Kurt Hale's romantic comedy The Singles Ward is about a Mormon learning to get back into the singles scene. 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. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It all plays out ... like a high-end John Hughes comedy, a kind of Elder Bueller's Time Out."
‑ Ron Stringer, L.A. Weekly
"Theirs is a simple and heart-warming story, full of mirth that should charm all but the most cynical."
‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
"A word of advice to the makers of The Singles Ward: Celebrity cameos do not automatically equal laughs. And neither do cliches, no matter how 'inside' they are."
‑ Jeff Vice, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"Those unfamiliar with Mormon traditions may find The Singles Ward occasionally bewildering."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"[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."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, New Times
"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"
‑ Sean Means, Salt Lake Tribune
"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."
‑ William Arnold, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
