“..touching, generous, sweet, this little slip of a movie puts you under some kind of spell..”
by Mary F. Pols [TIME Magazine]
“..this intentionally meta movie feels less subversive than Safety Not Guaranteed..”
by Karina Longworth [Village Voice]
4 of 5

“..they and their actors create humor and heart by treating the outlandish scenario with complete respect..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News]
“..the resulting film is a slight, wistful comedy that, at least up to the ambitious but unsatisfying final scenes, combines sci-fi and rom-com to pleasing effect..”
by Dana Stevens [Slate]
3 of 4

“..takes the risk of having feelings, and it's richer for it..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
2 of 5

“..something fundamentally bogus lies at the "warm" heart of "Safety Not Guaranteed,"..”
by Kathleen Murphy [MSN Movies]
4.5 of 5

“..movies with a voice as strong, strange, smart and yes, sincere as "Safety Not Guaranteed" deserve to be heard long after the festival's end..”
by James Rocchi [MSN Movies]
Review rate : B

“..it's too tidy by half, but it is also very sweetly told..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
3 of 4

“..director Colin Trevorrow and writer Derek Connolly keep the film humming with funny and touching surprises. And Plaza is a flat-out enchantress..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
“..casually realistic, with semi-improvised dialogue and low-tech production values, it is truthful without seeming portentous..”
by Stephen Holden [New York Times]
“..because "Safety Not Guaranteed" is wholly committed to all of its odd characters, we are swayed by them as well..”
by Kenneth Turan [Los Angeles Times]

LATEST REVIEWS

A HAUNTED HOUSE 2 :

“..the script is lazy, recycling countless genre cliches rather than inventing novel twists..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

MAKE YOUR MOVE :

“.."Make Your Move" is an underwritten mess..”
by Inkoo Kang [LA Times]

KID CANNABIS :

“..this wild story sells itself, no narration needed..”
by Neil Genzlinger [New York Times]

BEARS :

“..another typically engaging, vividly shot entry in the successful Disney wildlife series..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]

A PROMISE :

“..awkward, passionless drama conveys neither the sensuality nor the drawn-out sense of longing required..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

FADING GIGOLO :

“..this second film is the keeper: the kind of keenly observed cultural clash that still finds room for dancing, a sultry fish-deboning (you just have to see it) and awakening..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]

TIME IS ILLMATIC :

“..the documentary offers a number of reasons to appreciate its ongoing legacy, with sufficient production values to hold the tribute together..”
by Eric Kohn [indieWIRE]

HEAVEN IS FOR REAL :

“..a supposedly true story that uses faulty logic to reduce the complexity of faith to a fairy-tale. By rights, it should displease atheists and believers alike..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

ANTBOY :

“.."Antboy" is peppered with fun, cleverly shot and edited action bits as well as apropos comic-book style visuals..”
by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]

13 SINS :

“..a creepy little diversion that ultimately unravels long before its hero's fragile psyche does..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
