Mormon movies are a burgeoning industry in Utah, and despite the niche audience and low budgets, some of them hold their own with Hollywood in terms of storytelling and entertainment value. The Book of Mormon Movie, however, isn't one of them.

Tooele Transcript-Bulletin (Utah)

Those who hold LDS religious beliefs dear will find moments of meaning and palpable sincerity. But good intentions alone do not constitute a worthy film.

Phil Villarreal
Arizona Daily Star

With a little more publicity, word of this sturdy little adaptation of LDS scripture might have reached a bigger audience.

Sean P. Means
Salt Lake Tribune

A plodding, repetitive, ham-fisted attempt to create a Ten Commandments-style epic without the resources or bravado required to pull it off.

Bruce Bennett
Spectrum (St. George, Utah)

On a shoestring budget of $2 million dollars the production looks amateurish in every detail from the inauthentic costumes to the sparse sets to the camera work that rarely reveals anything other than close-ups.
