Critic Reviews for The Singles Ward
It all plays out ... like a high-end John Hughes comedy, a kind of Elder Bueller's Time Out.
Those unfamiliar with Mormon traditions may find The Singles Ward occasionally bewildering.
It is parochial, accessible to a chosen few, standoffish to everyone else, and smugly suggests a superior moral tone is more important than filmmaking skill
Theirs is a simple and heart-warming story, full of mirth that should charm all but the most cynical.
[D]oesn't bother being as cloying or preachy as equivalent evangelical Christian movies -- maybe the filmmakers know that the likely audience will already be among the faithful.
Audience Reviews for The Singles Ward
Mormon movies could be good if they didn't feel like a bunch of Utah mormons made them, all with the exact same Utah mormon humor. But, I guess they were made by Utah mormons, so go figure.
I thought this Movie Was SOOOO Super Cute and Really Funny :) :) :)
Loved it :) :) :) it makes me miss the church again I think I am going to start going to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints again I was stupid for leaving to begin with
Funny stuff. Right on key with the singles mormon community. But sometimes, it makes you realize all you can do in those awkward situations is just, laugh.
