It's a pretty swell flick, with an amusing storyline, endearing characters, fine acting, great music, and quality production.

October 18, 2004 Full Review

A lame production that suffers from a paucity of fresh ideas.

Amateurish performances and production values, pointless local cameos and a parochially exclusionary tone that penetrates all the way to the movie's title.

Witty and highly polished, if very forgettable, satire that pokes self-deprecating fun at the church while strongly reaffirming its values.

Non-Mormons may find themselves scratching their heads at the LDS in-jokes, but much of the film is surprisingly funny.

...the film is a witty and enjoyable romp...

Even with its shortcomings, it's hard not to like as family entertainment and though the genre is still in its incipient stages, 'R.M.' can claim the title of funniest LDS-based movie to date.

It is not a great film, but it's a good one, a pleasant one.

The film is most successful when it's trying to replicate the Airplane! strategy: throwing as many jokes as possible at the wall to see what sticks. However, it's simply a case of trying to do too much.

...A funny romp in Happy Valley; until it starts to take itself too seriously.
