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

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

Thou shalt be funny. Thou, in this case, isn't.
August 17, 2007
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.
August 17, 2007
Perhaps the Bible needs an 11th Commandment: Thou Shalt Not Bore. That might stem misfires such as The Ten.
August 17, 2007
If there were Ten Commandments for filmmaking, one would certainly be: Thou shalt not pass off sketch comedy as a feature film, especially when charging $9 a ticket.
August 17, 2007
The Ten is nowhere near a 10. Let's call it a six.
August 9, 2007
The actors are so good, and so funny.
August 9, 2007
The Ten is devious and inspired enough to juice you past any weak spots. Thou shalt be amused.
August 3, 2007
A lame and irritating comedy that is an endurance test to sit through.
August 3, 2007
Not so much blasphemous as it is very silly, and it lives up to the one unbendable commandment of comedy: It's funny.
August 3, 2007
It's more a frivolous spoof than a pointed satire.
August 3, 2007
Multi-segment movies tend to be notoriously uneven, and this definitely proves to be the case with The Ten.
August 3, 2007
The Ten is so proud of its own wit and irreverence that when you fail to be equally impressed, you are likely to wonder if your own sense of humor is, in some way, deficient. Rest assured it is not.
August 3, 2007
Darkly satiric.
August 3, 2007
A Decalogue for special-ed students, The Ten leans too often toward the bizarre and the bewildering.
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.
August 2, 2007
Despite many giddy moments, the conceit becomes gradually more exhausting, until somewhere around the seventh commandment you're ready to choose God's wrath over any more overproduced, A-list-acted throwaway TV sketches.
August 2, 2007
Where Kieslowski's work always had a goal and a sense for how real people think, nothing about The Ten suggests that the filmmakers ever thought any further than the next meager, uncomfortable titter.
August 2, 2007
Like the comic masterpieces of [Woody] Allen's '70s heyday, the first five short films represent a brilliant, laugh-out-loud combination of grad-school braininess and vaudeville goofiness, highbrow absurdity and lowbrow shtick.
