To Save A Life is a terrific movie for teens and adults. It has a Christian theme, but is extremely relative and appropriate for any teen or parent. The movie is very gripping for most people to watch, and definitely one that will stay with you after it ends. It has loud music, partying, and subject matter that many parents wish were not so close to every home these days–cutting, depression, bullying, alcohol abuse, sex, pregnancy, drugs, suicide, divorce, and more.

This is great for a family or groups to watch together. Great talking points to address with teens about the realities of life, consequences, and the fact that things can’t always be “fixed” instantly or undone. Parents could rent this and watch it alone first, or just buy it. It is a movie that opens eyes, and one that you will want to share with/pass on to others.

For parents: If you forgot what high school feels like, watching this will bring back memories you may have forgotten, plus others you can hardly imagine your teen dealing with everyday. Way beyond pimples. Disturbing, but highly recommended!

This was one of my 15-year old daughter Elizabeth’s favorite movies. (Infact, she often wore her To Save A Life promo shirt to school.) I read the book first, then saw the movie with Elizabeth (she had already seen the movie with our youth group the week before and it was the last movie we saw together as father and daughter; she died of unknown causes about a week later). To Save A Life is one of the finest, true to life Christian films out there. It deals with real life teen issues: the cult of popularity, bullying, family troubles & divorce, depression, suicide, underage drinking, drugs, sex, pregnancy, and self abuse or cutting while following the life of Jake Taylor – star athlete, popular man on his high school campus, full-ride basketball scholarship to Louisville, and the hottest girl in high school – through one crisis after another to a personal transformation through our Lord Jesus Christ – the only answer to life’s problems. Whether you’re a Christian or not, this is one movie that parents and their teenagers have got to see!

As the subject title implies, I come from a Jewish heritage, and now attend the local Unitarian Universalist church. I saw the movie with my husband and 13 yr. old granddaughter, and we all loved it. Out of respect for Rachael Britts, one of the authors, who I worked with at our local high school, I wanted to see the movie. I was half expecting a Christain solution to everything, but I found it very moving for all faiths tackling many controversial subjects. The subject of Christianity was only brought up a few times.

As an open-minded individual who tries to respect all different types of people, I think this is a great movie for everyone. Watch for other books from the Britts dealing with other controversial issues!

On opening weekend (January 23, 2010), I took 27 friends to go see this movie in theaters. This was my second screening of the film, as my husband and I saw a free sneak preview in the fall of 2009. Upon the first viewing, we went in expecting very little, but were both *blown away* by the quality and substance of this “indie release” film. The quality of the acting, screenplay, and technical aspects surpassed everything I was expecting. It’s the story of a Middle-American high school senior named Jake Taylor, who “has it all”… he’s popular, has a cheerleader girlfriend, a basketball scholarship to his dream college, and is living up his senior year. That is, until his childhood best friend Roger commits suicide in the school hallway and turns Jake’s life upside down. He begins to question everything about himself and realizes there may be a lot more to life than beer pong and sex with his girlfriend. He learns to reach out to some new friends and finds ways to make Roger’s death a legacy, not just a tragedy.

I don’t want to give away too much of the plot, but I will say that this movie touches on at LEAST a dozen hot topic issues that modern teenagers have to deal with on a daily basis. This is the most realistic portrayal I have seen of a typical high school in a long time, and as one of my young friends said after seeing the film, “It was TOO realistic.” The movie is rated PG-13 for good reasons and I wouldn’t recommend it to a younger crowd. However I DO recommend it to anyone in high school or older. It is an EXCELLENT movie that *ALL* teenagers need to see… It causes the viewer to reflect on the impact that each person has on others around them and how much difference one person can choose to make in the life of another who is lonely. I think every teen will find SOME character to whom they can relate.

Though it’s touted as an “inspirational” film, there’s absolutely nothing cheesy about this movie. It portrays Christians in a very accurate light, with both good and bad attributes acknowledged (such as hypocrisy & imperfection). It’s not preachy or pushy with its message, except to say that you CAN make a difference in the world around you. It’s also not without humor that this movie entertains the audience, taking on several twists and turns throughout the plot.

When I first heard about this movie, I thought to myself, “This is probably going to be really lame and cheesy”. The more I looked into the movie as far as plot and what the movie was about, I grew more intrigued. As a volunteer youth leader at my home church, I received an email from Outreach Films about hosting a To Save A Life event which was aimed for small groups, churches, youth groups etc. and pitched the idea to the church about ordering the event pack and showing the movie during our churches D-Now weekend. Another leader and myself previewed the film before we showed to make sure the material and language was appropriate.

Needless to say, I was surprisingly blown away by the film. Some of the subject matter was edgy but perhaps that’s because of how real it all felt, especially for the students currently going through these situations and for myself as well just coming out of it from college. We showed the film during the D-Now event, worried that some of the students would think the movie was lame and not get the overall message of the movie. After we finished watching it, all the students were talking about the movie, not about it being lame, but about how real it felt and how great a movie it was! They found themselves relating with the characters because they saw them as someone they hung out with day to day or as themselves.

Even if you’re not a Christian, you will still enjoy this movie, or you may not. All I can do is offer my opinion, as well as, the opinion of the students we showed this movie too. The film does a great job of causing you to reflect on your life and circle of friends as far as what you’re doing to help those who are loners or going through tough situations with nobody to talk to.

Overall, To Save A Life is an unexpected reality punch to the chest that takes you on a journey of a student seeking more out of life and wanting others to find more out of life as well.
