I really don't understand all the hate - Wain and Marino have taken possibly the most-shared stories of all time (the Ten Commandments), and have somehow found new, creative ways to tell them. It's a funny, goofy film with silly running gags, and Wain really has succeeded at transforming the tritest of texts into a surprising comedy as hilarious as anything else he's done.
A huge misfire. I heard they spent only a week on the screenplay, and it shows. You don't need a big budget, but some more thought would have helped. I did like the prison setting for the "covet thy neighbor's wife" segment, but there aren't enough clever setups to go around here. Omnibus films rarely coalesce, and this one doesn't either. The Rudd sequences don't add anything and each segment hammers only one joke.
This film is the one David Wain film that is the most consistent for me. It could have been merely a funny sketch movie, but the links of Paul Rudd's introductions, along with how the sketches reference each other and weave recurring characters in and out, make it a film that works a hell of a lot better than Monty Python's "The Meaning Of Life". Yeah, I said it.
