Get Saved!

I watched Saved! last night.  I really enjoyed this movie for a number of reasons:

  • crazy passionate warped belief system, most prominently displayed by Mandy Moore's character, Hillary Faye.
  • Mary's (Jena Malone) character decides that in order to save her boyfriend from dreaded homosexuality, she must sleep with him to "save him."
  • Cassandra's (Eva Amurri, isn't she Susan Sarandon's daughter?) brassy "rebellious" behavior, including dating wheelchair-bound Roland (Macaulay Culkin), whose relationship grew into a mutually beneficial one, rather than for shits and giggles.
  • Patrick Fugit, Patrick Fugit, Patrick Fugit.  I was totally crushing him.
  • I would enjoy my Christian school with Pastor Skip as my principal!

Well, there is more to it than those few things.  I was surprised by how much I liked it, really.  The cast was well-assembled, the writing was witty and biting, and there was a moral to the story (quelle surprise!) that was well-suited but not preachy.  I fell in love with a song in it, that I found out this morning I own, so no hunting for said song!  That alone saved me.  Get it?  Oh, I really shouldn't have put that in there.....
