Mandy Moore was actually quite entertaining to watch as the Christian nut job in Saved. The film is about a few kids at a Christian high school down in the states. I don’t want to say anymore about the plot because it’s pretty ridiculous. The movie has a pretty good cast of teenage actors who all played their respective parts quite well. I thought the film was quite funny, though at times sappy; can’t fault them for that. Watching the special features you can see they wanted to make the film slightly racier then they were allowed. The movie points out the flaws and hypocrisy of evangelical christianity (and I suppose any religion for that matter), and does so in a cute way. The film is definitely work checking out.

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google": will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
