It's a shame the closing moral about a more pragmatic, inclusive approach to spirituality is conveyed with such a heavy hand.

Begins as a satire, ends with a renewal of faith.

A successful mix of John Waters' naughty sass with Frank Capra's' cordial sweetness, "Saved!" questions Christianity's constant urgency: Is salvation really unattainable for these teenagers if they're not seeking it this second, every second, 24/7?

"Saved!" starts out as a feisty satire on organized religion but sputters in its third act to an apologetic footnote for all that has come before.

Brian Dannelly's movie waltzes across the floor of high school comedies like a new kid out to prove he's in a class of his own.

Audience Reviews for Saved!

I really liked this film! It was funny and it also gave out a positive message. A must see!

Bethany Murphy

Super Reviewer

A teen comedy with the typical cliques and baddies but also, many deep commentaries on love, sex, faith, humanity, and diversity. Every character achieves redemption in his or her own way, but that's okay because it echoes what the movie believes true Christianity should be.

The "shit - fuck - Goddamn" scene is excellent.

I thought it was hilarious in high school, gets less funny as an adult and you analyze da chuuch issues. Solid satire.
