5.0 out of 5 stars A Five-Hanky Romance September 14, 2004
This is a story about an unlikely pair-- a strait-laced Mormon boy and a wild NY girl-- who manage to find love despite their differences. But can there be a happy ending when they come from two different worlds? This love story, based on a 70's book that I never read, had me sobbing at least four different times throughout the movie. Then I had my husband watch it with me the second time. My husband never cries. He cried.

I would say the acting in this movie is somewhat inconsistent, at times not %100, but at other times brilliant; also this is a low-budget film by general standards. But the story and soundtrack make up for any slight imperfections.

If you don't like over-the-top, sappy love movies, stay away. But if you like a good, clean romance film, this is for you. This is an LDS(Mormon)-made film intended for a broader audience, so if you're not Mormon, you shouldn't let that deter you. What an awesome movie!

5.0 out of 5 stars a total tearjerker March 14, 2003
A great story of opposites attracting.
While it is clean enough to take your pre-teens to, it is not naive about the hurdles of modern romance.
I went to see this film with a group of about 10 women of varying ages. We all laughed. We all cried. We all loved it!
Kleenex is NOT optional.

5.0 out of 5 stars I laughed, I cried and I am going to buy November 4, 2002
By A Customer
I enjoy the mormon movies and when I saw "the singles ward" and I was told the boy reading the book Charly is the main character in the movie I had to go.The closest theater that was playing the movie was three states over.
All I can say is that it was wonderful. I was even impressed how well the actor pulled off his character for if you saw his spotlight in the other movie you would not think he could do a romantic lead. It proved what a good actor he is. I am hoping that they keep up the plot line and do another. If another one comes along I think it would be worth another trip to go see it. This is one that is a good addition to any DVD library. Like all the LDS/ mormon movies I have seen, I don't hesitate letting my children watch them, this one is no exception. This is good clean family entertainment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Astounding... March 25, 2007
By iPosty
My wife read the book as a teen, and bought the movie recently. She didn't tell me anything about it before we watched it; and I can't for the life of me remember being more emotionally moved by a movie. Clearly the ending is sad, but I was impressed with the depth of the relationship and the way this film addressed the sincere love between a husband and wife that truly love each other and get the eternal nature of marriage. I couldn't recommend this more strongly for married couples.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Mormon chick flick of the year -- and the only one. October 29, 2002
If you are a Mormon and want to score points with your wife, take her to see "Charly". If you're not a Mormon and want to see a love story that makes you laugh then soak a Kleenex and does it without swearing or off-colored humor, take her to see "Charly".
"Charly" is the story of one Charlene (aka Charly), a free-spirited art student from New York who is set up with a strict Mormon boy, Sam, to introduce her to the beauties of Salt Lake City and the Mormon Church. A rocky relationship turns into love that promises to last forever.
Heather Beers plays a convincing role as Charly who is unpredictable throughout. Jeremy Elliot plays Sam who remains the rather dull Mormon. Adam Thomas Anderegg directs the story by LDS author Jack Weyland into a beautifully-crafted (on a strict budget) adaptation for screen.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best movie in a long time October 31, 2002
When I saw this movie, It was so funny. This is the only movie that I actually almost cried in. The ending is really sad. I would see this movie over and over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Poignant love story January 25, 2003
By jim
Not as melodramatic as Love Story/Ali McGraw Ryan O'Neal. A story for any one whom has almost lost a love for reason of differing faiths or absence of. The conflict here is attraction of opposites, and then boy meets girl, almost loosing girl then outcome is forever. This is for the romantic spirit, the true believer. Not only for the "Mormon" niche market but it helps if you have ever been curious about Mormon love, and Christ's influence on same.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow; amazing love story June 22, 2004
This is that one-in-a-million love stories that makes your heart sing for the joy of human love and its ability to conquor so many obstacles to find itself and bless two lives with joy. From the book to the movie they did a wonderful job in keeping the spirit of the characters and powerfully bring them to life on the screen. Beautifully done and magically captured. A must see for all who have loved, ever hope to love and all who have lost one they dearly loved.
