DVD mix-up surprises Mormon movie fans

`Copies of a movie aimed at a Mormon audience have been pulled from store shelves after a recording mix-up left buyers watching “Adored: Diary of a Porn Star” instead of the squeaky clean “Sons of Provo.”

Two Utah families caught the problem after purchasing DVDs at Deseret Book stores, which are owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. [..]

The PG-rated “Sons of Provo” chronicles the life of an LDS boy band, Everclean, on its relative journey to stardom.

“Adored: Diary of a Porn Star” is an unrated independent film that is not pornographic, said Corey Eubanks, spokesman for Wolfe Video, the largest distributor of films featuring gay and lesbian characters and stories. However, the film does contain sexual situations and its subject is the life of a gay porn star.

“It’s a very heartwarming film about a porn star that reconnects with his family,” Eubanks said. “It’s not a porn film at all. It’s just about someone who is a porn actor.”‘
