The Ten Reviews

September 22, 2007
Most of the segments are as clueless about their designated commandment as they are about what's supposed to be funny.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

Too often, The Ten is simply not funny enough, stretched thin by ideas played out too long.

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

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.

August 3, 2007
This is one of those films where the humor is of the hit-and-miss variety, and it misses more often than it hits. The jokes are transparent. It's not difficult to divine what's supposed to be funny.

It is as if the filmmakers created an 11th commandment of their own: Thou Shalt Not Laugh. And we don'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.

It's not an ice-water shock that The Ten turns out to be merely the fuse to a satirical firecracker that never quite explodes. What did we expect, Kryzsztof Kieslowski's The Dekalog as a comedy?

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.

Many of the films have little to do with the Commandments, and none has anything provocative or profound to say about them.
August 1, 2007
A slightly patchy tapestry that tickles about as much as it annoys, full of unexpected laughs but also some torturous dead spots.
January 11, 2008
A blasphemous parody so painful to sit through it seems designed by the Almighty as punishment for heathens and sinners.

August 18, 2007
The Ten commits the mortal sin of comedy, it's simply not funny. It thinks that just being crude or extreme is enough to merit the label of comedy.
March 11, 2007
90 minutes of random, really bad sketch comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
August 1, 2007
Anytime you compile a series of vignettes and call it a feature film, you're going to have hits and misses. It's the nature of the structure.
August 1, 2007
Lacking a steady hand, this flimsy amalgam of bad jokes is without form and void.
August 10, 2007
It never really quite works up the energy to be as wild and outrageous as it clearly wants to be.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
April 26, 2007
One problem: The movie's just not funny.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
August 2, 2007
You really have to be in the mood to get into The Ten's forced goofiness.
