Let’s not mince words. Wholly Moses was a stinker! It was a lame biblical spoof about a character called Herschel who was hidden as a baby in the same bulrushes as Moses.
The grown-up Herschel marries Moses’ sister-in-law and then overhears the Lord’s instructions to Moses but mistakenly believes they are meant for his ears . . .
It was cringingly embarrassing right from the start and savaged the talents of Dudley Moore, Madeline Kahn, Richard Pryor, John Ritter and Dom DeLuise.
Moore had top-billing as Herschel but was excruciatingly unfunny, and the whole concept was executed far more successfully in Monty Python’s Life Of Brian in 1979.
Thou Shalt Not Laugh.
