| The kind of movies about Mormons I want to see more and more
I went to see this movie with my wife (who has been to a girl's camp of that kind, and my two "girls" now adults and no longer living with us who were participated in those camps and the program for Young Women in the LDS church. We all laughed and cried during the movie because it was fun, serious, and entertaining at the same time. It was not intended to make fun of the women's camp, no character was actually retarded as we see in LDS movies so often. I like this director because the characters can be funny without being stupid. That is hard to do and still have a movie to be funny.

The story is very well drafted and the plot flows without losing track of the main character while building on the character of every one except the father, mother, and stepfather of the main character. I thought it was OK. They could have cast guys that could act a little better but their part was short, we just had to know that they existed anyway. Disney does that all the time.

So, I say go watch and enjoy a nice movie with some good messages not only for young women but everyone in the family. This way the boys get to know what the girls do at these camps they never get to go to... LOL... I thought it was interesting and sometimes would ask "do you do that a these camps?" and they would nod saying yes.. which I thought was really funny.
