Home Video: Saved!

Directed by Brian Dannelly
Released May 28, 2004

This Christian high school mockery is an unfortunate and obnoxious waste of time. This is a case where trying to make a joke out of a grand concept falls flat and turns into a pitiful farce. From its very start, the movie is falsely upbeat and cheery, to a disastrous point. Usual talents like Mandy Moore and Mary-Louise Parker are stuck in dreadful roles and their performances do not reflect their skill. Even Jena Malone and Martin Donovan, who do their very best despite some despicable writing, cannot save this film (pun intended, sure). It is the kind of thing that is funny for a moment, but then you should realize it is so dumb it cannot possibly be funny.
