Critic Reviews for The Singles Ward
It all plays out ... like a high-end John Hughes comedy, a kind of Elder Bueller's Time Out.
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
Theirs is a simple and heart-warming story, full of mirth that should charm all but the most cynical.
[D]oesn't bother being as cloying or preachy as equivalent evangelical Christian movies -- maybe the filmmakers know that the likely audience will already be among the faithful.
Audience Reviews for The Singles Ward
Halestorm showed a lot of promise with this first movie, an excellent one for those who want to understand the LDS faith and for those who are already members.
[font=Times New Roman]Ok if you understand how you feel when you see a cheezy comedy but still....it makes you laugh and cry and junk...Than that's what you got here. The SIngles Ward was the first Comedy About Mormons, for Mormons, by Mormons.[/font] [font=Times New Roman][/font] [font=Times New Roman]In a Ferris Bueller type narration, a man named Jonathan Jordon, a member of the Church, has slipped down that path of Church inactiveness. So it's obvious the ward is trying to reach out...and in a montage of scenes we see how many ways they usually try to, and what Jonathans responces are. We first see"We're having a ward Barbeque! THought you might like some Chicken..." (the line is said hilariously and the facial expressions knock you out), The next we see "Our releif society baked some cakes and we thought you might want one!" and The other is "Hey Brother, Our wards going Paint Balling we thought you might wanna join us". His responces...In order are...[/font] "Oh sorry...I'm a vegetarian", "Oh....sorry guys I'm on a diet", and "I'm not allowed to handel fire-arms...I dunno if Paint Ball guns count but I can always ask my probation officer". All in all though...their is a romace story thrown in with this quirky comedy....and it's Hilarious... 8/10 FREsh
