When Carmine "The Beans" Pasquale (Mark DeCarlo) is nabbed by the FBI, he decides to testify against his mafia boss (Michael Kagan) and go into the Witness Relocation Program with his wife Gina (Jeanette Puhich) and son Vincent (Clayton Taylor). Now known as George, Linda and Patrick Cheeseman, the Pasquale family is sent to suburban Utah to begin their new life. But can the "Cheesemans" survive in a world where everyone is Mormon, all coffee is bad, and scrapbooking reigns supreme? A hilarious comedy with a knockout comedic performance by DeCarlo, Mobsters and Mormons is an "entertaining fish-out-of-water comedy" (Wade Major, BOXOFFICE Magazine)!

Outstanding FHE film
by Jose - reviewed on January 17, 2006
The movie was exceptional and funny. I would recommend it to anyone member or non-member. Great balance and humor. The out-takes were outstanding.

Having just lived first in Utah for 7 years and then in NJ outside Philadelphia for several years, I found this movie absolutely hilarious. I think any Italian from NJ would agree with me . . . especially if they got the jokes about the Mormons too.

Loved IT! I expected it to be good, but it was excellent! I don't laugh easy, but at times I was laughing so hard we had to pause the movie because we couldn't hear it! Very well done and professional.

We loved this! I was a little uncomfortable with the gossip lady, but I know they exist. We thought the mafia character was a real hoot. I've shared this movie with many.

This is the best LDS comedy I have seen. I am glad I bought this one. The characters are endearing and the plot is excellent. I have shared it with several friends and they have agreed it is a great movie (espeically if you are from the East coast and have made the pilgramage to Utah).

Main actor makes this movie. Other than his performance it' just OK, but still worth watching.
good comedy, recommended

we love this

My girls and I totally love this. People complain that LDS movies are cheesy but to me that is what I love about them. That is part of what makes them so funny. My girls don't think of them as Mormon or church movies. They like it just as a movie and have watched it countless times.
Don't encourage this kind of film-making

Wow. This movie was painful to watch. Easily the worst 'LDS-themed' movie I have ever seen. After the third Word of Wisdom joke in the first ten minutes I wondered if there was anything else to our culture other than not drinking. And have the producers ever met a non-Mormon? We can't complain about non-LDS people stereotyping us when we produce stereotypical drivel like this. A good message doesn't automatically compensate for such a ridiculously inane and unfunny story. Movies like this hurt the whole genre of LDS films.
Don't waste your time!!

ZERO stars was not an option. The characters are depicted in negative stereotypes, and the acting is HORRIBLE. If HaleStorm Entertainment wants its movies to be accepted by 'mainstream' audiences (meaning non-LDS folks), they better do more research on their non-LDS characters.
Too sterotypical of mobsters & I don't know LDS people like these
by Diane - reviewed on February 15, 2008
I'd have given it more stars if it didn't depict LDS members as snobs to new people in the neighborhood that are different from them. Also, it depicted the women as gossiping, clicky, witches. I know we're not like that, at least not in my ward on LI, NY. It was funny which is why I gave it 2 stars, but if I wasn't an LDS member, I don't think this would inspire me to check it out. In fact, I think it would make me not want to bother investigating at all. I am a relatively new member, just over 3 years. I wouldn't show this to non-members.
This film is a HIT!! (wink, wink, nudge, nudge)

My almost 14-year old son & I watched this movie together last week. We both thought it was just hilarious, and we were laughing out loud. The stereotypical characters were a hoot, and I enjoyed how everything 'worked out' in the end, without descending into cheesiness (or should I say 'Cheeseman'-iness?) , The stereotypes are what made the movie funny, and the fact that there was real depth to the characters was what made you care about them. , We watched the dinner party scene several times, laughing more each time. , We think it is the best of HaleStorm's movies, so far.

This movie is hilarious. A true knee-slapper. The actors did a great job, and I loved the stereotypic portrayals. What better comedic setting could you possibly have for a mobster in hiding than in a Mormon community. A truly great comedy that I would highly recommend to all.
If you want to laugh get this!!

I come from italian back ground so it really caught me funny, it had a good moral at the end and it was hilarious!
Worst movie ever!!
by Customer - reviewed on April 12, 2008
I think that 'Mobsters' should be called 'Monsters' compare to all the language and violence. Don't spend a dollar on this move. Get a movie that is worth five stars and not a movie about people wanting to kill other people.
Violence, Harsh Language
by Customer - reviewed on August 23, 2007
Too much violence, harsh language and heavy 'mobster' stereotyping. This cheapened the film. The idea could have been an interesting one if there was plot that included the characters. As it is all of the characters appear fake and the ending is flat.
The storyline made me think.
by Customer - reviewed on November 17, 2008
I liked this movie because it showed how we can live the letter of the law and not the spirit of the law, how we can sometimes be so judgemental of people. But there was definitely one part that was a little strong, showing the character of the mobster, when he was telling the story to the children.
Fun Family Entertainment!

Our whole family really enjoyed this comedy! Fun to watch -- especially Mark DiCarlo who stars as a ex mobster who is given a new identity in a mormon community. Cute and touching at the same time!

We watched this with nonmember friends and it opened up great conversations.
by Charlene - reviewed on March 13, 2008
I think that this movie in some ways does portray how Mormons act, and I am one my self. I have first hand experience this with a lot of my non-Mormon friends and many of my Mormon friends don't want to know them because of their outer appearance. but over all this movie was great and me and my mom had a ball laughing when we watched it.
Great family film.

We've watched this over and over and laugh every time. My non member sister didn't know what to do because she wanted to laugh but thought I would be offended. I told her it was supposed to be funny! We know what people think and it is even funny to us because it isn't true!
