A cute, well-produced film that suffers only in its slow pace and unfortunate editing.

Director Black paces at a leaden plod, with great gaping pauses between lines that make the 104-minute movie feel three hours long.

A better way to combine the church and Jane Austen? Rent the Colin Firth version of Pride and Prejudice and read the Book of Mormon during the slow bits.

Anyone familiar with the book or BBC miniseries (or over the age of 6) will not be surprised by the outcome, except for how wholly unengaging and tedious it is made here.

Can Jane Austen adapt to Mormon Cinema? The answer... is a surprising yes.

It's a remarkable ensemble that becomes even more impressive in light of the fact that all are relative unknowns (at least for the time being).
