Wholly Moses! Reviews

April 30, 2018
Next to the pointed, funny Life of Brian, this is absolute sacrilege.
April 30, 2018
An opportunistic attempt to cash in on the diminutive Moore's post-10 stardom by shamelessly ripping off the premise of The Life of Brian.

Dudley Moore is funny. James Coco, Madeline Kahn and Richard Pryor are funny. Director Gary Weiss showed he was funny with his direction of Saturday Night Live. So, why isn't Wholly Moses funny?
April 30, 2018
The movie's not funny on its own, and since movie audiences are scarcely going to be shocked by its mild but relentlessly repetitive irreverence, it all boils down to a very old joke.

There are a couple of droll sight gags, but nothing can redeem Wholly Moses! from its destiny of eternal mirthlessness.
April 30, 2018
The direction by first-time director Gary Weis is flat, and the script by Guy Thomas is uninspired.
April 30, 2018
Life of Brian was protested by religious groups as heresy. Wholly Moses is silly and lowbrow enough that it never generated equal controversy. It's in every way inferior to that other film, but silly enough to provide a few cheap laughs.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
