The Real Old Testament

Actually video makers Curtis and Paul Hannum never get past the book of Genesis, but they find enough sordid material there to keep this 2002 spoof of reality TV moderately funny even after the initial premise has been exhausted. Among the scene stealers are Ted Michaels as the resentful Cain, who confides to the camera, “I'm experimenting with ending life”; Sam Lloyd as a whining Abraham, who receives God's blessings as if they were prizes on a game show; and Kate Connor as Sarah, who can't understand why God keeps barging into their tent in the middle of the night. But for sheer silliness nothing tops the expulsion from Eden: hearing that he'll have to crawl on his belly for all eternity, the slacker serpent (a sock puppet) exclaims, “That's bullshit, man!” 88 min.
