Save Yourselves! Reviews
February 20, 2021
In a miserable year filled with grim cinematic fare, this eminently re-watchable science-fiction comedy provides a much-needed spark of lighthearted exultation.

The end is near, so why not save yourselves some time for this sci-fi indie comedy delight.

A light tale about how modern people cope with the unexpected and their dependency on technology, but way more fun than I can make it sound. Great first feature from Alex H. Fischer and Eleanor Wilson.

Eleanor Wilson and Alex H. Fischer have crafted a story about two hapless folks trying to improve their lives without a clue of how to do it. It has humour and heart and despite a lull in the middle, Save Yourselves! is goofy good fun.

The ending may raise more questions than it answers, but Save Yourselves! is a lovely little film, a warm, human, slightly sci-fi drama that will make you smile, if not laugh out loud.

Well-written, consistently amusing and offbeat without veering into indie-quirksville or going for broad, easy laughs.

"Save Yourselves!" feels much more relevant than a pithy, droll comedy about millennials fighting aliens has any right to be. Watch and enjoy it before it goes from comedy to documentary.

Why just make a side-splitting comedy with relatable characters? Wilson and Fischer go for the gold and throw in a few messages in this film, and they're pretty poignant.

With a fantastic central chemistry and witty script, Save Yourselves is an entertaining and equally charming apocalyptic affair.

The film does unravel spectacularly towards the end, but writer/directors Alex H Fischer and Eleanor Wilson should be applauded for creating an alien-invasion movie with a difference...

For the most part it manages an adept balance between satire, sincerity and sheer silliness that's ultimately winning.

A remarkably funny observation of human behavior in an age of reticence and awareness during chaos.

Things get a little weird, and the ending may not be as neat as one expects. But hey, these are tough times. A diversion like "Save Yourselves!" might just save your week.

Wilson and Fischer's film is about honesty with your partner and learning how to love yourself in the process.

A Sundance 2020 title assembled in the Sundance Factory where the Sundance Elves Sundanced themselves an apocalypse narrative.

An interesting take on the manner in which self-absorbed millennials might respond to an apocalypse now.

The film does a great job of portraying characters in crisis, while staying grounded and intensely relatable. It also serves as an apt metaphor for commitment and relationships.
