A feeble attempt to catch the "edginess" of a Jay Leno skit
19 July 2014 | by anon_123See all my reviews

If you've chosen to live your life according to a convicted con man's plagiarism of a 19th century science fiction novel so bad that the author abandoned it, you don't get to roll your eyes at people who aren't fully versed in the current iteration of your mythology.

Two Mormon filmmakers attempt to recreate the look and feel of the "Jaywalking" skits on The Tonight Show, but are somehow less funny. Generally polite, the interviewers sometimes get condescending when the general public mistakenly assumes that the LDS still follows its original doctrine.

Overall, this film better serves to highlight the fallacy of composition common in Mormon entertainment. Unoriginal, boring, and providing nothing more than another example of the blindered existence of a very deluded cult in the desert.
