  • Begins as a satire, ends with a renewal of faith.

    December 28, 2010 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It's a shame the closing moral about a more pragmatic, inclusive approach to spirituality is conveyed with such a heavy hand.

  • The idea is inspired and the enthusiasm evident in every aspect of story and performance.

    April 1, 2006 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Wholly lacking in conviction.

    October 30, 2004 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • No doubt the filmmakers are bracing for -- even hoping for -- a display of ire from religious conservatives. But the truth is, nothing in Saved! stings.

    August 7, 2004
  • A minor work, yet it has a teasing lilt to it, and to make it at all took courage and originality.

Audience Reviews for Saved!

  • Mar 27, 2013
    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.
