Jonathan (Will Swenson) is a stand-up comic whose recent divorce has made him lose faith in his Mormon beliefs. This questioning works its way into his stand-up act. However his attitude begins to change when he meets and falls for Cammie (Connie Young) the woman who leads a prayer/special group of unmarried Mormons that Jonathan becomes involved in.

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.

Aug 30, 2002 | Rating: 2/4

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

Sep 26, 2002 | Rating: 1/4

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.

There's no conversion effort, much of the writing is genuinely witty and both stars are appealing enough to probably have a good shot at a Hollywood career, if they want one.

Audience Reviews for The Singles Ward

Mormon movies could be good if they didn't feel like a bunch of Utah mormons made them, all with the exact same Utah mormon humor. But, I guess they were made by Utah mormons, so go figure.
