Review Wednesday- "Safety Not Guaranteed"

Yesterday, I went and saw the movie Safety Not Guaranteed.
It is about these magazine reporters that notice a classified ad from a man who claims to build a time machine. He wants a partner to go with him back in time. Three reporters go to visit him and work on making a story out of it.

It is a great quirky movie with a very witty script and great acting that pulls the whole thing off. Aubrey Plaza just keeps proving her great comedic timing. She does a fantastic job as the sarcastic young secretary in Parks and Rec and continues to provide intelligent laughs throughout this film. Jake M. Johnson also does a great job as the sentimental jerk type in this film. You might recognize him from the funny and also witty show, New Girl.
This film was screened at Sundance Film Festival and received a screenwriting award. It definitely received the award for good reason.
This movie is filled with intelligent laughs. It is a great feel good movie for the summer. I highly recommend seeing this film if you are tired of the traditional blockbuster, actually I just highly recommend this film in general.
  1. Arnau: What kind of lasers?
  2. Darius: I don't know. I'm not a friggin' storm trooper.

Have you seen any good films lately?
