    What's wrong with Latter Days is that its banter is pedestrian and its lessons forced.
  2. 25
    The performances are shaky, rendering Latter Days as a movie that you've seen before, and done better, too.
  3. This tale of tortured love between a Mormon missionary and a West Hollywood tomcat renders its gay and religious characters so stereotypical that neither lifestyle appears attractive.
  4. Reviewed by: Ed Halter
    Cox's tacky melodrama is indeed sub-par, but no worse than numerous gay indies.
  5. 20
    Stranding an able supporting cast in mostly disposable roles--including Jacqueline Bisset, Mary Kay Place, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Amber Benson--Cox writes himself into several corners, then plots honking contrivances to get out of them.

    As an ex-mormon for pretty-well the same reasons as Aaron, I have to say that I loved this film! More....more....I want more!

    This charming film treats all of it's characters with respect. It's pure Hollywood formula but a tearjerker and in the end redemptive.
