Light in tone without being insubstantial, this is what more romantic comedies should aspire to be.

SAVE THE DATE is a mature, refreshingly honest portrait of relationships - between lovers, family members and friends - that never fails to deliver humor and insight.

With irrepressibly appealing performers playing flawed characters, he strikes a chord that resonates, even if some of the notes are a bit familiar.

Racy romcom has realistic characters but needs more plot.

A pleasing sophomore feature from Sundance alum Michael Mohan

An easygoing romance you might enjoy, despite the fact that you never need to see it again.

Save the Date ... is appealingly ambivalent about whether growing up is really such a great idea.

Save The Date's achievements are modest-it could be funnier and more affecting, and it ends with a shrug-but the film is wise about sibling relationships, the uncertainty of youth, and smaller matters ...

A relatively straightforward example of its genre, one that's distinguished from the pack primarily by the appeal of its two female stars.

After so much emotional dishonesty inherent in Sundance films like Hello I Must Be Going and Celeste & Jesse Forever, Save the Date had a welcome air of truth about it.

Just gets it right. The tone is kind and sympathetic but juicy with drama and tension breaking comedy.

Smart, funny, sexy, sad and refreshingly devoid of clichés, Save The Date occupies a higher evolutionary plane than most other wedding-themed romantic comedies.

Slumbers through routine conflicts, often in the dullest manner imaginable, refusing the lure of a snappy pace to wallow in poor communication contests that grow intolerable.

There's a finely-tuned sense of how difficult it can be to live life on your own terms, but the film so resolutely adheres to indie conventions it's hard to take seriously.

Lizzy Caplan and Alison Brie lend the lightweight rom-com "Save the Date" more than its fair share of watchability. But the film is never truly interesting.

While Caplan works well in theory as an antiromantic-comedy heroine, director and co-screenwriter Michael Mohan just doesn't give her enough to do.

[It] may sound like Sitcomland, but Mr. Mohan's sensibility - visually, comically, in terms of character - is more naturalistic, more Sundance. It's just not particularly sharp.

A merely adequate addition to the raft of romantic comedies for those pushing 30 without adult lives to call their own.

Save the Date is romantic comedy with aspirations to do something new. That's admirable but it isn't enough.
