...and God Spoke Review


Very Good
Arthur Borman's mockumentary doesn't have the stature of Spinal Tap or Best in Show, but it's a genuinely funny entry into what has become a rapidly tiring category.

...And God Spoke is a spoof about the making of a film (bad sign), a $10 million eponymous movie condensing the whole of the Bible into a feature film.

He has plucked the right chord on her heartstrings and she wastes no time getting down to see him perform at the roadhouse with her closest friend, Violet (Sara Rue).
