Movie Info

After an ill-timed and very public marriage proposal, fiercely independent Sarah breaks up with her overeager boyfriend Kevin. Sarah turns to her sister Beth for support, but Beth is too busy obsessing over the details of her own wedding to Kevin's band mate, Andrew. When Sarah suddenly finds herself caught up in an intense rebound romance with the adorable Jonathan, she is forced to examine her own fears of commitment and vulnerability. With honesty, heart, and humor, all five struggle with the trials, happiness, and pain of modern love. In the end Sarah must decide - is it better to stay safely single or to risk it all on love?

Critic Reviews for Save The Date

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (18)

Lizzy Caplan and Alison Brie lend the lightweight rom-com "Save the Date" more than its fair share of watchability. But the film is never truly interesting.

December 14, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Manages its modest pleasures because of its likable cast.

December 14, 2012 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

While Caplan works well in theory as an antiromantic-comedy heroine, director and co-screenwriter Michael Mohan just doesn't give her enough to do.

December 14, 2012 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

[It] may sound like Sitcomland, but Mr. Mohan's sensibility - visually, comically, in terms of character - is more naturalistic, more Sundance. It's just not particularly sharp.

December 13, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

A merely adequate addition to the raft of romantic comedies for those pushing 30 without adult lives to call their own.

Top Critic

Save the Date is romantic comedy with aspirations to do something new. That's admirable but it isn't enough.

Audience Reviews for Save The Date

Here are my biases in order of importance: Anything that Lizzie Caplan touches I think is golden, I love independent film conventions even if they are clichéd and disorganized, and stories that revolve around relationships starring anti-heroines make me swoon. All right, let's move past that, so we can get into the meat and bones of this romantic dramedy from director Michael Mohan. Read more at

I am a big fan of Indie films, and a fan of Lizzy maybe I am biased, but I enjoyed this. I found this charming, and enjoyed the storyline, lovely drawings, and fun music. I am glad that I ignored some of the bad reviews on this one. I would have missed out on a nice little movie...

Lizzy Caplan and Alison Brie are 2 good reasons to see this film. They both shine here. They have a great on screen chemistry as sisters. Lizzy Caplan has come such a long way, since her performance in Mean Girls. I like seeing Lizzy in roles like this. The film reminded me of movies like 500 Days of Summer, The 5 Year Engagement, Julie and Julia, Working Girl, and Bridesmaids. The film is well written and great dialog. My problem with the film, is that I thought a lot of the men actors in the film were miscast. I didn't think Lizzy had a good on screen with either Mark Webber or Geoffrey Arend. Also Alison didn't have a good on screen chemistry with Martin Starr. On a positive, Timothy Busfield was good in his supporting role. Despite the miscastings, I still recommend this film, especially for the performances of Lizzy Caplan and Alison Brie.
