Safety Not Guaranteed (15)

Safety Not Guaranteed (15)

Comedy, Romance, Sci-Fi

Three magazine employees head out on an assignment to interview a guy who placed a classified ad seeking a companion for time travel.

The critical consensus

Like Kenneth, its odd, relaxed style is surprisingly endearing, and Plaza is worth watching out for in future.

***(*)(*)Siobhan Synnot, The Scotsman, 23/12/2012

This time-travel romcom wastes lead Aubrey Plaza and dithers until its geek-pandering finale.

**(*)(*)(*)Mike McCahill, The Guardian, 27/12/2012

Here’s a smart, off-the-wall comedy ostensibly about time travel but really bound up with loneliness and the search for love.

****(*)Anthony Quinn, The Independent, 27/12/2012

Sometimes quirky is okay if offset with believable enough characters grappling with real issues. That’s the case here.

***(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 27/12/2012

An endearingly oddball indie sci-fi.

***(*)(*)Damon Wise, Empire Online, 26/12/2012

Takes away your cynicism and gives you back a joyful sense of wonder.

****(*)Jessica Lambert, Little White Lies, 25/12/2012

Their charming relationship heads in some very unexpected directions, quite literally.

***(*)(*)Henry Fitzherbert, Daily Express, 28/12/2012

It's not a satisfactory film, but it's well acted, funny in a troubling, low-key way, and offers revealing insights into the world of people permanently at odds with modern society and in search of ways either to escape or to express their discontent.

Philip French, The Observer, 30/12/2012

Where and when?
