100
Premiere
Boasts both wicked satire and a big heart, and as a result, is nothing short of brilliant.
100
Saved! is the audacious feel-good satire of 2004.
88
Fanaticism is Dannelly's target, not faith. That's what makes his film a keeper: It sticks with you.
88
Chicago Sun-Times
An important film as well as an entertaining one.
80
Wall Street Journal
It's a great accomplishment and, at a time when satire is in short supply, a terrific surprise.
75
The achievement of Saved!, a very funny teen comedy set in a Christian high school, lies in its careful avoidance of obvious traps.
75
Not only is Saved! subversively funny, it is unexpectedly sweet.
75
New York Daily News
As an answer to the spreading cultural virus of evangelical conformity, Brian Dannelly's teen farce Saved! is about three teeth short of a full bite. But it leaves an indelible impression.
67
Entertainment Weekly
The director-cowriter, Brian Dannelly, has great fun tweaking the way American Christianity has been born again as a commodified, suburbanized, pop-saturated belief system.
63
Philadelphia Inquirer
Despite a strong cast and a willingness to lampoon the fundamentals of fundamentalism, Saved! isn't as funny, or as wicked, as it should be.
60
The Hollywood Reporter
This comedic jape delivers some sharp jabs at obvious targets, namely the boosterish excesses of American religiosity.
