January 26, 2012
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.
December 11, 2012
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.
December 12, 2012
'Save the Date' traffics in the most banal situations and whiny characters imaginable.

December 27, 2012
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
December 28, 2012
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.
December 13, 2012
[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.

January 30, 2012
Calculated quirkiness and cartoonish characterizations make Save the Date shallow enough to be a sitcom pilot.
December 5, 2012
A basically plotless, made-for-millennials rom-com ...

December 12, 2012
What's worst about the film is how it appropriates its main character's noncommittal selfishness to support its own quaint, anti-establishment themes.

December 11, 2012
Yet another unfocused movie about generic relationship quandaries.
December 14, 2012
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.
October 5, 2016
Caplan and Brie deserve a much better movie than this.
July 10, 2013
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.
December 13, 2012
A pleasing sophomore feature from Sundance alum Michael Mohan
