highly recommend it if you like The State.

Look, I can understand this isn't everyone's type of humor, but it should be. It's absurdly hilarious. Not all the sketches are equally funny, but they add up to being almost as good as Wet Hot. If you liked Wet Hot, and you should, then you'll like this.

In a mass-media, mass-consumption, perpetual self-improvement society, a whole bunch of "Thou shalt nots..." are rather passe' (to say the least.) This movie had about 25-30 laugh-out-loud moments in a 75% full theater. Each of the 10 sketches has elements of bad taste (of course) along the lines of South Park / Family Guy / Reno 9-11 / Daily Show, but in the end a laugh is a laugh is a laugh. The cast includes some big-time heavy-hitters: the shocking Justin Theroux as Our Lord (who will 'get around to' the Apocalypse... eventually) and the hillarious Rob Cordry as a prisoner who seeks true 'love'. ...Only for the well-read, open minded, movie-goer who is repelled by political correctness. Gretchen Mol, Winona Ryder and Jessica Alba never looked better.

I find the term "genius" to be overused to the point of meaninglessness, but after experiencing the comic extravagansa that is "The Ten" that is the term that begs to be used.

I've had in my life of watching movies only a handful of times where the lights come up afterward and I feel like I've had an out-of-body experience: laughing so hard I'm in tears, taken for a ride to comic heights as I was in the hands of these master filmmakers.

The film is divided into ten stories, loosely based on each of the Ten Commandments. This clever device serves perfectly, as every style fully explores its premise and style without overstaying its welcome, leaving you wanting just a little bit more, then we're onto the next. But the Ten Commandments theme informs all the stories, and various characters and jokes brilliantly overlap and reappear.

The movie is held together by the endlessly appealing Paul Rudd ("Knocked Up"), who plays a sort of MC, trying as he might to present the ten stories, only to be distracted by tumultuous personal life, involving his wife (Famke Janssen in a startling wonderful comic turn) and a younger woman (Jessica Alba, stealing scenes as the perky Liz Anne Blazer).

The interstitial segments with Mr. Rudd would alone be worth the price of admission, but there are dozens of scenes that will go down in our collective memories as classic moments in movie comedy, executed by a veritable who's who of top movie and comedy stars, including Adam Brody, Bobby Cannavale, Rob Corddry, Kerri Kenney-Silver, Ken Marino, A. D. Miles, Gretchen Mol, Oliver Platt, Paul Rudd, Winona Ryder, Liev Schreiber, Ron Silver, Jason Sudeikis, Justin Theroux, Joe Lo Truglio, Mather Zickel, Michael Ziegfeld and more.

There are many mediocre films in the world. And then there are brilliant ones. Often the brilliant films are ones of which it is said "Either you'll love it or you'll hate it." This is said frequently of trademark filmmakers like Wes Anderson, Sofia Coppola, and Darren Aronofsky.

I hesitate to include David Wain in the class with the above, because he certainly doesn't subscribe himself to a league of serious artists. But his works (Stella, Wet Hot American Summer, The State, and The Ten) do have a trademark to them, a quite brilliant one. I've tried to give serious thought to what it is that makes his films work so well, and finally settled that it is a brilliant mix of the dedicated parody and the absurd non sequitur.

In his work we often see him take a cinematic staple and put it to the situational test. In "The Ten" we are given multiple treatments of a traditional story with a situational twist: a young man's values are put to the test when he becomes a Hollywood superstar; two sons wonder about their true father; lovers fall apart as one of them begins to fall for another. In the hands of filmmakers over time these stories have been given a genre treatment that has led to certain expectations. We expect the sweeping musical score, the intense close up, the slow motion, the emotional dialogue. In the hands of Wain the sequence is the same, but the situational elements are turned on their head.
