A word of advice to the makers of The Singles Ward: Celebrity cameos do not automatically equal laughs. And neither do cliches, no matter how 'inside' they are.

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

It all plays out ... like a high-end John Hughes comedy, a kind of Elder Bueller's Time Out.
