A Rational Look at Christianity; Basing Reason in Truth

According to Coming, a new David Wain movie is in production entitled "The Ten".

City Lights Pictures and MEGA Films have teamed to finance and produce The Ten, a comedy spoofing the Ten Commandments, to be directed by David Wain (Wet Hot America Summer).

Now, I never saw Wet Hot American Summer, but based on the metacritic site, linked above, it wasn't a particularly good movie -- just your average parody which was loved by a few critics, but mostly treated as average or below average.

Again, I don't think there is anything wrong with spoofing Christianity (I loved Monty Python's Life of Brian), but there is a difference between spoofing and being mean-spirited. I don't know which this will be. However, I am hopeful that since Jessica Alba signed on in a role in the movie and she claims (or, at least, claimed) to be a Christian (she does retain conservative leanings as reported here, although she didn't show it at the MTV Music awards where she told the crowd to "practice safe sex" and drive hybrids), the movie will not go too far into the mean-spirited side. I guess we'll wait and see.


I think it was in Mel Brook's History of the World Part I, where Moses is coming down the mountain holding three tablets.

"I have these fifteen, fif...."

One tablet falls to the ground, shattering on impact.

"Ten! Ten commandments!"

I have to admit I thought that was pretty funny. And I ask forgiveness for mentioning it the week after Pentacost from our Jewish readers. Although Mel Brooks is Druis...., I mean Jewish.
