Did You Know?


The producers saved money on this film by shooting short ends. Normal rolls of film are about 400-1000 feet long. The short ends that they bought were about 150 feet long, so they had to reload every 90 seconds. See more »

This is an extended seminary video
4 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you cheered for Tom Trails, you'll love this movie. If you cried with Like Unto Us, you'll love this movie. Yes, Mormons, this film is nothing more than a 90 minute extended seminary video disguised as a theatrical film. It is a morality play that teaches us the evils of dating non-Mormons and how much fun life at the institute can really be. While it is not as bad as The Home Teachers, it may be (along with Pride and Prejudice and The R.M.) in a fight for second place on the worst film in the LDS sub-genre. Don't waste your money on the DVD, even if you do want to support LDS cinema and films. Instead, spend your money on The Singles Ward or The Best Two Years.
