"Heaven Help Us. "When a girl (Malone) attending a Christian high school becomes pregnant, she finds herself ostracized and demonized, as all of her former friends turn on her.
You don't have to be down with G-O-D to know Saved is hilarious!
Saved! is a movie that will get to the hearts of people everywhere. It
so poignantly captures the hardships and comedies of being a teenage
Jena Malone is Mary, a typical teen attending a Christian school. After
finding out her boyfriend is gay, a vision of Jesus provokes her to
"cure" him by sleeping with him. But when Christian Mary finds out that
she is pregnant, all hell breaks loose! She tries to hide the
pregnancy, but it becomes difficult. Mary is shunned by her outgoing
and devoutly Christian friend Hilary Faye (Mandy Moore), and finds
solace with the uniquely rebellious Cassandra (Eva Amurri), who also
happens to be the only Jew in the school. Mary also finds a friend in
Patrick (Patrick Fugit), the pastor's son. Mary puts up with a lot from
Hilary Faye and her friends trying to save her- even the pastor gets
involved: "I want you to help" ... "You mean shoot her?" "No... I was
thinking something a little less 'gangsta'". But when Hilary Faye goes
too far, Cassandra, Mary, Patrick, and Hilary Faye's cool but
wheelchair-bound brother Roland (Macaulay Culkin) team up to let Hilary
Faye know that she can be "down with G-O-D", but has to be
understanding of others as well.
The movie is full of hilarious lines and activities, but it remains
believable. Malone portrays a typical teenager who is just trying to
fit in and have fun despite her differences. Parts of the movie had me
cracking up and quoting it for days on end, other parts were
tear-provokingly sweet. As a whole, Saved! is one movie that you can't
afford to miss. It just may save us all.
