Quotes

Will Jensen: Eighty percent of all communication is body language. If I were to do this
[shrugs shoulders]
Will Jensen: , that would probably mean to you, "I don't know... I don't know." If I were to touch someone's knee lovingly, it'd probably mean, "I care for you. And you mean a lot to me. Especially your knee." Moving my little finger, even, is something more inconsequent.
[Moves finger]
Will Jensen: "Hello, I'm the little finger. Look at me."

This is Spinal Tap -> A Mighty Wind -> Sons of Provo
16 July 2004 | by (Hollywood, CA) – See all my reviews

In L.A., I went to a screening of this film (the first projection screening). I arrived just after it started and was surprised at the roars of laughter as I tried to find a seat. After I was seated and watched for a minute, I understood. The characters in this mockumentary were perfect in their innocence; you had to laugh at them. The humor in the dialog (much of it ad libbed) was honest and dry. It moves right along from one situation or gig (some of them real performances) to another, interspersed with interviews with peripheral characters. As a bonus, these guys can really sing. They even scored an interview with a member of the first boy band (at least in the opinion of Everclean).

This film was made in Utah by people raised in Mormon families. Luckily, as the director said, Mormons do know how to laugh at themselves. I could not help laughing from the moment I sat down until the last credit rolled.

First it was heavy metal, then folk, and now Mormon boy band. This is the next great music mockumentary.

If you get a chance to see it, do. Don't miss it.
