ExcellentBy Christian from London , 16 Mar 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]This is a great movie. Its funny, its tongue in cheek, and it doesnt take itself too seriously. Surprisingly, Mandy Moore ditches her slushy 'nobody lets me live my life!!' teenage slushy role stigma, for an actually great performance of a fanatical Christian girl trying to convert everyone to her way of life.
Jena Malone is pretty good, as is Macaulay Culkin, again, another surprise.
Dont take the religious theme too seriously - just enjoy it cos its entertaining.

A believable slice of lifeBy a customer , 18 Nov 2013A genuine storyline filled with sympathetic characters. This film is lighthearted but shows that being a teenager is not easy, especially if you take a stand on something important to you and things don't work out the way you hope they will.
Could have been betterBy Randomfilmbuff (327 reviews) from London , 30 May 2010This had the makings of a good film - challeneg religious extremism, a great supporting cast but it fails. It isnt really that funny and the fantastic Mary-Louise Parker had a terrible part. Must try harder
SavedBy a customer from Bristol , 03 Dec 2009I loved this.
Mandy Moore as the holier than thou girl was excellent
Coming-of-Age TaleBy a customer from Essex , 08 Apr 2009The best thing about Saved is the characters; they are original and deliver some depth and challenge, albeit it in a humorous way. The story is engaging and full of life. The only drawback, hence the three stars, is the lack of ambition that comes across. The film could have been a bit more than it is. Otherwise, Saved is well worth the rental if you like coming-of-age tales.
clicheBy wilmar (17 reviews) from Ballymoney , 19 Feb 2009this wasn't very imaginative, though it could begin some interesting discussion
