Audience Reviews for The Buttercream Gang


Not many people are aware of this very odd nineties movie that showcases Morman values. It's like a lost 50s movie that was made 40 years too late, but maybe Mormon Children are still this good natured. It was almost like Stand By Me without the tragedy and foul language. The Gang has a falling out with their previous leader, who has become a wrong doer. It simply must be seen for the completely odd movie it is.

I felt compassion for Pete when he yelled, "I want you to hate me because I hate myself!" I feel his pain, I've been there myself.
