Everyone wants to be like Mary and her best friend Hilary Faye at American Eagle Christian High School. But all that is about to change in this cool teen comedy about life, love and high school. With wicked performances from an exciting young cast including pop sensation Mandy Moore and Jena Malone, Saved! is jam-packed with heavenly humour!
More than just a teen movie.

Despite its looks 'Saved!' is actually a pretty good satire on right-wing Christianity pushing its own political and moral views on others. The story is well thought out and often quite funny, though it does get a bit sappy towards the end. If you like edgy teen comedies like 'Mean Girls', Pretty Persuasion' and 'Election' then this is well worth a rental.
It's very American about a Christian High School, so it may resound better in the US, but good actors and a story about friendship and tolerance makes it watchable for us too. Fundamentalists were not amused according to the director.
