A new movie set to be released this Friday will feature the Ten Commandments from the Bible in a very unflattering way.
â€The Ten,â€ written by the same director of Wet Hot American Summer, is a compilation of ten different stories, each depicting one of the ancient commandments given to Moses by God.
Christians have expressed their concern about the film and how it degrades and insults God and His laws. Many critics, however, believe the movie will have little influence.
â€œThe Ten Commandments have been a cornerstone of our society for nearly one hundred years,â€ explained â€œThe Tenâ€ director David Wain on the filmâ€™s website. â€œIf you’ve ever taken a Sunday off, or if you’ve ever stopped yourself from murdering someone, then you yourself have been following the Ten Commandments without even knowing it.â€
The film has a number of stars in it including Paul Rudd, Adam Brody, Gretchen Mol, Winona Ryder, Oliver Platt and Jessica Alba. Each of them either stars or plays minor roles in each of the short scripts. Each uses the Bible to create a foundation for an often inappropriate caricature.
