    The Ten changes tone every few minutes, ranging from lowbrow gross-out gags to elevated language to a big, sloppy musical number.

    The Ten offers a brand of comedy for very particularized tastes, though everyone should appreciate the in-joke of featuring Ryder in the skit about the Eighth Commandment. For those of you less versed in the Bible, that’s the one that says thou shall not steal.

    Everyone involved seems to have been operating from the presumption that gross and blasphemous equals hilarious. Would that it did.

    The Ten is a virtually snicker-free exercise in audience pain. It's less a movie than an endurance test.

    It's true that there are many rape jokes in this movie. This isn't generally a problem, in fact I love rape jokes and have a few zingers I've made up myself. The problem here is that the rape jokes aren't very funny. Everyone knows that rape jokes are only funny if they involve clowns, small children, or some combination of the two. The rape jokes in this movie lacked those crucial elements, therefore rendering the jokes mirthless and at times mean-spirited. For better rape jokes check out one of the Zelda games. And don't roll your eyes at that, it's all about the subtext. Full Review »
