Start off good, but the end was just typical. [MAJOR SPOILERS]
I gotta say, the movie started it out very good, after all, the girl
right at the beginning of the movie tries to turn her gay boyfriend
with a series of seduction moves, than after hearing about the
restoration of the virginity by Jesus Christ, tries one last trick, to
have sex with him, the guy must've been a die-hard homo, for this not
to work, considering Jena Malone is one very hot girl.
Anyway, his parents find his all-male magazine and then send him to
some rehabilitation center and the girl after a while discover she is
pregnant, then she loses a great deal of faith in this space of time,
the movie is great so far, then she starts to hang out with the
school's bad girl and her old friend's paralitical brother, the movie
keeps on going, until this guy and the two girls, bad chick and
pregnant one, decides to use one of the Mandy Moore's character old
picture, from the time she was a fat girl and post it as wallpaper in
every computer, right after the school is sprayed with words, such as:
there is no god, Satan and a few others and the bad and pregnant take
the blame, and this goes on, until there is a climax, that's the point
in the movie that I didn't like it, and before that just would like to
say that I'm no die-hard Christian, I'm an atheist, I don't believe in
god and believe that religion is opium for the masses, but I'm not an
active anti-religion type of guy.
The climax, anyway, bad chick, pregnant chick and paralitical boy all
crash the prom in the Christian school, after some confrontation with
the popular all good Christian girl, it becomes that she is the one
that sprayed the school to get them expelled, well if the trio had done
what they did, humiliate her in front of the whole school, to me, I'd
have done something similar, anyway she storms out, and at the same
time, all the gays, junkies, alcooholical ones from that rehabilitation
center show up and tell to the priest or reverend that they belong
there, in the school, and they are not leaving, and they want to attend
the prom, because it is their right, and some other crap, the whole
scene was very ridiculous.
The scene was ridiculous because, why would all of them wanna come back
to an environment where people judge them and condemn their acts? I
mean, it is like a heterosexual guy wanting to come back to a
homosexual school, even although he is a heterosexual and the school is
only good at teaching how to be gay, it doesn't make sense, not to
mention, I have plenty of religious friends, and their convictions are
not that weak, like from the people in this movie, they all sudden
"realize", at least the priest, the all good/bad Christian girl and a
few others, that the pregnant chick and her gay ex-boyfriend are
"right" and have some cheesy lines in the end of the night like, "do
you think Jesus still love me", and the answer, "yeah, he still love
you", the girl has the baby, all of them get together and they live
happily ever after, THE END.
I was surprised with the good ratings, 7.3 at the time I did this
commentary, the movie is very annoying, because of the plot holes and
the whole conversion of the "believers", I analyzed the movie by the
story, not by my religious inclination or lack of it, and gotta say I
found it weak, It isn't much of a comedy this movie also, but then
again it doesn't try to be, I gave it a 6/10, because of the good
beginning, but the end will only appeal by those who chose to ignore
the story and just be anti-religion.
My Ratings: 5.5/10.

Christian school pupils find love and hate in an altar-ed state.
Jena Malone plays Mary, a young girl attending a Christian school who
finds herself in quite a difficult situation. She finds herself
pregnant after having sex with her gay boyfriend, in a misguided
attempt to "cure" him. Unable to tell anyone, especially the scarily
angelic Hilary Faye (Mandy Moore), Mary struggles on and finds herself
asking many questions about the faith she used to automatically hold so
dear. Falling for a pastor's son (Patrick Fugit) doesn't really help
the situation but, fortunately, she makes two good friends in
rebellious Jewish girl, Cassandra (Eva Amurri), and wheelchair-bound
Roland (Macaulay Culkin). Maybe they can make it through this
particularly difficult time if they all help each other out. But will
Jesus still love them?
Director Brian Dannelly (who also co-wrote the sharp screenplay) does a
fantastic job here of potentially upsetting lots of people while also,
surreptitiously, keeping them all happy at the same time. Because
Saved! can be read in a number of different ways. Sure, it's a scathing
swipe at those who follow faith blindly or simply interpret gospel in a
way that suits their own blinkered lifestyle but it's also an
affirmation of the best that personal belief can bring out in people.
There are no clear cut good or bad guys here and while it is easy to
see this movie as nothing more than an attack on religion that's simply
not the case.
Don't worry though, that doesn't mean that this beast lacks any teeth.
The script and execution are as sharp as, for example, Mean Girls and
you're guaranteed a good laugh with every other line of dialogue, as
long as you're not easily offended.
The cast are all absolutely brilliant. Jena Malone has never really put
in a bad performance on film, Mandy Moore is actually excellent in a
role that demands she shows quite a number of unpleasant personality
traits, Eva Amurri has a lot of fun and Macaulay Culkin is absolutely
hilarious most of the time. Add the likes of Patrick Fugit, Heather
Matarazzo and Martin Donovan and you get a quality cast delivering an
absolute top quality script.
Give it a chance, and don't shy away from any of the more uncomfortable
moments, and you may just find that Saved! has a very sweet centre, a
positive message and also an impressive gag ratio. It's a great little
movie that deserves a wider audience.
