Quotes

Will Jensen: We're looking for someone a little more dedicated, quite honestly.
Danny Jensen: Someone who's willing to commit.
Will Jensen: Right, and somebody that is willing to walk the path of righteousness with us. We're going to find someone that has some wicked moves...
Danny Jensen: Oh yeah, I mean pipes.
Will Jensen: ...Some bad mother vocal tricks, and some that most importantly, is in touch with the Divine, um, as we are. A black guy would be awsome, right?
Danny Jensen: Yeah!
Will Jensen: There's only like ten black guys in Utah, but we'll find them.

6 June 2005 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie yesterday and came to IMDb today to find out more about it. Too bad for the reviewer who did not get it. My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed this one. I've been hankering to laugh out loud for awhile now and Sons of Provo conjured those wicked barking laughs that surprise ones own self when voiced.

Cheers for the excellent, consistent performances by the actors, and thanks for the easy, entertaining story. Though some would make a comparison to a Christopher Guest film...and I guess I am now...I was glad that SoP didn't linger too much on the awkward hilarity of the characters, as I have found some of CG's later films to do.

I might really only give this movie a 9 for a few too many distracting uhs and ahs in the dialog, I had to give a 10 to raise the lame 3 offered by the popcorn litterbug. Keep our theaters clean! H
