The Year One is a comedy set in a biblical environment. The whole thing has a Monti Python feel according to Jack black.
“Year One is a biblical comedy. It’s about the old testament. I’m just a dude wandering through biblical times. I’m not a famous character that you would have heard of before. Me and Michael Cera are just sort of wandering through, and you get to see all these old stories from the Torah, told through Agnostic, sort of, eyes.”
Some religious bigots may get pissed off by The Year One, but Holy Crap, with Jack Black in the cast, I bet the movie is going to be damn funny.
