Movie Reviews

A total tearjerker
Carin J. Reddig | Tehachapi, CA, USA | 03/15/2003

"A great story of opposites attracting.
While it is clean enough to take your pre-teens to, it is not naive about the hurdles of modern romance.
I went to see this film with a group of about 10 women of varying ages. We all laughed. We all cried. We all loved it!
Kleenex is NOT optional."
A Five-Hanky Romance
EarthMama | Northeast USA | 09/14/2004

"This is a story about an unlikely pair-- a strait-laced Mormon boy and a wild NY girl-- who manage to find love despite their differences. But can there be a happy ending when they come from two different worlds? This love story, based on a 70's book that I never read, had me sobbing at least four different times throughout the movie. Then I had my husband watch it with me the second time. My husband never cries. He cried.
I would say the acting in this movie is somewhat inconsistent, at times not %100, but at other times brilliant; also this is a low-budget film by general standards. But the story and soundtrack make up for any slight imperfections.
If you don't like over-the-top, sappy love movies, stay away. But if you like a good, clean romance film, this is for you. This is an LDS(Mormon)-made film intended for a broader audience, so if you're not Mormon, you shouldn't let that deter you. What an awesome movie!"
I laughed, I cried and I am going to buy

"I enjoy the mormon movies and when I saw "the singles ward" and I was told the boy reading the book Charly is the main character in the movie I had to go.The closest theater that was playing the movie was three states over.
All I can say is that it was wonderful. I was even impressed how well the actor pulled off his character for if you saw his spotlight in the other movie you would not think he could do a romantic lead. It proved what a good actor he is. I am hoping that they keep up the plot line and do another. If another one comes along I think it would be worth another trip to go see it. This is one that is a good addition to any DVD library. Like all the LDS/ mormon movies I have seen, I don't hesitate letting my children watch them, this one is no exception. This is good clean family entertainment."

"I love this movie! It is such a powerful love story. While not exactly like the book, this updated version of this genuine love story is sure to be a moving experience. You will laugh and cry. And no, you do not need to be Mormon to fully appreciate the message of this movie, however if you are Mormon this is a MUST have for your movie collection."
