God (Gust Alexander), a short and slightly overweight guy with a receding hairline, lives in absolute darkness, and to occupy himself he creates stars and planets - and ultimately light, to see what he has achieved even. He takes a liking to earth, thus he creates its flora and then its fauna, then he proceeds to name everything ... but gets wary of the naming process soon enough so he creates man, namely Adam (Ted Nichelson), so he takes over naming things. Adam though soon feels lust, so God creates a companion for him, Pete (Y.K. Chan) - but he's less pleased when he catches them having sex, so Pete's soon gone and enter Eve (Mary Moorefield). God figures when Adam and Eve are not out naming things, they ought to worship him, but they're more into hallucinogenic mushrooms, and thus God decides to abandon them (and mankind with them) ... but only for the time being, soon enough, God's bored again, and thus he returns to earth to be worshipped again, but instead he's attacked by two hitmen (Jed Rowen, Kim Thomassen), and thus decides to flood the earth and let only old man Noah (Bill Devlin) and family (Suzanna Griffith, Max Webb, Paul Bunnell, Y.K. Chan) plus two animals of every species survive. But Noah is less than pleased regarding this responsibility, plus he's not very good at planning his journey with his ark.

God decides to test Abraham's (Scott Douglas MacLachlan) faith next, but is taken aback by the ease with which Abraham is persuaded to sacrifice his son (John Armstrong). And when he tests Job (Max Cartagena) by taking everything from him, he's disappointed how stoically he lets this happen. So God, still looking for the affection of humankind appears to Moses (J. Michael Raye) as his wife's (Ashlie Rhey) burning bush to dictate him some 12,000 commandments - but Moses reduces them to a mere 10.

This is about the time God's girlfriend Barb (Allison Meriwether) leaves him, and he, a bit horny, picks up a mortal, Mary (Lauren Baldwin), who suffers from the neglect of her husband-to-be Joseph (David Anthony Hernandez), and accidently impregnates her - upon which she files for matrimony in court and wins the case.

God's son grows up to be Jesus (Dennis Kinard), a man who's much more level-headed than his father, and he tries to make God the loving being he wants himself to be seen as ... but God has other plans that involve Jesus' crucifixion - but Jesus has no plans to be nailed to the cross ...

 

Now there's a film that's definitely not for the pious, though I doubt that upon closer inspection one would find it half as blasphemous as it appears on first sight, as the stories are actually picked from the "good book", and not all go as far as the Bible goes even. And while the humour of the movie, while mostly genuinely funny, is often on the blunt to crude side, there is also lots of thought in this movie which raises some serious issues one actually should have with the Bible. But of course, the film's still a comedy first and foremost, and as such it works very well thanks to a light-footed approach, an ensemble cast who are clearly in on the joke but refrain from turning it moronic, and a solid central performance by Gust Alexander, who manages to make his God sleazy but likeable in his clumsiness.

Again, if you're easily offended when it comes to religion, don't watch, but if you're up for a bunch of bible-themed jokes with a bit of food for thought hidden inside, then this one's for you!
