Metacritic Score

    Entertainment Weekly Owen Gleiberman

    Safety Not Guaranteed is a fable of ''redemption,'' and it's too tidy by half, but it is also very sweetly told.

  • 75

    Rolling Stone Peter Travers

    Director Colin Trevorrow and writer Derek Connolly keep the film humming with funny and touching surprises. And Plaza is a flat-out enchantress.

    That time machine - a wonderful-looking gizmo with some lasers stolen from a medical laboratory - really exists. Whether it works or not, you'll have to see for yourself. It's wort...

  • Fun movie, but I don't think it earned the ending

    I liked it! Quite a bit. If you're looking for hardcore sci-fi, time-travel nerdery, check out Timecrimes. But if you're just looking for a quick, sweet and funny movie, you'll enjoy this.

    If Kenneth was actually capable of going back in time, the movie did very little to support or explore it. Instead it made us almost certain that he was a crazy person who was stalking his ex-girlfriend. Instead, the film's primary purpose was to develop three romantic storylines, which it did well. And the idea of Kenneth and Darius (what an odd choice for a female main character's name) traveling back in time together certainly made me smile.moreless
