The Singles Ward

ages 6+ | 33 % Say It's Worth Your Time

The Singles Ward is a 2002 LDS cinema comedy film directed by Kurt Hale and written by Kurt Hale and John E. Moyer based on his own life as a stand up comedian and single member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Like The R.M., and other films which followed it, The Singles Ward's target audience is members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and citizens of Utah. As such, references to and parodies of the Mormon and Utah subcultures pervade the film and are unlikely to be completely understood by non-Mormons. The Singles Ward was followed in 2007 by The Singles 2nd Ward. After faithfully serving a full time mission for his church and marrying, Jonathan Jordan finds himself recently divorced and once again a member of the LDS single adult world-- a world whose ultimate goal is Eternal Marriage. Disenchanted, Jordan stops going to church. He even creates a stand up routine lampooning the Mormon way of life. His resistance to the church continues until he falls for Cammie Giles, a member of the local singles ward. Suddenly, Jordan finds going to church more appealing. But is he attending church again just to impress her? Tagline: The Road to Eternal

    This film has its funny moments, but they're just that. The main character played by Will Swenson is great and incredibly likable. Most of the other characters I found to be cliched and annoying. But if your a member of the LDS Church, you'll probably get a few good laughs from this one.

    Yes, much of the acting and humor are campy, but if you were a Mormon single when this came out, you will go back and watch it again and again, with nostalgia. While much of it is over the top, there is a ton of truth to the culture that is portrayed in this movie. The overarching message of making the choice to be in and involved in the Church because you want to be is very powerful.
