Trivia

Richard Dutcher donated the 16mm film stock to make the movie. This is the same stock (three years-old) that God's Army (2000) was going to be shot on, had Dutcher not found the financing to shoot on 35mm. See more »

I NEVER imagined what you could do with hard-boiled eggs...
2 September 2003 | by (Orem, Utah) – See all my reviews

I don't know where to begin; this mo-mockumentary was pretty funny, some of the time, and seemed MUCH longer than it was (about an hour). It had some hilarious moments, was not rude, and charicaturized several show-biz-bitten-Mo-"Steven Spielberg"-types, as well as a few mo-attitudes prevalent in Mo-dom (at least, as rumor has it).

The movie focused on three wannabe mo-Spielbergs and showed off their styles, trials, bits of their work, etc. The others in the film were great. Nobody stunk.

But, as I said, I NEVER imagined what you could do with hard-boiled eggs (or their connection with certain scenes described in the Book of Mormon).

I gave it a six.
