Truer than it SHOULD be!
13 December 2003 | by (Orem, UT) – See all my reviews

This movie is silly, ridiculous... and a bit more true than we would like to think! I just got back from serving a mission in Texas and found the movie HILARIOUS. Of course it is stupid, so was Single's Ward... but I laughed out loud the whole time. My family DID move while I was gone (of course, they TOLD me), my parents were confused until right at the end as to when I was coming home (My mother was CONVINCED I should be home in March when I came home the end of April!) and I feel like adjusting to the "real world" has been among the hardest things I have ever done! I guess I like it so much because I relate to it. I think that this one is actually MUCH funnier than Single's Ward, though I liked Single's Ward soundtrack more. Over all, The R.M. was just stupid... and I loved every minuet of it.
