Despite a strong comedic cast, the film isn't particularly funny. Save the Date is a typical Sundance romance that doesn't ever set itself apart from its brethren.

Date works best as a collection of winsome, unconnected vignettes; its ideal distribution model would be piece by piece on YouTube.

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

'Save the Date' traffics in the most banal situations and whiny characters imaginable.

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.

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.

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.

You won't be missing much if you can't keep your calendar open for this lightweight comedy.

[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.

Calculated quirkiness and cartoonish characterizations make Save the Date shallow enough to be a sitcom pilot.

A basically plotless, made-for-millennials rom-com ...

What's worst about the film is how it appropriates its main character's noncommittal selfishness to support its own quaint, anti-establishment themes.

Yet another unfocused movie about generic relationship quandaries.

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.

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

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.
Chase Whale

A pleasing sophomore feature from Sundance alum Michael Mohan

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

Manages its modest pleasures because of its likable cast.
