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 »

BRILLIANT!!
17 September 2003 | by (Salt Lake City, UT) – See all my reviews

This was the funniest movie I've ever seen. They did a hybrid of a Christopher Guest-type movie and a normal comedy, and made it for Mormons! I love how they made fun of movie Directors. That hasn't been done enough.

Okay, so maybe I'm biased 'cause I MADE the movie. But let it be known that I'm making fun of myself as much as any other Mormon filmmaker.

The DVD will be amazing. Promise.

Enjoy the show!
