Product Description

The Best Two Years tells the story of four missionaries who share an apartment in Amsterdam, Holland. Elder Rogers (KC Clyde) has only a couple of months to go on his mission, but his testimony and zeal for missionary work has suffered from hardships he experienced in letters from home. He is now only serving out his time with as little effort as possible when he is given a "greenie" from Oklahoma as a junior companion. Elder Calhoun (Kirby Heyborne) has the enthusiasm, innocence and naiveté of a new missionary, and the relationship between the two creates some very funny moments.

These two elders share a typical missionary apartment with Elders van Pelt (Cameron Hopkin) and Johnson (David Nibley). Elder van Pelt fancies himself a rather handsome ladies man who is keeping an ongoing correspondence with three "girlfriends" back home. He is also very ambitious, and sees himself as quickly moving up the ranks of missionary leadership. Elder Johnson is Elder van Pelt's senior companion, and has a more "seasoned" view of being a missionary. He is looking forward to returning home and marrying his girlfriend, with whom he keeps an active correspondence going. Both elders have certain habits that tend to wear on the other.

The dialogue is fast-paced and engaging. We follow the elders from the day of Elder Calhoun's arrival to the day of Elder Rogers' departure. The story is funny, but also has dramatic moments as we witness Elder Rogers find his testimony and discover his real reasons for serving a mission from the simple but unshakeable faith of Elder Calhoun.

The Best Two Years was shot on location in Amsterdam, Holland and Alpine, UT.

I missionary movie I can relate to-
By , Submitted on 2015-02-25

When I saw God's Army years ago, I remember asking myself, "who's mission was this. It certainly wasn't anything like mine. It doesn't even FEEL like a mission." Well the Best Two Years felt a lot like my mission. Yes it is funny but also moving. It really captured young men struggling with the issues of faith and each other. I LOVED it. Very impressed!

favorite mormon movie!

Kirby is really annoying in this but other than that it is a pretty good movie.

The best movie ever!

This was the best church movie I have ever seen. Everyone I know loves it. If you watch any church movie, this is the one I would suggest.

One of the Best!

One of the better made LDS dramas. I laughed in several parts, and it brought back some old mission memories. Very Good!

I wasn't sure about seeing another LDS movie because I haven't been impressed with others, but this one was great! the music-awesome. the acting was just fine and the characters believable. I thought the story was great too-I love how the greenie missionary masters the language and the ways of a missionary at the end. Touching-did I mention the music is great?

Great movie!

I was skeptical about watching this movie because of God's Army, but I am glad I watched it. This movie is well done and extremely entertaining and it is now one of my favorite movies.

This movie is the best Mormon movie that has been made! It is funny and spiritual. Whenever I watch it it just brings back feelings from my mission.

I enjoyed watching this movie! It had a very good message behind it too! I don't want to spoil anything about it, but I do recommend it! :)

Loved it!
By , Submitted on 2015-02-25

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. I saw it after my mission and could relate to parts of it. It had more substance than some of the other movies made by church members. I loved that there was no cheesiness, which gave it more credibility. I recommend everyone own their own copy of it.

Awesome Missionary Movie
By , Submitted on 2015-02-25

This is an awesome movie. No, it does not have as much insight as a church educational movie, but that's not what it is meant to be. It has the perfect mix of funny and spiritual scenes. This is definitely my favorite LDS Drama.

Good movie

Kirby Heyborne is still playing it a little over the top as the over-zealous and socially challenged Elder Calhoun, but it works better here than in some other films. The tranformation of Elder Rogers is the real story here, as we are again reminded that losing ourselves in the work is the key to success and happiness.

The mission stereotypes are played up a little too much, but this movie is one that you are not embarassed to invite non-member friends to watch. Great music, too.

Funny movie

best missionary movie out!

My favorite LDS film
By , Submitted on 2015-02-25

Having served a mission in Denmark I could really relate to this film. It doesn't take itself too seriously and has a great blend of comedy and drama. I love that the missionaries learn to make good choices (as all missionaries should), and they have their ups and downs (just as all missionaries do). It's a great film and I love the soundtrack too!

Best LDS Movie Ever Made!

This is an LDS Movie everyone should see. Not only is it funny but it's one that returned missionaries can relate to.
