I’ve never been to Sunstone and sometimes I would like to be able to say that I have never watched Mormon movies like The Singles Ward and others (I can say that I have never watched Church Ball or The Home Teachers, whew!). In this episode Mike Barker makes me want to get to Sunstone one day and Larrin reminds me of myself in another life that was amused and entertained by The Best Two Years (A toddler offers his take on the movie as well). It is fun and lighthearted and if you stick it out to the end I provide the correct plural form of the Book of Mormon that the elders in the movie were never able to agree on.
The movie review was pretty annoying, but I don’t think it’s the reviewers’ fault. There are so many inside jokes for RM’s that probably fly over people’s heads who didn’t go on a mission, that make it that much more enjoyable for those who did. But the most annoying part is when the reviewers constantly whine about how it is “so over the top”, when that is the point of the movie…I think they even mention that a few times too, but still continue to complain. Is it a perfect movie? No, but I think a lot of the jabs made are shallow. I think the movie had heart and was a decent Mormon comedy/drama.
