Bring your own weapons.
When an ad in the paper seeking a partner for time travel comes to his attention. Magazine reporter Jeff, (Jake M. Johnson) and his two interns Darius (Aubrey Plaza) and Arnau (Karan Soni) seek out of man that posted the ad, Kenneth. (Mark Duplass) It's Darius who befriends Kenneth, and becomes his new partner in crime, but what's really behind all of this? Is he really building a time machine?
Aubrey Plaza's deadpan delivery is perfect for this film. She really owns her role and is fun to watch. The rest of the cast is great as well. The budding relationship between Darius and Kenneth is what drives the film, with Arnau and Jeff filling in the gaps with Jeff trying to score with an old girlfriend, and Arnau eventually just letting lose. One of the things I really liked was that they shot in Washington. I love it there. Sure it might be rainy and grey, but there's something beautiful about it. It's just a place I thoroughly enjoy, and it's nice to see it in a film.
Safety Not Guaranteed goes by fairly quickly, but it stays humorous and touching through out. There's plenty of surprises throughout.
