Storyline

Stocky Greg's passion is football, and he rounds up his family from their respective church meetings and rushes home just in time to make the kick-off of the Sunday afternoon Vikings game. He has just planted himself in front of his massive television screen scarfing down chicken when his new home teaching companion, Nelson, calls to inform him that he has set an appointment to visit the Mori family in 15 minutes. Mormon males serving as home teachers are admonished to visit with their assigned families once a month, bring them a spiritual message, and provide help as necessary. Nelson, a nerdy "letter of the law" kind of Mormon who will not even purchase gas on a Sunday, intends to visit 100 % of his assigned families every month, and as this is the last day of the month even the many madcap mishaps that start immediately will not deter him from completing his duty despite Greg's griping and attempts to get back to the games.

takes the prize as best
18 January 2004 | by (Salt Lake City, UT) – See all my reviews

Quite a bit different from The Sinlges Ward and The RM, but as Mormon comedy movies go, this takes the prize as best. It was hysterical! And the great thing was that the humor really is able to appeal to everybody not just Mormons. Halestorm Entertainment has really come a long way with their techinical expertise and it shows in this film. It looks good, but from a stand point of camera work and camera direction there is a great improvement in cut away shots durring dialogue, and back and forth shots - its not just one master shot of two people talking. The pacing and movement was nice and clean. It felt a bit short, and i think was at a few minutes shy of ninety. Another scene or two would have been OK. Which wouldn't have been too hard with all the wild events the two lead characters went through, I am sure the writers could have come up with a few other gags to up the anty. Though some of the gags didn't seem to make sense. IE the tire change in the beginning. Maybe the idea was OK, but the execution of it didnt seem to make much sense. The running joke with the troll was so so. Fell flat in a few spots. And when they asked for a current issue of Highlights? Huh? But overall as a whole, this film was great. Me and my room mates and our dates really, really enjoyed it. I will go back to see it again - at the dollar theater second time around. But for sure will be adding it to the DVD collection. Thanks to Halestorm for another good addition to the mix.
