From a non-mormon standpoint.
10 July 2004 | by (SA, Texas) – See all my reviews

If you're not a mormon, you probably don't tolerate much other religions. Personally, I'm not a Mormon. But, I like to look into other religions. First, let me say I am fascinated by the LDS. I love to read the BoM.

Now for the review. ;)

First and Foremost, this movie is so much better then The Singles Ward. Better acting, better idea, and lots funnier. Some scenes made me nearly pee my pants.

While the acting is better, that still isn't saying much. It's decent, but not perfect. And the direction and photography is good.

*** out of *****
