Content:

(HHH, PaPaPa, EvEvEv, Ho, LLL, V, SS, N, AA, D, MM) Very strong humanist worldview with paganized men and women behaving like sex-crazed animals with one important character saying, “We’re just dust, so we might as well have fun in life,” plus some homosexual content; 42 obscenities, six profanities; one brief fight and one suicide attempt; nearly constant chatter about sex, two scenes of illicit sex, one scene of trying to find a prostitute; dream sequence of blurry image of girl in shower and one scene of rear male nudity as nude men at beach run into ocean; one scene of people getting drunk and behaving badly, other scenes of more controlled alcohol use; two scenes with smoking; rampant insulting of others and vulgar gossip.

Summary:

SING NOW OR FOREVER HOLD YOUR PEACE is a small, vulgar character study of a sex crazed singing group trying to cope with middle age. MOVIEGUIDE recommends that moviegoers avoid this movie and pray for the filmmakers and all those people who live anything like the shallow, lust-driven, confused lifestyle portrayed.

Review:

SING NOW OR FOREVER HOLD YOUR PEACE is a small, vulgar character study of a sex crazed singing group trying to cope with middle age. They are so far off the path of righteousness that they literally mimic apes they see having sex on television and joke about gang raping one of the couple’s nanny.

The movie opens with the group singing at a college concert. They are dressed in jeans but have on long-sleeve shirts and ties. They sing Sinatra-style music a cappella. This is not a rock band. The group did not last long after college. Fifteen years later, one of the group plans to get married and asks his old friends to come sing at his wedding.

The group gathers for a weekend at a cottage to visit and practice before the wedding. The movie quickly degenerates into discussion after discussion about who is having what kind of sex, who wants to have sex with whom and why having illicit sex is normal. There are even dream sequences of the guys fornicating with the 24-year-old Swedish nanny.

The wives in the movie are almost as bad as their husbands. They too get into crass discussions of sex. One even tries repeatedly to talk someone other than her husband into having sex with her.

Watching apes in the zoo for 94 minutes would be more entertaining than this movie. At least apes don’t spout obscenities, profanities and stupid lines like, “We’re just dust, so we might as well have fun in life.” One of the lead singers (David Harbour) decides to quit worrying about his receding hairline and start having children (at 36). Another (Alexander Chaplin) who sort of attempted suicide decides life is worth living even if his wife (Molly Shannon from SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE) is vulgar and unfaithful. And, the despondent divorcee of the group (Reg Rogers) gives an endorsement of marriage speech at the wedding and then runs off with the Swedish nanny.

MOVIEGUIDE® recommends that moviegoers avoid this movie and pray for the filmmakers and all those people who live anything like the shallow, lust-driven, confused lifestyle portrayed in the movie. The Bible says, “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” As abhorrent as this movie is, God loves the filmmakers and the people who live like this in real life. Christians should be reaching out to the lost so that God might set them free from their bondage to sin.
