4.0 out of 5 stars Quirky and fun movie 28 Jan 2013
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

5.0 out of 5 stars Ignore the 1 star, he hasn't seen the movie 31 Jan 2013
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good film 25 Oct 2013
By Enigma
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Really enjoyed it. A simple, unpretentious film which really made me want to find out what happens in the end.

One reason I rate it highly is because of the believability of all the characters, and whilst much of the plot is somewhat tongue in cheek, the characterisations are such as to carry it through. It's difficult to make a film that mixes comedy with a story and gets one to complement each other, but this film manages it pretty well.

It's based on a real advert which appeared in a newspaper, and one of the "extras" on the DVD tells the story behind the real ad, and an interview with the person who placed it. Watch the "extra" and you find out that the person got a cameo performance in the film. A lovely touch......

Heck, I never normally watch the extra bits on DVDs, I must have really liked this one!! :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious genre mish-mash with a great story 13 Jun 2013
This indie time-travel flick is as outrageously funny as it is sincere and heartfelt. While the premise might have some movie-goers titillated by its sci-fi roots this isn't where the strength of the film lies. Or at least not where its emphasis is placed. It is the reason behind the characters motivation to time-travel into the past which really drags this film into brilliance. I know, I know - we don't need another film that leads to romance to add to our already heaving shelves, but I assure you, this one is worth it. But hang on, I've jumped the gun and given quite a bit away in a short period. Let's backtrack...

The film takes centre stage around an ad placed by Kenneth (played by Mark Duplass) seeking out a partner to time-travel back into the past with. The ad goes like this:

WANTED: Somebody to go back in time with me. This is not a joke. P.O. Box 91 Ocean View, WA 99393. You'll get paid after we get back. Must bring your own weapons. Safety not guaranteed. I have only done this once before.

As ads go its short, to-the-point and bloody well intriguing. As well as, of course, completely crazy. So if you're a journalist looking for another story to earn that monthly pay-check then this seems like a pretty good way to do it. Hey, you might even get a few laughs from it. This is what Jeff (Jake Johnson) thinks anyway - though he has ulterior motives for wanting to visit the town in which the crackpot 'time- traveller' lives. But we'll get to that a little later.

5.0 out of 5 stars More of this please 9 Jun 2013
As someone who has never rated indie / quirky films, Safety Not Guaranteed has been a lovely surprise.

This is one of those films which draws you into the story through its intriguing set of characters and subtle use of humour.

Its clever, thought provoking and slightly different approach is pulled together brilliantly by the main cast and direction.

This film has entered my favourites category and one I will be adding to my collection so that I can watch it again and again for years to come.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great little film worth watching 15 Mar 2013
First of all thank you to the two idiots who saved me the trouble of looking uip whether the film is region locked before I bought myself a copy to keep. Pity they had to sully its ratings in the process.
This is a great little film with a funny and original story line. A journalist goes to investigate a small ad posted by a man who wants a companion to accompany him time travelling. He takes two socially inadequate interns with him who end up doing all the work as they try to figure out whether the advertiser is mad or genuine.
In the 'making of' feature in the extras the director says that they started off with caricatures and throughout the movie expanded them to be real human beings and that is what the film is about. A sterling cast comes together and makes the audience care about them and what happens to them, what more can you ask of an actor?
If you get the chance to see this then take it, not many original fims come out nowadays and this is a little gem.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great film with more to it than you'd think
Great film that's as much about quirky relationships and how much you can believe wild ideas as it is about time travel. Great likeable cast. Would recommend.
