“..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]

NIGHTCRAWLER :

“.."Taxi Driver" meets "Network" in this dark satire-thriller. Gyllenhaal is terrific, while Russo may have just launched a comeback..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

23 BLAST :

“..its better-known cast members-like Stephen Lang, who plays Travis' coach-don't thoroughly embarrass themselves, mostly because the pokey script and Baker's ambition-free direction don't give them much opportunity to..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]

by Chris Cabin [Slant Magazine]

LOW DOWN :

“..the movie takes on a haunting dimension, even while actively dodging biopic cliches and falling into long lulls where not much happens. Fanning manages to bring soulfulness to a character who mostly reacts to others..”
