  • Summary: The Ten is comprised of ten blasphemous and hysterical stories inspired by the Biblical Commandments, each told in a different style, but with characters and themes that overlap. The film is held together by a narrator who, in turn, has his own moral problems. (THINKFilm)

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

    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.

    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.

    By flaunting its own stupidity, The Ten practically dares you not to laugh at it, like a stand-up comic who sells an unfunny joke through the ferocity of his delivery.

    The funniest and arguably most envelope-pushing episode stars Winona Ryder as a newlywed who falls in love on her honeymoon - and steals the object of her lust: a ventriloquist's dummy.

    There are lengthy stretches during this movie when it's deadly dull. This is the kind of film that's ideal for DVD viewing. Judicious use of the fast forward button will greatly increase The Ten's appeal.

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

    "The Ten' really is amazing. The humor really does take some getting used to but when I saw it a second time (i've seen it three "The Ten' really is amazing. The humor really does take some getting used to but when I saw it a second time (i've seen it three times now, already) I could not stop laughing! Wain and Marino have, again, produced their own brand of comedy that is unlike any of the other crap that has been shoved into movie theaters for the past several years. This is a must see. Expand

    David Wain & Ken Marino are geniuses. It was great seeing them last Saturday night at the Nuart for the Wet Hot American Summer midnight David Wain & Ken Marino are geniuses. It was great seeing them last Saturday night at the Nuart for the Wet Hot American Summer midnight show. Their Q & A had me rolling, but not as much as this movie did. You'd be a fool for not seeing this. These blowhard critics above who think the movie is blasphemous are completely humorless. Let them go see Hot Rod or Who's Your Caddy or whatever other benign milquetoast "comedy" is out there. I'll probably see this 3 or 4 more times, depending on how long it stays at the Landmark.

    I was blown away by this movie - I wasn't familiar with a lot of the people involved and honestly wasn't expecting much. It's I was blown away by this movie - I wasn't familiar with a lot of the people involved and honestly wasn't expecting much. It's hilarious, like laughing so hard your stomach hurts from beginning to end hilarious. Haven't seen a movie this funny in a long long time. Smart, inventive, and entertaining. Expand
