An easygoing romance you might enjoy, despite the fact that you never need to see it again.
Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, 2012-12-13
Save the Date ... is appealingly ambivalent about whether growing up is really such a great idea.
Dan Kois, Slate, 2012-12-13
Save The Date's achievements are modest-it could be funnier and more affecting, and it ends with a shrug-but the film is wise about sibling relationships, the uncertainty of youth, and smaller matters ...
Scott Tobias, AV Club, 2012-12-13
Smart, funny, sexy, sad and refreshingly devoid of cliches, Save The Date occupies a higher evolutionary plane than most other wedding-themed romantic comedies.
Nathan Rabin, AV Club, 2012-01-24
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.
Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times, 2012-12-14
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.
Sara Stewart, New York Post, 2012-12-14
[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.
Rachel Saltz, New York Times, 2012-12-13
A merely adequate addition to the raft of romantic comedies for those pushing 30 without adult lives to call their own.
Ella Taylor, NPR, 2012-12-13
Save the Date is romantic comedy with aspirations to do something new. That's admirable but it isn't enough.
Mary F. Pols, TIME Magazine, 2012-12-13
Date works best as a collection of winsome, unconnected vignettes; its ideal distribution model would be piece by piece on YouTube.
Sam Adams, Time Out New York, 2012-12-11
Yet another unfocused movie about generic relationship quandaries.
Melissa Anderson, Village Voice, 2012-12-11
A basically plotless, made-for-millennials rom-com ...
Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, 2012-12-05
Calculated quirkiness and cartoonish characterizations make Save the Date shallow enough to be a sitcom pilot.
John Anderson, Variety, 2012-01-30
You won't be missing much if you can't keep your calendar open for this lightweight comedy.
