Back when Amanda Seyfried, Hollywood’s Mormonest actress, starred in Dear John (remember that movie? the one with Channing Tatum that inspired C-Tates to start that web sizzy about all the things ya boy got mad love for?), I said it was the Mormonest movie ever. Well I take it back. Last night I was watching TV and an ad for Seyfried’s new movie, Letters to Juliet came on, and incredibly, it looks EVEN MORMONIER.
How Mormony is it? Amanda Seyfried goes to a spot in Verona where people leave letters to Juliet (of Romeo and Juliet), and finds a letter written in the 50s. She answers it, and would you believe it, gets a response! Which eventually leads her on a road trip through Italy to find the old lady’s (Vanessa Redgrave) long lost love with her and her grandson. In the process, SHE FALLS IN LOVE WITH A BLOND DUDE DURING A CAR RIDE WITH GRANDMA. Oh, and then grandma’s love interest rides up on a horse. Will they churn butter together and drink decaffinated tea? Find out this Mother’s Day! Game, set, Mormon.
