People say the darndest things about Mormons!
In the tradition of The Mouths of Babes, intrepid interviewer Daryn Tufts (The Singles Ward) and filmmaker Jed Knudsen (The Whole Armor of God) tour the country documenting the hilarious misconceptions people have about Latter-day Saints. From New York to Los Angeles, this sidesplitting collection of man-on-the-street interviews helps answer the question: What in the world do people think of us?

Maybe Utah or Idaho Mormons will find this video funny and surprising but to the rest of us, this video showed nothing new. We face these misconceptions on a regular basis and are thus provide many missionary opportunities.
Funny! Funny! Funny!

I thought this movie was hilarious! Our whole family loved it but when we showed it to another family in the ward they were offended by it. It is definately better the second or third time you watch it too.

I think that Daryn Tufts and Jed Knudsen are charmingly funny! Although the DVD was a little on the short side (and there wasn't enough in the deleted scenes to keep me going after the documentary was over) my daughter and I absolutely loved it! , And even though I absolutely loved the documentary, I was really disappointed to see how little people really new about the true church of Christ. Those of us outside of Utah have to get to work!!!

I was expecting more meat and substance to the questions. Pretty lame. My expectations were high - what a disappointment.
A light, funny movie

I really liked this movie! I thought it was funny and interesting to see all the misconceptions. I grew up out of Utah and it is so true!

Funny but lacking

This video is funny if you are a member of the church and know the answers to the questions. But for those that are not members, the questions remain questions and are never answered.

I really enjoy watching this film. It's only half hour long but it is fun to show to other LDS friends. Totally recommend. Good stocking stuffer for Christmas.
Funny and fun to watch.

American Mormon is pretty funny. I think it is a little short and would have prefered that it was at least an hour long. , Some of you are missing something where you think nothing was set straight for all the people that they talked with. They say in the commentary that they told the people they would help them after the interview. They would stop the camera after the interview and talk with them about their answers and explain the truth and correct any misleadings about the church. , I thought they did a pretty good job with this. I hope they get a little more organized with their next project.

This movie is absolutley wonderful. The only problem with it is that once you watch it once you aren't going to want to watch it agian. It is a funny the first time only movie. Once you have seen it and know what is going to happen then you don't need to watch it again.

It was fun to see what the rest of America thinks they know about Mormons. This was definitely fun to watch.
