Re: Safety Not Guaranteed - Grade and Discuss
I enjoyed this a great deal. This is a really sweet, entertaining and understated film. I've always like Plaza on Parks and Rec
and Johnson on New Girl
, and they both gave funny and often endearing (in Plaza's case) performances, with Duplass obviously being a standout. The movie keeps you guessing right until the end about what's actually going on with Duplass and the time travel bit, but that's not really as important as the burgeoning relationship and trust that develops between him and Plaza. Loved it.
'First Contact' is the tale of a man who just wants to cash in on his creation so he can get wasted on an island full of naked women, but his fans keep insisting that he's a saintly visionary who has profoundly altered the world. AKA - 'I Don't Want to be a Statue: The Gene Roddenberry Story.'
