Netflix: The Ten

Year: 2007
Director: David Wain
Whose Netflix Queue: Jon's


Allie's Review:

Rating - 3.5 out of 5

Jon and I were looking for a movie to watch while we wait for out next Netfilx dvds to arrive in the mail. Netfilx has some movies streaming online, so we sorta randomly picked one, and that's how we ended up watching "The Ten."

"The Ten" is a completely wacky movie made up of 10 small stories, each one loosely based on each of the 10 commandments. Each story is about one of the commandments, just in a totally strange or backwards way. The movie has a really great cast and the acting is great. They have just the right amount of over-the-top dramatics and totally strange humor. The ten stories are sort of connected, but sort of unrelated and random as well. If nothing else, it's always good to see a little fun poked at religion. A wacky, fun little movie. Plus, Famke Janssen is in it, and she is HOT!


Jon's Review:

3.5 out of 5

Bizarre humor often manifests itself in strange movie formats. The Ten is no exception - ten short stories that illustrate (or at least reference) each of the Ten Commandments in some way. This was a pretty funny film but with a very very bizzare and unusually twisted sense of humor. An enjoyable cast (Paul Rudd, Winona Ryder, Liev Schreiber, Rob Corddry, Kerri Kenney-Silver) combined with the ridiculous humor of writers from The State made this movie funny, but some may find its humor offensive or at least crude.
