The Ten

***DISCLAIMER*** The following review is entirely my opinion. If you comment (which I encourage you to do) be respectful. If you don't agree with my opinion, that's fine. To each their own. I am just sharing my opinions and perspective. Finally, the reviews are given on a scale of 1-5. 1, of course, being terrible. 2, being not great. 3, being okay. 4, being good and 5, being epic!

The Ten - 5 out of 5

What happens when you have Ken Marino and David Wain write a movie that has a fantastic ensemble cast and tells 10 individual stories that pokes fun at the ten commandments? You have yourself one GOD DAMN FUNNY MOVIE!!!

After watching this film, I was shocked to learn the critics gave the movie mostly bad reviews because I found it to be extremely hilarious and it only gets funnier each time you watch it because there are tons of small jokes that either recall previous jokes or act as a prologue to future jokes. And it only gets better when you add in the fact it has one of the best ensemble cast of comedic (and non-comedic) actors every shoved into one movie. Nearly every member of The State makes an appearance, Paul Rudd, Liev Schreiber, Oliver Platt, Janeane Garofalo, Rob Corddry, Jessica Alba, Famke Janssen, Jon Hamm--the list goes on and on.

The Ten is just ridiculously funny and it quickly becomes one of those movies you quote with friends. Oh, and if you're one of those crazy religious types who like to push your religion on others and hate gays and anyone who isn't white--you know, a Fred Phelps or Pat Robertson type--don't worry, this film isn't making fun of Christianity, it's taking the ten commandments and incorporating them into humorous stories. But then again, if you're a Phelps or a Robertson type, you don't really watch movie, do you? Because you hate happiness.
