Safety Not Guaranteed

3 days, 20 hours ago at Nov 25 1:49
Safety Not Guaranteed is one of those blandly smug indie films that suddenly turn cloyingly earnest in the end, wanting to play it both ways. Granted, I found some of the tone and treatment of Mark Duplass’s character to be generally questionable throughout, turning him from a deeply emotionally damaged man to just a quirky eccentric by the end being the main offender. But damn if I didn’t sti... read more

Safety Not Guaranteed

“Safety Not Guaranteed is one of those blandly smug indie films that suddenly turn cloyingly earnest in the end, wanting to play it both ways. Granted, I found some of the tone and treatment of Mark Duplass’s character to be generally questionable throughout, turning him from a deeply emotionally damaged man to just a quirky eccentric by the end being the main offender. But damn if I didn’t stick it out for Aubrey Plaza’s pleasingly acerbic and tender lead performance.

Perhaps my biggest problem with Safety Not Guaranteed is that ending, which tosses out the main thrust of the film up to that point: “You can’t go back.” As the film neared its conclusion I began to have a sinking feeling in my stomach that they were going to abandon everything they had built up to tha” read more

2012 Films - Best to Worst (104 movies items)

"There's a small and simple, yet perfect story to be found somewhere in Safety Not Guaranteed. But I'm having trouble locating it, due to the film occasionally shifting focus over to characters and subplots that are completely unnecessary. The plot is pretty thin, so in one sense it's understandable that the film got a lot of "filler" stuff in order to stretch the length, but I still found it to be rather annoying. The whole heart and emotion of this film lies in the chemistry between Aubrey Pla"

"A trio of people are sent to investigate a newspaper ad which they believe is a joke about time travel Hmm. The premise was good but this felt like an overlong Twilight Zone episode and not a good episode at that- More light romance/drama than anything really - dont expect any/much scifi I cannot recommend this one tbh "

" Darius & Kenneth Darius : "What makes you think there's something wrong with him? Was there something wrong with Einstein or David Bowie? Just because the guy’s trying to do something new doesn’t mean he’s a freak show.” " Kenneth : "At the end of the day, do I need someone when I'm doubting myself and I'm insecure, and my heart's failing me? Do I need someone who, when the heat gets hot, has my back? I do." "

"A really nice little indie comedy with a different turn for Aubrey Plaza and Mark Duplass pulls off his best performance. I also love the ending. "
