Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Josh Ralske
Too timid to be truly subversive, Saved! is saved from being a middling high-school comedy by first-time writer/director Brian Dannelly's light pop touch and a superb ensemble cast. Jena Malone, an intelligent young actress, provides the solid center of the film. The film satirizes a kind of deceptively cheerful, youth-oriented brand of evangelical Christianity, as personified by Pastor Skip (Martin Donovan), who exhorts his receptive teenage audience with, "Let's get our Jesus on," and "Let's kick it, Jesus-style." In the wrong hands, the pastor could be a crude caricature, but the skilled Donovan gives him a surprisingly touching humanity. The problem with Skip and Mary's (Jena Malone) bouncy nemesis, Hilary Faye (Mandy Moore), is not their religious devotion, but their inability to reconcile their faith with their own human failings. Hilary Faye takes tremendous pride in loving Jesus more than anyone else. Roland (Macaulay Culkin), her wheelchair-bound older brother, is like a badge of her own self-sacrificing goodness, and she's oblivious to the fact that he resents her "charity." The unfortunate Roland is relegated to background noise by Hilary Faye and her crowd, while his love interest, Cassandra (Eva Amurri), whom Mary describes as "the only Jewish" in their school, must be brought into the light. The ragingly profane Cassandra is a showy role for Amurri, who invests her with grit and heart. Patrick Fugit is coolly charismatic as Mary's devout but open-minded and goodhearted love object. The climactic prom scene is sloppily overextended, and Saved! sometimes falls flat, as in its misfired exposure of Hilary Faye's secret past. There's certainly a topical edge to the film, but the satirical barbs don't always draw blood because the filmmakers are perhaps too careful to couch their critique of hypocritical piety in a mild but appealing comedy of acceptance.
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
By the end of the movie, mainstream Christian values have not been overthrown, but demonstrated and embraced. Those who think Christianity is just a matter of enforcing their rulebook have been, well, enlightened. And that all of this takes place in a sassy and smart teenage comedy is, well, a miracle.
Baltimore Sun - Michael Sragow
Saved! is the audacious feel-good satire of 2004.
USA Today - Claudia Puig
Not only is Saved! subversively funny, it is unexpectedly sweet.

Saved! is the audacious feel-good satire of 2004.

    One of my favorite movies

    Saved is one of my favorite movies. It is very funny and has so many good one-liners in it. It is not really a teen comedy because it deals with teen issues like pregnancy , homosexuality , and not fitting into a world were people are always looking to be accepted. Also it deals with these issues in a non offensive comedic way.

    Save yourself from boredom and watch Saved!

    When i picked up this movie i totally wasn't expecting it to be as good as it is or as funny. Saved is about Mary, a christian teen, who attends a Christian school where she is friends with one of the most popular girls named Hilary Faye. when Mary's boyfriend tells her that he's gay she gets a vision from God telling her to save him. so Mary sleeps with him foolishly thinking that's the right thing to do. when the parents of Mary's boyfriend find out he's gay they send him away and soon after that Mary finds out she's pregnant. her relationship with Hilary Faye starts to crumble but Mary manages to find some good friends including Patrick who has a real interest in her. this movie is great. it has great young actors in it, including Jena Malone, Mandy Moore, Patrick Fugit, and Malculay Culkin. i really loved seeing Mandy Moore as the mean girl once again. overall this movie rocks, so buy it or rent it but watch it!

    Say "Hi" to Christian High School

    I know how some of my fellow Christian friends feel about this movie it's irreverant, it's poking fun at Christians and Christian schools and etc. But the truth is almost everyone I recommend the movie to loves it.I attend a Christian High School and I found it to be on the truthful side of what it's like.There are your "Holier than thou" cliques (basically formed by teen christians brought up in very conservative homes) and everyone else. In fact the reason why it's so funny to my friends and I is Mandy Moore's character,Hilary Faye reminds us of a certain girl at our own school.I think it's safe to say this is a some-what accurate portrayal of Christian HS.... and I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    A satirical expose of hypocrisy

    Here's a terrific, poignant and hilarious send-up that exposes the hypocrises of a religious school that's more obsessed with manipulation of the human spirit than in actually helping naive teens seek real peace, truth and knowledge. It's on target as well as a load of fun.

    TOTALLY AMAZING

    This movie was so amazingly outstanding! I fell in love with Patrick Fugit! He is so cute. Saved shows the major points of a typical teenage life. (Or not so typical :) I would reccomend this movie to anybody who is really into teen flicks! Its a keeper!

    A very intolerant close minded film towards Christians and their beliefs.

    Hollywood rarely misses a chance to ridicule Christians or denigrate their faith. This pathetic so called comedy which is set in a Christian academy makes Christian kids look like close minded intolerant Nazi nincompoops. This is the most recent example of Hollywood¿s contempt for Christians and their values and beliefs... which are unfairly ridiculed and misunderstood by many especially the Hollywood elite and this film openly helps continue that perception tooth and nail. This movie also proves the full extent of Hollywood's hypocrisy... the only group that seemingly needs to learn 'tolerance' and 'open mindedness' are those narrow simple minded Christian folk (their opinion of us). Which is hogwash. As a Christian myself I found this film and it's content utterly offensive and lacking any sensitivity toward the Christian faith. I also did not appreciate the blatant stereotype the director threw towards Christians. By trying to make Christians look like insensitive over zealous idiots who hate homosexuals shows a complete lack of understanding of the Christian faith and it's core beliefs. This was a bad movie all the way around... and I'm sure the only people who will like it will be those 'supposed' free thinking open minded folks who have it in for anybody with religious beliefs and values. Which ultimately shows their ignorance and short sightedness.

    ironically my bible

    I have attended christian schools my whole life, so while this story is a bit more encentric, i can definitely relate. Some people seem to feel insulted by this movie, disgusted by the stereotypes portrayed. What they fail to see is that this movie is not about stereotyping people, its about the very real and tough issues of teenage life and people handle these issues differently. What people should walk away with after seeing Saved! is the important messags. Sometimes you can find the best and most loyal friends in the most unlikely people, sometimes you are more than what the world expects of you, and people should not discriminate or think badly of you just because of a few contradicting beliefs or a different lifestyle. A hilarious movie that i recomend to anyone with an open mind.

    What was all the buzz about?

    This film seemed so funny and witty on internet previews. However, watching the whole 93 minutes proved disappointing.Cliche and trite epitomized this film. I was able to predict everything that happen, 45 minutes before it actually happened. Hollywood needs to stop experimenting with stereotypical examples of Christians, Jews and gays; it's time for a comedy with brains.

    Unique and well-written film

    This film was a well-written and interesting work that can probably be enjoyed by many age groups, but some of the negative portrayal of christian high schools could have been the reason for its poor performance at the box office. It is not your average teen angst drama, but for all of you who enjoy that genre, don't worry because there is plenty of that in here. All and all, it is an excellent comedic performance, with a new genre of character performance for Mandy Moore and Macauley Culkin. Go see this movie if you love good films in general, because this is indeed a good one!
