Saved! | 2004 | PG-13 | - 5.3.5

Two devout young women (Mandy Moore and Jenna Malone) are starting their senior year at the American Christian High School. When one finds out that she not only is pregnant, but that her boyfriend is gay and he's been sent to a Christian treatment center for "de-gayification," she is confused about everything in her life. She begins to question her best friend's motives and what being a Christian really means. Also with Macaulay Culkin, Chad Faust and Patrick Fugit. Directed by Brian Dannelly. [1:33]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - A young woman climbs into a young man's bed (he's her gay boyfriend), they kiss, they lie back, and we hear rhythmic sounds and moaning (he's bare-chested and she is in a bra). Cars bump up and down rhythmically and we hear moaning; one young man and a young woman kiss and she puts his hand on her clothed breasts (she's in a bikini). A married priest and a woman (not his wife) kiss. A young man and a young woman kiss several times, and young men and young women dance at a prom. A young man flirts with a young woman and asks her on a date. A young man admires a young woman as she walks away from him, and young women admire a young man. A young woman wonders if everything on a young man is paralyzed from the waist down. A man talks about a woman having "her missionary position." A young man says that his sister "touches him inappropriately." A young man looks at a gay men's magazine. A young woman speaks in tongues, appears to have a fit and tears her shirt open. A man takes off his shirt to jump into a pool and we see him bare-chested. A young man wears a loincloth type garment during a play (we see his bare chest and legs). A young woman stands on a ladder and we see up her skirt briefly. People accuse a young woman of having been a stripper. A young woman's underwear is evident under her pants, and a young woman's skirt lifts up and we see her underpants. A woman's dress is low cut and reveals cleavage, and other young women's dresses are low-cut and reveal cleavage, bare backs and shoulders; also a young woman wears a short shirt that reveals her bare abdomen, and young women wear short shorts that reveal their bare thighs. A young man has hickeys on his neck. We see pictures of the male and female form with their genitals airbrushed out.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A young woman crashes her van into a statue, part of the statue falls on the hood of the car nearly hitting her. Two young women fight, and one lunges at the other. A young woman is grabbed, shoved into a van and three young women perform an "exorcism" on her. A young woman threatens another young woman. A young woman hits her head on a pool ladder and slips under water, a young man slips on a pool patio and hits his head on cement, and a man jumps in the pool to save the young woman. A young woman shoves a young woman, who throws a bible at her. A young woman shoves another young woman. Two young women argue bitterly in several scenes. A young man is shown on a cross during a play. We hear that a young man, who is paralyzed and in a wheelchair, fell out of a tree when he was 9. Two young women shoot guns at a firing range and talk about defending themselves against sexual predators. A young woman speaks in tongues and appears to have a fit. People protest at an abortion clinic. A young woman steps into a street, and cars squeal to a stop. A young woman flicks a lit cigarette at another young woman. A young woman vomits. A young woman goes into labor and moans from the pain.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
