Cox -- who experienced the Mormon view on gay life firsthand -- gets the sort of performances out of his characters that will help you overlook what is cliched about the story.

Old School Reviews

simple paint-by-the numbers gay themed film that strikes directly at Mormon dogma, but it has a certain charm due mainly to Sandvoss' Herculean efforts

Ramsey's heartbreak, stock taking and determination to see to it the relationship gets a second chance are as affecting as anything the genre has produced in recent memory.

Cox can be forgiven for getting a little preachy when he makes his point with such an open heart and loving spirit

...Funny, tragic, occasionally cheesy, endearing and ultimately heartwarming, dealing with very serious Christian hypocrisy while holding onto a light, life-embracing tone.

Even if the film feels somewhat contrived, stick with it; you'll be rewarded by what it has to say.

It's timely, not to mention refreshing, to see an affirmation of true love over hot sex, along with a reminder that the two aren't necessarily mutually exclusive.

[Writer/director C. Jay] Cox deftly explores the links between coincidence and destiny, fate and miracles, love and loss.

Despite the inherent clichés, Latter Days manages to rise above its formulaic plot, mainly because of the assured performance by Mr. Sandvoss.

Although a good deal of what happens is predictable, the writer-director C. Jay Cox makes much of it pleasant.

Cox's screenplay, while occasionally lapsing into the sort of cliches endemic to so many gay-themed films, generally treats its unusual subject matter with dignity and complexity, and the characters are well-drawn and sympathetic.

Even as it subscribes to the conventions of modern romantic comedy, it never compromises its characters' truths.

This gay romantic melodrama draws on an unconscionable number of conventions, but works in the end because of its commitment to its characters and a handful of fine performances.

Though the film covers familiar queer-cinema ground, Latter Days' finely observed truths about the painful costs of being yourself make even the contrivance of its happy ending forgivable.

Despite the frequent obviousness of the script and direction ... the story attains an undeniable, if somewhat soap opera-like, power.
