Safety Not Guaranteed Reviews
Delightful proof that money and fame have nothing on ingenuity and wit, "Safety Not Guaranteed" is worth a million meaningless blockbusters. Even if it cost millions less than any one of them.
Cocooned in so-hip-it-hurts smugness, these faux-fairy tales perpetuate the sophomoric notion that deadpan quirk and snark are just cover for all that's really warm and cuddly and true.
The film almost spirals out of control when some overtly conceptual elements are introduced to the plot, but there's enough conviction in the performances to keep them tolerable.
A charming movie that blends comedy, romance and science fiction -- not necessarily the most obvious combination of genres, but one that director Colin Trevorrow and writer Derek Connolly manage with assured ease.
