It was both entertaining and funny with plenty of laughs. I had a good time going to see this.

Talented cast, amusing sound effects, very good costume design, a little too over the top even for a farce (but the small theater space may have contributed to that feeling) but overall entertaining. Well done.

Description

Written by Larry Coen and David Crane

Set in the 1930s, it tells the story of brothers Benny and Phil, who go to the Arizona desert to work as extras in the Biblical epic film Exeunt Omnes, directed by the mysteriously reclusive D.W. DeWitt. All 3400 extras are supervised by Louise Goldman, who divides them into groups by asking them to count off by four. While Phil’s experience as a “Three” includes relatively pleasant scenes of feasts and parades, brother Benny is a “Four,” meaning he is included in all ten plagues. As things progress and everything begins to fall apart, Phil finds himself behind the cameras as the film’s director, with Benny in a starring role. The two fall in love with Louise, leading to a brother vs. brother rivalry typical of epic movies.
