Editorial Reviews

Good girl Mary (Jena Malone) and her best friend Hilary Faye (Mandy Moore) are at the top of the food chain at American Eagle Christian High School. But all that is about to change in this "subversively funny" (USA Today) teen comedy about hype, hypocrisy and high school. Also starring Macaulay Culkin and Patrick Fugit, Saved! is "a boldly hilarious satire" (Rolling Stone)!

Format: DVD
There is no easy way to clear up the debate that this film generates for those who are either religious or nonreligious, or religious but not fundamentalist, but I will say this: I attended a Southern Baptist college, and pretty much everything that one can find in this film I saw in real life. I was in a play where a girl kissed me on the cheek, to have her parents pull her out of school the next day for immorality. I knew a host of "good" Baptist girls and boys who could have written veritable Kama Sutras on things they can do together without having intercourse. I have seen so many good things declared Satanic that one would imagine that there is no room left for God. As one with an extensive evangelical fundamentalist background, I really didn't find anything too extreme. I even knew some devout Christians who were just as mean in their faith as Hilary Faye in this film. Overall, I don't think the film is anti-religious or anti-Christianity. But it is a critique of the narrowness of many Christians, a critique that I personally think Jesus would completely endorse. After all, in the Gospels, the two groups of people He had no patience with were the wealthy and the overly religious.

The point of the film wasn't to provide a Polaroid of what life in Christian fundamentalist high schools is like. If so, they would have included more of the really nice people that inhabit the schools. The point of the film is to highlight something that Jena Malone's character Mary (albeit, a not so virginal one) says to Pastor Skip near the end: "Why would God make us all so different, if he wanted us to all be the same?" I have witnessed first hand the way that many fundamentalist groups want to cut back on diversity, want to limit the number of legitimate lifestyle choices for people.

I've heard that fundamentalist groups are lining up to protest Brian Dannelly's "Saved!", which is really too bad. This pleasant, charming and altogether rather innocent film provides a painless lesson about what true Christian behavior should be. The plot concerns Mary (Jena Malone), an innocent, earnest born-again girl who tries to cure her boyfriend of his newly realized gayness by seducing him. Her resulting pregnancy scandalizes the "Christian Jewels" clique at Mary's fundamentalist high school, led by the insufferable Hillary Faye (Mandy Moore). Some funny and lightly satirical complications ensue, enacted by a talented cast of teen-star royalty--not only Malone and Moore, but also Macaulay Culkin, Patrick Fugit and Heather Matarazzo. The standout, however, is Eva Amurri (Susan Sarandon's daughter) as Cassandra, the only Jewish student at Mary's high school, who sets herself in gleeful rebellion against Hillary Faye's hypocritical rat pack. "Saved!" sends up various affectations of both the teen and born-again cultures, but with more affection than vitriol. The film is not anti-Christian at all, just anti-Pharisee. That anyone considers it controversial at all is more a commentary on society (and not a pleasant one) than on the movie.

Forget all the hype you've heard about this movie. Forget the critics who consider it a great satire on religious fundamentalism and intolerance. Forget the critics who complain that it's not satirical enough, that it missed a great opportunity and went soft on religious fundamentalism. And forget the zealots who say this movie is nothing more than an attack on Christianity. Go into this film knowing that its foundation is a teen comedy and you'll probably come out feeling the same way I did; that you've just seen the best teen comedy of your life.

When I first saw this movie, I posted a review and gave it three stars. I can't stress how much I regret that now. I don't think I knew what to really make of it. I saw some of the reviews and heard some of the complaints about it, and think I watched it with slightly clouded judgment. Since then, I've seen it a few more times and am no longer hung-up on whether the movie is trying to impart a political opinion on me. I am able to see it for what's really there; a film with more heart than one of this type should have.

You'll be surprised by how many touching scenes there are in this movie. Seriously, they're some of the most moving moments you'll ever see in a teen comedy and they just keep coming. The best one takes place in the school's bathroom where the heroine, a teenager who's alone and friendless, carrying a secret burden many adults can't even handle, is tricked into confessing the secret by an antagonist. She breaks down and starts to cry, and is quickly befriended by the girl. Words can't describe what an unbelievably moving moment that is. It's the best I've ever seen in a teen comedy, and I grew up in the 80's, I've seen them all.

I went to a high school very similar to the one portrayed in SAVED. Obviously this is an exaggerated portrayal, but the underlying commentary is fabulous. I was a Catholic girl at a Southern Baptist high school and was told constantly how sad it was that I wouldn't be in heaven. Hilary Faye, anyone?

Mandy Moore does a beautiful job of being a completely confused teenage girl who is trying to build herself up by pushing other people spiritually down. She's absolutely hateable, pitiable, and in the end, almost likeable.

Jena Malone is unbelievable. I had never seen her before, but she absolutely stole my heart. Her character Mary is a wonderfully written girl who tries to do what she thinks is right, but it goes all wrong. Jena's acting was beautiful, and I look forward to seeing more of her work.

The supporting cast was phenomenal as well. Macaulay Culkin does a wonderful job as Hilary Faye's brother Roland, a boy stuck at a Christian school who wants something more. Patrick Fugit is the ultimate romantic teen lead as Pastor Skip's son Patrick: he's not airbrushed, he's not a pretty-boy, and he's not wearing eyeliner. He's just the sweet, genuine boy-next-door, and you love him for it. (He also does not overact, which would have been incredibly easy to do in his role.) Eva Amurri plays a very real character as well: she's the Jewish girl at the Christian school, and she's sick and tired of people trying to "save" her. She just wants to be who she is.

Other remarkable actors include Chad Faust as Mary's boyfriend Dean, Mary-Louise Parker as Mary's mother, and Heather Matarazzo as Tia, a girl who's eager to fit in with Hilary Faye.

As a Christian, I was not offended by this movie. I thought it was a very well-done commentary on typical human behavior. Religion is fine, but don't use it as a crutch, and don't lord it over other people.

I don't see any on the web or on amazon.com, its possible that one was never made (it was kind of an indie film) or they couldn't get the rights to make a soundtrack, just the movie.
