Movie Info

Frustrated by his mother's attempts to set him up with all the "nice" girls she knows, Tartan, a 29-year old single Mormon, decides to leave Utah for the very first time. He accepts a forest services position in Longwinded, a small town (pop. 558) located somewhere deep in the Southwestern mountains. Upon arriving, Tartan is accosted by the county sheriff regarding his religious affiliation, which he soon learns is the determining factor of his social circle. Longwinded is a town made up of 262 Mormons and 262 Baptists -- both groups completely biased against the other -- and Tartan is the tiebreaker.Tartan is determined to find a solution to end the hostility between the two groups -- especially since Charity, the beautiful visiting niece of a Longwinded resident, is less than eager to make her stay in such a religiously-prejudiced town permanent. tartan gathers the unwilling Mormons into inviting the Baptists to an "All Faiths" barbeque, hoping to create a sense of town friendship and unity.From the suspicious disappearance of half the Mormon's double-wide trailer/church and rocks being thrown from heaven to a mysterious humming being sounded off the mountains, Baptists at our barbecue is a delightful parody on the absurdity of religious prejudice. Baptists at Our Barbecue is a story for the ages, a reminder that people matter, whether or not their beliefs match your own. -- © Halestorm Entertainment

Critic Reviews for Baptists at our BBQ

All Critics (4)

The 4th grade level of humor on display here makes the charmingly goofy 'Napoleon Dynamite' seem positively Shakespearean by comparison.

Spectrum (St. George, Utah)

The cast seems stifled by suffocating boredom with their own film.

October 22, 2004 | Rating: C
Tooele Transcript-Bulletin (Utah)

It's an amiable film, kind of funny in places, not too irritating when it's not funny, and it passes the time pleasantly (if blandly).

A punchier script with more quips certainly would have helped Baptists become more than merely a mild diversion, and maybe more than just a local sensation.
