July 24, 2009
The beyond-goofy collection of Commandment-inspired vignettes has funny moments, but it's a wildly uneven anthology, with three or four clunkers for every genuine chuckle.

Rudd, whose wry deadpan proved indispensable in Judd Apatow comedies like 'The 40 Year-Old Virgin' and 'Knocked Up,' is used here mostly as a straight man, the host in charge of introducing stories that drift along without any real destination.

...brings to mind the fondly remembered Kentucky Fried Movie/Amazon Women on the Moon anthos from the '70s and '80s.

A blasphemous parody so painful to sit through it seems designed by the Almighty as punishment for heathens and sinners.

Most of the segments are as clueless about their designated commandment as they are about what's supposed to be funny.

Some bits... are shockingly funny. Others, like the surgeon who causes a woman's death "as a goof," are just shocking without the funny.

Three of the comic segments in The Ten are sort of funny. Three others are just so-so. And the remaining four are just dumb, painfully unfunny and/or downright crude.

The Ten is, while not "bad," nor "unfunny," surely not as good as it had ought to be.

One guesses the talent that signed up for this negligible movie did so out of good will for Wain and Marino. Or maybe they all did it ... as a goof.

we leave the theater feeling like we've just been at a church service that went on a little too long.

Those worried about incurring God's wrath by seeing The Ten, don't concern yourselves -- by watching the film, you've suffered enough.

If you're looking for ha-ha funny, then The Ten is probably not for you -- you'll be more likely scratching your head in befuddled wonderment.

Any of the film's concepts would be pretty funny in a tossed-off 'Saturday Night Live' skit, but presenting these absurdist ideas in the context of an impeccably produced albeit low-budget motion picture somehow sucks the comic air from the room.

Yeah we liked this movie (with our self-proclaimed warped senses of humor), but we KNOW it's not for everyone, so thou shalt not blame us if you don't enjoy it as much as we did.

Thou shalt be funny. Thou, in this case, isn't.

Wain is a big fan of offbeat, exaggerated humor that either hits so big you think he's a genius or misses so badly you wonder whether he's sane.

As ridiculous as it is uproariously funny.

There is a fun film in there somewhere, especially for those who know what they're getting into and are willing to just go with it. If you're not bothered by naked men frolicking and jokes about prison rape, then this is the film for you.

...The Ten wields its bad taste like a blunt instrument, bludgeoning you with buffoonery that's hard to resist.

Not exactly the stone-etched last word on biblical moviemaking, The Ten at least has a rare flair for the non sequitur, and a sassy, spasmodic charm.
