Amiably amusing.

[Anderson] handles the frat-house humor more convincingly than he does the conversion scenes, which are so serious and emotional that they seem to come from a different movie.

The experiences of these young men probably would resonate with anyone who has undergone similar trials, but I saw few themes that would resonate with a larger audience.

After seeing The Best Two Years, you might want to stop by a construction site to see which is more interesting, this movie or watching paint dry.

To its credit, The Best Two Years shows a refreshing willingness to acknowledge the foibles and possible problems with some Mormon missionary practices.

An interesting look at the lives of Mormon Missionaries. Manages to convey the experience without being preachy.
