Critic Reviews for Save The Date
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.
Audience Reviews for Save The Date
Here are my biases in order of importance: Anything that Lizzie Caplan touches I think is golden, I love independent film conventions even if they are clichéd and disorganized, and stories that revolve around relationships starring anti-heroines make me swoon. All right, let's move past that, so we can get into the meat and bones of this romantic dramedy from director Michael Mohan.

I am a big fan of Indie films, and a fan of Lizzy Caplan..so maybe I am biased, but I enjoyed this. I found this charming, and enjoyed the storyline, lovely drawings, and fun music. I am glad that I ignored some of the bad reviews on this one. I would have missed out on a nice little movie...
In "Save the Date," Sarah(Lizzy Caplan), a bookstore manager and artist, is moving in her with rock musician boyfriend Kevin(Geoffrey Arend) after dating for two years. Her sister Beth(Alison Brie) is happy at her cohabitating for the first time. However, Beth and her fiance, Andrew(Martin Starr), Kevin's bandmate and friend, are gravely worried about him possibly proposing marriage which might be pushing his luck too far. And after a great show, and about to go on tour for a month, that's exactly what Kevin does with Lizzie caught in the headlights with the entire audience looking on...
Some times you can tell a lot by how a movie starts. In the case of the alternately touching and funny "Save the Date," it signals a certain intelligence with its bookstore entrance and does not disappoint throughout with its unpredictable rhythm that is kind of like real life with a neat use of camerawork that especially extends to close-ups. That extends to how perceptive it is about family, friends and relationships, centered around Sarah who is just trying to figure out what she wants out of life while resisting pressure which I can certainly sympathize with.
