  1. Devious and inspired enough to juice you past any weak spots. Thou shalt be amused.

    The early, explosively funny skits and a loose, engagingly adventurous spirit are enough to ensure this uneven but often delightful project the cult fame that accompanies pretty much everything associated with Stella mainstay Wain.

    Fundamentalists might take umbrage, but The Ten is not so much blasphemous as it is very silly, and it lives up to the one unbendable commandment of comedy: It's funny.

    Second feature from duo David Wain and Ken Marino of comedy group the State is, like their "Wet Hot American Summer," uneven but often hilarious.

    More often than not, you'll laugh, and that's all you can hope for in what might as well be a prolonged episode of "The State," from which several of the cast and creators sprang.
  6. Wain and Marino try to tie all this together with a framing narrative about an unfaithful husband (Paul Rudd), which turns into a clever parody of Woody Allen movies.
  7. Gretchen Mol stars as a 35-year-old virgin deflowered in lusty romance-novel fashion on a trip to Mexico. Her hunky lover-boy's name? Jesus Christ (played by Justin Theroux). The segment? "Thou shalt not take the Lord's name in vain."

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 »
