Anybody seen "Safety Not Guaranteed" yet?

I read about it last week and it sounded kind of interesting, but it was in limited release and not showing in my area. I see it is now, this week, so I’m thinking of going. Anybody seen it yet? If so, what did you think? Would I like it if I’m not a fan of talky art films but like good smart comedy?

(This is the one based on the real-life classified ad from the guy looking for someone to time travel with him.)

Wow, lots of views, no responses. I guess nobody has!

If we go this weekend I’ll report back. :slight_smile:

I have - I saw it at Sundance London about a month and a half ago.

I would recommend going to see it. I found it quite funny - not so much in a laugh out loud way (though there is the odd moment which is), more in a knowing (and in some places, sad) smile sort of way.

Let us know what you think - it’s the first time I have ever sprung for tickets to a film festival and consequently am ahead of the viewing curve, so I don’t have anyone to talk to about it (apart from my girlfriend - and we’ve done that subject!).

Yep, saw it last week in NYC. It’s entertaining, and very funny, and sweet in a weird way. Aubrey Plaza does a great job playing Aubrey Plaza.

The ending was kind-of a letdown. I was hoping for a little more ambiguity.

I don’t know. It depends what you wanted from your ambiguity I think.

At least from what I remember, there is no indication whether they have actually gone back in time or not - they simply disappear - though the guy has said he’s done it before, so you could take him at his word. Even then, there’s no real indication if them going back actually allowed them to achieve their aims - again from my memory of it

Just one question: Is the song from Scarface in it?

I saw it yesterday and enjoyed it quite a bit. It was funny and sweet and mildly demented.

Sequel! I’d watch it, because I really liked the two main characters. They had great chemistry and their relationship was very sweet and believable. Even if there’s not a sequel, Mark Duplass and Aubrey Plaza need to do more movies together.

I thought I’d seen Aubrey Plaza before, and I was right. I recently saw the off-center Damsels In Distress (twice), starring Greta Gerwig, and Plaza had a small but funny role. She was also pretty funny in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. I haven’t seen her TV work. Two of the three indies I saw yesterday starred Mark Duplass (the other being Your Sister’s Sister with Emily Blunt), who’s now officially on my “I’m impressed!” list. I not only liked him in both movies, I knew his name sounded familiar so I looked him up. Damn! The man wrote and directed two movies I liked a lot*, Baghead and Cyrus along with his brother Jay. To bring it full circle, the 3rd indie I saw yesterday was Lola Versus, starring Greta Gerwig, an actress I like very much, even when she’s in dodgy movies (like Lola Versus). I first saw and was impressed by Greta Gerwig in…Mark & Jay Duplass’s Baghead.

*and one I didn’t, Jeff Who Lives At Home.

Saw it tonight, and liked it a lot. A fun, quirky, geeky movie. I did not expect the ending.

Saw it Saturday night in SoCal. Not exactly what I expected, but a pleasant way to spend an hour and a half. I thought the end was left *very *ambiguous.

Do they travel back in time or just disintegrate?
