Wasn't expected too much from this title but it was actually pretty entertaining. Quirky and likable characters (even the idiot boss who takes them on their trip) get up to silly things, with some funny lines and situations in it. Plus the main 'time travel' guy was like a very family friendly version of Kenny Powers from Eastbound and Down.

Recommended for those who like offbeat movies such as Win Win, Moonrise Kingdom, Rushmore, Art of Getting By etc

Please ignore the low average, some person didn't realise US dvds wouldn't work on standard UK dvd players so thusly gave a great film 1 star.

Safety not Guaranteed is a brilliant and very quirky film that is one of the most original films I've seen in a long time. Based off of a simple premise, this is a very different film and a very different love story. It is very engaging, with great characters and humour (a lot of Star Wars references, director is a big fan) taking this above and beyond your average love story. Starting off as a simple story of journalists searching down someone who wrote an ad in a newspaper looking for a partner to travel back in time with, this becomes so much more. With brilliant acting and very good direction this is a film you don't want to miss.

Everyone has written reviews which are far more eloquent than I could write and have said it more succinctly than I ever could. Needless to say this film is BRILLIANT!

I very rarely say this if ever but WATCH THIS FILM!!! My heart and soul feel a little bit lighter for watching this movie.

Very sweet film and the characters and storyline both suprise you with a very captivating and sincere performance from Mark Duplass and Aubrey Plaza.

Please save us from the mumblecore – the type of namby-pamby indie film that tries to make itself look so effortless that watching the film becomes a chore. As a rule I don’t discount an indie film instantly and watch each one on merit, but the likes of ‘Safety Not Guaranteed’ have burnt me more than once and no doubt will do so again. ‘Safety’ begins being based on a true story about a man who placed an advert in the paper asking for a partner to join him in time travel. In this case the story is picked up by three journalists as a fluff piece and ‘hilarity’ ensues.

‘Safety’ is full of interesting comedic actors; Aubrey Plaza, Jake Johnson and Mark Duplass have all been good in other stuff. However, in this film I felt that they all acted a little too standoffish and it was hard to like any of them. Johnson is particularly unlikable, but at least that is a character trait. The other two are just a little bit too languid for you to get involved in their cause. I would lay a lot of the issues with the film at its snarky tone and this is down to director Colin Trevorrow. I cannot see what work is on show in this film that would make him suitable for the upcoming ‘Jurassic World’. Hopefully, the themes of that film will lighten the mood.

One other area that I found a tad annoying was that the film never really embraces the concept. Is it science fiction or a comedy where city hipsters make fun of a hick? Plaza’s character is meant to soften the tone of the film as she befriends Duplass, but how is this even possible when his character is just as unlikable as the rest of them. Populating a film with characters you long to dismiss is not a good start; the entire running time has a slightly better-than-you smugness.

By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 10 Aug 2014
Format: DVD
Safety not guaranteed is a low budget independent film production. The story involves three employees of Seattle Magazine. Darius, a smart independent girl who doesn't quite fit in. Her fellow intern, the shy and naïve internet gamer Arnau, plus their somewhat cyncial boss Jeff.

All three have come to a small seaside community in search of a person who put out a classified ad looking for a partner. But not as usual with these, for romance. Rather for someone to travel through time with them.

Thinking that whoever placed the advert is crazy and thus might make a good story, the three are there to track the person down and get a magazine piece out of it.

Jeff is also there for another reason. Getting back in touch with a high school sweetheart.

When Darius manages to track down Kenneth, the man who placed the ad, she manages to gain his trust. And has to go through a series of tests to see if she is suitable to travel with him.

Kenneth seems paranoid. And thinks he's being spied on.

But an unlikely bond results.

The three are about to find that sometimes, what you get isn't what you expected. But it might be better...

The box might lead you to think this is a comedy and/or a science fiction movie. It's not really either. The time travel being but a driving force for the narrative. There are some funny moments, but those are occasional and arise out of genuine and good character interaction.

It's really a character drama. All about wanting to change the past, and the present to be different. And how you can make your life better in unexpected ways. How safety isn't guaranteed when it comes to making life changes. But how you have to make the leap.
