...brings to mind the fondly remembered Kentucky Fried Movie/Amazon Women on the Moon anthos from the '70s and '80s. full review
Those worried about incurring God's wrath by seeing The Ten, don't concern yourselves -- by watching the film, you've suffered enough. full review
Perhaps the Bible needs an 11th Commandment: Thou Shalt Not Bore. That might stem misfires such as The Ten. full review
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. full review
The actors are so good, and so funny.
The Ten is devious and inspired enough to juice you past any weak spots. Thou shalt be amused. full review
Not so much blasphemous as it is very silly, and it lives up to the one unbendable commandment of comedy: It's funny. full review
Multi-segment movies tend to be notoriously uneven, and this definitely proves to be the case with The Ten. full review
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. full review
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. full review
