Saved!

A teenage girl (Jenna Malone) attending a strict Baptist high school attempts to save her could-be gay friend. Unfortunately, she winds up preggers and gets the cold shoulder treatment from former pals (led by head Bible-thumper Mandy Moore). Despite all the controversy, this one's a fairly mild satire. It pokes a little fun at good Christians for their judgemental natures, but not for their fundamental beliefs. The script is a standard high school comedy (right up to the prom-set conclusion) and the characters are fairly one-dimensional. Still, sharp performances by the likes of Macaulay Culkin (no, really!) and some pointed jabs make this a memorable comic outing. 92 minutes
