Trivia

The part of Moosebutter was originally written for the REAL Mormon boy band, "Jericho Road". Unfortunately, Jericho Road is owned by Deseret Book who forbid them to be in the movie because they found the song "Sweet Spirit" to be offensive. See more »

Goofs

During the "Word of Wizzum" performance, and after recovering his CTR ring, Kirby rotates the prop behind him from a picture to the letter "U". In the next scene the prop is back to showing the picture. See more »

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.

The Spinal Tap of Mormon Boy Bands
21 July 2004 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

This film is hilarious. There were many moments which paralleled Spiral Tap, which is in a large part its inspiration. The performances are great, with the actors doing their own singing and song writing. Overall a very talented group of people put together a hugely entertaining film with many laugh out loud moments. Done in the Spinal Tap style of a mockumentary, it even parodies this classic in fresh and funny ways. Who new the inner workings of trying to be a successful Christian Boy Band could be so funny? I'm glad somebody thought of it. It should get theatrical play at some point. In the mean time it is definitely checking out in festivals, where it seems to be getting good exposure.
