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."

Good for a laugh, LDS or not!
10 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie itself is absolutely hilarious as you follow the escapades of these clueless boys who dream of stardom. Two brothers hold auditions for a third boy to join their band, and from the word go, you forget about how these guys can take themselves so seriously and get a laugh-a-minute! The songs have some good morals to them, when you just listen to the lyrics - but these morals get a healthy mix of laughter, especially when it clashes with Proud Pharisaical Mormon values. I'd recommend this to anybody - whatever their faith! Just don't judge all LDS by what you see in these witty satires! Good use has been made of the DVD format - I could sit and watch the menu options for a half hour at a time, as Will vainly prattles on. There's a good selection of deleted scenes - mostly tirades of ab-libbing. Again, these are worth a barrel of laughs as you see how serious Everclean is about themselves. The LDS movie scene just gets better! Don't miss out just cos you're not LDS.
