SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED
WANTED Someone to go back in time with me. This is not a joke. P.O. Box 91 Ocean View, WA 99393. You’ll get paid after we get back. Must bring your own weapons. Safety not guaranteed. I have only done this once before.
What would you do if you saw this ad?
If you’re Jeff (Jake Johnson), who works at Seattle Magazine, you take two interns (Karan Soni and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and Damsels in Distress’ Aubrey Plaza) and use it as your next story.
What director Colin Trevorrow and writer Derek Connolly have done in their impressive feature debut is to craft a quirky, funny, and ultimately poignant tale of nostalgia and regret as we follow the Seattle Magazine crew as they investigate Kenneth Calloway (Mark Duplass, of the Duplass Brothers), the man who’s looking for a time travel buddy.
For anyone who’s ever wondered “What if?” (and let’s face it, that is every single one of us), Safety Not Guaranteed’s your ticket.
