Over the weekend we watched “Safety Not Guaranteed,” with Aubrey Plaza, Jake Johnson, and a bunch of other awesome people.
We really enjoyed this movie. Adam is a little bit nicer critic than I am…I am the worst, terribly picky and not easily impressed.
But, this movie gets big 2 thumbs up from me 🙂
Basically some magazine writers decide to write a story about an add they found in the classified looking for someone to travel back in time. They wanted to follow up and see if the person who placed the add was serious or what it all entailed and thought they might get a funny story out of it. So they answer his add and, well training ensues. It was captivating to see how it all comes together and how they prepare for their “journey back in time.” It’s a great story that has a lot of heart.
I haven’t heard of Mark Duplass before, the guy who put the add in, but I thought he played his part really well. He made me smile 🙂
So next time you’re pacing around the movie store or flipping through redbox, give Safety Not Guaranteed a shot…pretty sure you’ll dig it! And if, like me, your movie picking privileges get taken away because you take forever to chose and either pick a really bad one or one you’ve seen a million times…this one is a sure fire win! Maybe, just maybe, you’ll even get to pick the next one 😉
