Movie Info

Three guys from Utah set out with the lofty goal of becoming the world's greatest Mormon boy band in this satirical comedy. Will Jensen (Will Swenson) and his brother Danny (Danny Tarasevich) are members of a devout Church of Latter Day Saints family from Provo, UT. Born a mere ten months apart, Will and Danny have always loved to sing together and have been trying to get a harmony group off the ground for some time, but they've had a hard time finding the ideal third member. Enter Kirby Laybourne (Kirby Hayborne), a professional scrapbook compiler who is moonlighting in a production of +Forever Plaid. When Will hears Kirby, he thinks he's finally found the missing piece of the puzzle, and with the help of perpetually cranky choreographer Yvonne (Maureen Eastwood) and manager Grayson (Peter Brown), the trio, now dubbed Everclean, starts playing the Latter Day Saints youth circuit in earnest. Soon Everclean is the hottest thing since Sprite with infectious tunes such as "Diddley Wack Mack Mormon Daddy," "Love Me but Don't Show Me," and "Dang, Fetch, Oh my Heck," but can the group break outside of Utah before its egos blow up? Sons of Provo was written by Will Swenson and Peter Brown, both of whom appear in the movie; Swenson also served as director.

Critic Reviews for Sons of Provo

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

As in the case of Nigel Tufnel and company, you genuinely like them even as you're laughing at them.

March 24, 2005

No, it's not particularly original. But it's pretty darned funny.

March 24, 2005 | Rating: 3.5/5

While the movie shows promise, it isn't as funny as a movie about a Mormon boy band ought to be.

Amusing -- but only in spurts.
