Editorial Reviews

After an ill-timed and very public marriage proposal, fiercely independent Sarah (Lizzy Caplan, Hot Tub Time Machine¸127 Hours) breaks up with her overeager boyfriend Kevin (Geoffrey Arend, (500) Days of Summer, Devil). Sarah turns to her sister Beth (Alison Brie, Community, Mad Men) for support, but Beth is too busy obsessing over the details of her own wedding to Kevin's band mate, Andrew (Martin Starr, Adventureland, Freaks and Geeks). When Sarah suddenly finds herself caught up in an intense rebound romance with the adorable Jonathan (Mark Webber, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World), she is forced to examine her own fears of commitment and vulnerability and decide if she s better off staying safely single or risking everything on love. By turns funny, sad, and sweet, SAVE THE DATE is a heartfelt and sincere comedy about the familial and romantic bonds that hold us together.

4.0 out of 5 stars Animals and Other Roommates March 15, 2013
Format:DVD
Early on in Michael Mohan's keenly observed film -- in fact, in the first shot -- we see our protagonist Sarah hunched over a table in the bookstore she manages, drawing Save the Date cards for her sister Beth's impending wedding, when the ding of the "Ring Bell for Service" bell pulls her and her attentions up from her sketchbook. More than just slyly introduce the title of the film, this brief scene actually sets up the entire conflict at the heart of Mohan's film, that of the individual juggling the obligations of work, family, and self.

As played by Lizzy Caplan, Sarah is aloof on top and a jumbled bag of conflicting emotions underneath. Despite personal reservations, she is moving in with her boyfriend Kevin (Geoffrey Arend), who is in a band with her sister's fiancé Andrew (Martin Starr). Alison Brie plays Sarah's sister Beth with an air of lightly affected conviction to the superiority of her own judgment; she chalks up Sarah's reticence to immaturity, telling her, "it's time to grow up."

Beth represents two hurdles for Sarah. In addition to being Sarah's sister, with all of the familial obligations entailed therein, she also embodies the straight-world, grown-up deference to consensus that Sarah, as an artist and as an individual, rails so intently against. "This whole thing feels very... practical," she laments about moving in with Kevin, with resignation. Beth, on the other hand, is incapable of seeing "practical" as a pejorative; she is fussy and fastidious with her time, her money, and her emotions. To Brie's credit, Beth never exhibits any malice or indifference -- she means well, but has simply allowed the onus of responsibility to rest too strongly upon her.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great quirky movie January 4, 2013
By Roni
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Lizzy Caplan steals your heart as a complex, self gaurded 30something who has love thrown at her when it's the farthest thing she wants. She most choose between the love she has become comfortable with, and the rebound guy turned soulmate. As well as her sister's (Alison Brie) wedding witch she feels obligated to help with. Great performances from Mark Webber, Geoffrey Arend and Martin Starr also.

5.0 out of 5 stars Commitment-phobe. June 12, 2013
Format:DVD
Save the Date is a sweet and yet serious indie flick about two sisters who are as different as night and day. Sarah is terrified of commitment (Lizzy Caplan) and Beth (Alison Brie) is happily engaged. Sarah's live-in boyfriend proposes to her in a very public setting and she breaks up with him, and immediately begins a sexual relationship with Jonathan (Mark Webber). Beth is cynical about Sarah's new situation, she feels her sister is just passing time and is afraid to take risks in her safe little world. I thought Lizzy Caplan and Mark Webber have intense and wonderful chemistry, and I also thought Caplan's performance was heartbreaking and electric, this is the best I've ever seen her. Save the Date is a great film, it's not for everyone but if you're a fan of indie flicks then this one is for you. Enjoy!

I like Lizzy Caplan a lot and enjoyed the story between sisters here. Overall, a pretty good movie, although I didn't love the ending.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just indie enough! January 21, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Awesome performance by Lizzy Caplan! This has just enough indie appeal to make it thoughtful and realistic, but not so much where you're annoyed by depressing stark reality. Funny and appealing, it's a nice change from big studio productions.

Great writing and excellent performances from the five main actors. It has a light, spacey quality that kept me from ever getting bored. Good stuff!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved the movie January 10, 2013
By Karen
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I rented the movie with some of my girlfriends and really enjoyed it... so did they. There are some funny parts but to me it is just a well done movie. It's sort of a romance but has some seriously hilarious parts. I'm not a fan of a lot of romantic movies (hated the Notebook, etc.) but this has a different feel. Feels more real to me. I'm going to rent it again with another group of girlfriends.
