“..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]

STUNG :

“..director Benni Diez tries for schlock shocks in this giant-bug flick. Sadly, what's left out here is the fun..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN LIVES: WHAT HAPPENED? :

“..the movie is fun to watch, even if it isn't always fully satisfying. Too much time is spent depicting all the designs for the film that were ultimately scotched..”
by Stephen Farber [Hollywood Reporter]

JACKIE & RYAN :

“..a homey but surprisingly enjoyable ride through honest old mid-America..”
by Deborah Young [Hollywood Reporter]

AMY :

“..a tender, intimate, nuanced portrait of a pop idol with an appetite for destruction..”
by Stephen Dalton [Hollywood Reporter]

MALA MALA :

“..Mala Mala has no kinship to the rawness, if not ugliness, of Jennie Livingston's classic documentary, whose camera worked more like a curious open pore, and less like a hagiographic machine..”
by Diego Costa [Slant Magazine]

LARRY KRAMER IN LOVE AND ANGER :

“..the film follows the familiar narrative, which is neatly compressed in the title..”
by Matthew Gilbert [Boston Globe]

MAGIC MIKE XXL :

“..as Magic Mike XXL closes with fireworks and Tatum's winning smile, the film is obviously satisfied that it has overturned some mired tropes - and frankly, so are we..”
by Stacey May Fowles [Globe and Mail]

TERMINATOR GENISYS :

“..a bad time-travel movie..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

THE TALE OF TALES :

“..a dreamy, fresh take on the kind of dark and gory yarns that have come down to us from the Brothers Grimm and Charles Perrault, only here they're pleasingly new and unfamiliar..”
by Deborah Young [Hollywood Reporter]

PERFECT HIGH :

“..it's neither sufficiently impressive on its own merits to be a quality film, nor is it deliciously trashy enough to make for a pleasurable viewing..”
by Alex McCown [A.V. Club]
