UA spikes its teen spoof

Celebs 'Saved' at pic preem

HOLLYWOOD — Offering cafeteria-style chocolate milk cartons spiked with Kahlua at Thursday’s “Saved!” after-party had an insidious brilliance.

The potent milk was consistent with director Brian Dannelly‘s belief that his Christian-spoof teen comedy has “subversive undertones.” The helmer described the pic as “Mean Girls” meets “The Passion.”

Asked if he’d seen the latter, producer Michael Stipe quipped: “No, I read the book.”

Among those who went from the National Theater to the prom-styled after-party were UA’s Danny Rosett; MGM’s Chris McGurk; producer Sandy Stern; and screenwriter Michael Urban.
