100
USA Today - Claudia Puig
It's equally endearing as a sweetly funny romance between two likable oddballs and as a low-tech time-travel thriller, and has something profound to say about making the most of the present.

Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
Safety Not Guaranteed not only has dialogue that's about something, but characters who have some depth and dimension.
80
New York Daily News - Elizabeth Weitzman
Delightful proof that money and fame have nothing on ingenuity and wit, Safety Not Guaranteed is worth a million meaningless blockbusters.

The Hollywood Reporter - John DeFore
Aubrey Plaza proves she can carry a film with this multiplex-friendly comedy about time travel.

Safety Not Guaranteed (2012)


Darius is a young intern at a Seattle-based magazine and jumps at the chance to investigate the author of a classified ad seeking someone to travel back in time with. Along with Jeff, the staff writer, and Arnau, a fellow intern, the three go on a road trip to a coastal town. While Jeff just wants to chase after his high school crush and Arnau wants some kind of life experience, Darius spends her time with Kenneth, a man who believes that he has built a time machine. The closer they become and the more they understand about each other, the less clear it becomes if Kenneth is just crazy or if he actually is going to successfully travel back in time.
