A Really Good Teen Comedy!,
This review is from: Saved! [DVD] (DVD)Mary is a typical christian teenager, that is until she falls pregnant & the father of the baby is sent off to a camp.
Mary is left on her own, decieding that she doesn't believe in God anymore. Her friends abandon her but she befriends wild child Cassandra & wheel chair-bound Rowland.
The comedy in this film is predominantly black comedy, at times the movie is really funny. It puts across an interesting portrayal of the life of a teenage Christian & the dilemas faced by adolescents in general (wanting to fit in, having the right hairstyle).
Saved is a great teen comedy, its not about sex or drugs or hot jocks its about the struggles of adolescents (& of course that includes teen pregnancy.)
Although with all teen comedies there are the inevitable stereotypes; the popular mean girl, the hot guy that likees her back & the dumb one of the group. The movie also highlights the narrow-mindedness of Christian society in the dealings with homosexuals & teen pregnancy, as a non-christian I was more than happy to see this portrayed on screen!
Anyways, agood film, not groundbreaking but if your looking for a slightly different teen comedy this is one of the best one on offer.
