Critic Reviews for Save Me

All Critics (34) | Top Critics (15)

Allen brings such conviction to the part that it's almost possible to look past the gaps in Mark's development. In the end, you may not buy each step he takes, but you respect Allen's attempt to make the effort seem genuine.

The first release from the gay-oriented Mythgarden production company, Save Me still bodes well for its evenhanded approach.

This earnest, well-acted melodrama has compassion for all of its characters, who include gay men and the Christians dedicated to healing them of their 'brokenness'.

Audience Reviews for Save Me

Excellent work by the cast and an even handed approach makes this an enjoyable film. Everyone was shown to have flaws, some more severe than others but all were recognizable people with good intentions.

A bit melodramatic, but I am glad this is a more mature version of But I'm a cheerleader. I love it

The only real surprise of this movie is its tenderness. Once the story is laid out, you know what's going to happen. However it has solid characters and good acting. I wasn't bored.
