Safety Not Guaranteed (2012)

Directed by: Colin Trevorrow
Country: USA

Plot: Three magazine employees head out on an assignment to interview a guy who placed a classified ad seeking a companion for time travel.
Review: Auspicious, is the best we can say from “Safety not guaranteed” after watching it. A likeable comedy that began in a spirited mood but wasn’t able to handle the levels of satisfaction till the end. Without being charming, the characters were meticulously constructed and its odd behavior within an inventive story, gave it a fresh look. Some warm feelings and dark humor are both present too. However, I felt that the story was gradually losing “spirit” when approaching the finale, which was a kind of disappointment to me. With its languid sci-fi, the safety may not be guaranteed but a good dose of entertainment surely is.
