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 How did I not know about this film before??? 27 Feb 2014
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.

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.

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

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun little slice of American can-do, will-do. 25 Jun 2014
A thoroughly enjoyable little indie from the States. Baffled that anyone could give it a negative review. Like so many American indie productions this embodies the ubiquitous American attitude of optimism and "can-do", as opposed to the widespread English sour, glass-half-empty cynicism so familiar from British TV. . Guest appearances too from Jeff Carlin, still curbing his enthusiasm, and Mary Lynn Rajskub taking a break from feeding Jack Bauer co-ordinates in "24". Be warned though if, like me, you have hearing problems: this DVD has no subtitles. Enjoy.

Broken-hearted social misfit Darius (a fantastically effecting Aubrey Plaza) lost her Mum in an accident when she was young and now lives out a life of no-boys desperation with her Dad (a short but sweet cameo by Jeff Garlin). Dad views his daughter as 'sad' and just wishes she's get out more and even get laid occasionally. Eventually Darius blags a job in Seattle Magazine as an intern where she brings coffee and reloads the toilet rolls (when she's not dipping her head into them).

But one afternoon she gets caught up in a sideshow her older boss Jeff wants to pursue - a small add that's caught his eye (a great part for Jake Johnson). In a Washington coastal town called Ocean View a man is looking for a partner to "go back in time with". That person he generously advises will get paid on return - but they must bring their own weapons and unfortunately they will have to accept - "safety not guaranteed". He also states "this is not a joke" and he's "done this once before" already.

Roped into this nutjob search is another intern - an Indian lad also in his early twenties called Arnau - a geeky cyber-trawler who has flame logos on his laptop because it goes real fast. But sharing beds in a cheap coastal motel when they get there - the two young ones find out why the smug lady-slaying 38-year old Jeff brought the story up in the first place. He wants to hook up with Liz McHolis - an 18-year old hottie he spent a high school summer with some 20 years back that he can't forget (wonderfully played by the gorgeous Jenica Bergere). But first they've got to check out the kooky Kenneth Calloway...

4.0 out of 5 stars Quirky sci-fi love story 8 Mar 2014
‘Safety Not Guaranteed’ is about three journalists who set out to investigate a man who’s seeking a partner to accompany him back in time with. What follows is a slow-burning love story between the female journalist and the man who claims to have the ability to go back to the past.

It’s all very understated. There are no fancy special effects or major A-list actors who could elevate this film to a big hit. However, it plays to its strengths. It’s never so outrageous that it’s an out and out comedy. And it’s never so futuristic that it’s an out and out science fiction piece.

It’s about human nature in slightly odd circumstances. And it works, just. So don’t expect anything too funny, or too out there. Just sit back and watch something pretty gentle and sweet really.

Just finished watching this, really bad. Poor acting, contrived characters, unresolved story lines. Indie comedy? There wasn't a joke to be found. Avoid.

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.

I was hoping for something more sci-fi and less teen. I guess the picture on the box should've warned me off this rather uninteresting film. Read more
