Ironically so, the film doesn't seem dull even though it is a mash-up of all those things.
What's more, as corny as it may sound, Save the Date illustrates everything that the word 'indie' brings to mind these days: indie music, indie actors, indie dialogues (words like 'like', 'awesome', 'cool', 'dude' you know what I mean), indie vibe even.
While the film tries too hard to be fresh and ultimately fails it promises a perfectly laughable and heartfelt experience, making a good use of the catchy soundtrack and its cast of many promising indie-regulars.
After a short conversation with Michael Mahan (during the American Film Festival in Wroclaw), the director of this picture, I rest assured that Save the Date aspires to be mostly an enjoyable and entertaining comedy and that's its unquestionable strength.
Don’t mistake his movie for a wedding farce, though.I think in a general sense, yes, but as far as what the actual movies consist of, there are not a lot of parallels between the two.
