Quirky inter-related stories. Standing by two tablets, Jeff promises to introduce ten short stories, each about one of the commandments. A man survives a fall from a plane and his fiancée marries someone else before falling in love with a marionette; a surgeon causes the death of a patient and in prison tries to choose his mate; a woman encounters Jesus in Mexico and later confronts her husband on the Sabbath; twins and their mother reflect on fatherhood; covetous neighbors miss a chance to be heroes; and, between each story, Jeff's love triangle with Gretchen and Liz plays out. In the end, all the characters join in singing that it's all about love. Written by

I'm sorry, I had to go, okay?
Because I have to introduce the ten stories. I told this this before, we'll talk about this when I get home, alright? I'm late enough as it is.
"The Ten Commandments" ten stories, alright? You knew about this when you married me, this is what I do.
Hello? Hello? Unbelievable.

This will not be everyone's cup o' tea. If you are an avid fan of, oh I dunno, Adam Sandler or Wil Ferrel films, then you might want to steer clear of this one.
It basically consists of 10 disparate stories that actually intertwine. Each story loosely concerns one of the 10 Commandments. Introducing each "parable" is Paul Rudd's character, who is involved in a "parable" of his own.
The comedy ranges from the scatological to the ridiculous to the satirical. At times it is a groaner and other times downright laugh-out-loud funny.
