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.

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.

"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."

That's the classified advert which starts off this quirky indie comedy thriller. The heroine, Darius (played by Aubrey Plaza) is one of two interns assigned to accompany cynical senior reporter Jeff (Jake Johnson) on an assignment to track down whoever placed this advert and discover the truth behind it in hopes of a story.

It soon becomes clear that Jeff had ulterior motives for proposing this assignment and asking for two interns to accompany him.

The journalists track down Kenneth (Mark Duplass), the man who placed the advert, but he doesn't quite appear to be what any of them had expected ...

This isn't a time-travel film, it is a film about relationships and particularly what goes through the minds of Darius and her colleagues as they try to work out whether Kenneth is a looney, a fraudster, or whether there is any chance that he really can build a time machine.

Some good acting by the relatively unknown cast, a large helping of amusing humour in the plot, but it never crosses over the line between humour and farce.

I can recommend this film if you are looking for something amusing, light, and a bit different.

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

Quirky low budget movie that is not only funny but compelling. Spending the whole movie wondering whether Kennenth is crazy or has created a time machine is downto a great script and the loveable character of Kenneth himself. Good performances all round. Can see this becoming a bit of a cult classic

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.
