Movie Info

In a town in Holland, a quartet of American Mormon missionaries takes an apartment together. Their aim, of course, is to spread their religion's word, but things aren't going smoothly. Rogers (K.C. Clyde) is questioning his faith while dealing with relationship problems back home, newcomer Calhoun (Kirby Heyborne) is having a hard time adjusting, and Johnson (David Nibley) and Van Pelt (Cameron Hopkin) get on each other's nerves. The men soon begin to debate calling their whole mission off.

  • [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.

    April 16, 2004 | Rating: 2/5
  • 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.
