Movie Info

"Good girl" Mary and her domineering best friend, Hilary Faye, are starting their senior year at the top of the social food chain at American Eagle Christian High School--that is until Mary's boyfriend tells her that he thinks he may be gay. When Jesus appears to her in a vision, she heeds his message to "do everything she can to help her boyfriend" and, to her horror, she ends up pregnant. Suddenly, Mary begins to question everything she's believed in, and Hilary Faye and her devoted "disciples" soon turn against her. As an outcast, Mary finds herself alone until she's befriended by the school's other pariahs: Hilary Faye's cynical wheelchair-bound brother, Roland; the principal's skater heart-throb son, Patrick; and the high school's lone Jew, an exuberant rebel named Cassandra. The group of outsiders band together to navigate the treacherous halls of high school and make it to graduation--ultimately learning more about themselves, finding faith in unexpected places, and realizing what it truly means to be Saved!

    Saved! is a smart and hilarious romantic comedy with a positive message. The story follows a senior at a Christian high school that experiences a crisis of faith when she becomes pregnant and is ostracized by her former friends. The writing is well-done, and is respectful to the Christian community while also offering cleaver satire about how religion can be misused. Jena Malone, Mandy Moore, and Macaulay Culkin lead the cast, and their performances are quite good. A solid comedy with an irreverent sense of humor, Saved! is entertaining and fun.

    'Prayer works, it's been medically proven, you know that," ha ha! Talented cast (especially Culkin) and a witty script make 'Saved' more than a typical teen comedy (calling it that is misleading).

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

    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.
