It's worth watching and quite interesting, but not as good as the first two on WBC
22 July 2019 | by mahdavi-1See all my reviews

A part of me was left wondering what the point in this third documentary was because it was somewhat similar to the second ("America's Most Hated Family in Crisis"). The main difference is Fred Phelps had died and he wanted to understand why he was excommunicated - nothing that wasn't known to the public already was revealed by current WBC members or those that left WBC. Since his death, the church had already started to moderate, but the reasons as to why was never explained by the WBC members.

It was disappointing that there was less of Shirley Phelps-Roper and none of Margie Phelps, both of whom are very charismatic, intelligent and interesting women to listen to. There was more of Steve Drain, unfortunately, and he's one of the more dull and annoying members of WBC that has assumed a leadership position. Would've been nice to see the young men of the church and how they're doing, especially the young Phelps-Roper guys, who were kids in the first two documentaries.
