When Jonathan Jordan gets divorced he's thrust back into the world of being a single Mormon - a world who's ultimate goal is eternal marriage. Struggling to fit in, Jonathan decides to stop going to church only to be pursued by the members of the local singles ward who want to reactivate him. Nothing works until Jonathan falls for Cammie Giles, the ward activities director. Suddenly, going to church becomes much more appealing. But his he going for the right reasons? Written by
While performing for students at the University of Missouri, Jonathan tells the crowd where his car is parked so that they can "steal all of (his) stuff" and burn it to the ground. This comment refers to the infamous "Extermination Order" against the LDS (Mormon) Church, issued by Missouri Governor Lilburn W. Boggs on October 27, 1838. This order called for the Mormons to be driven from the state or wiped out. (It was not formally repealed until 1975.) See more »
Cammie probably would not be wearing a no-sleeved dress, because in Mormon culture women are encouraged to have their shoulders covered. See more »
So you brought the fried chicken?
Yes, it's a family recipe. It's been in my family for years.
Nice try, I worked at KFC for two summers during high school.

This is certainly not a great film, but it's a lot of fun if you are LDS, like myself, have been in a singles ward, and get the many LDS culture jokes. Also, playing Spot-the-LDS-Celebrity adds to the film's appeal. But Singles Ward will just confuse and perhaps irritate non-members. So far only Richard Dutcher (who has a funny cameo in this film) has managed to go beyond the Mormon genre and appeal to non-members and audiences outside Utah/Idaho/Nevada,... with God's Army and especially Brigham City.
