With another rewrite and some more focused direction, Trevorrow could have exploited the potential in his story and provided a worthy platform for Plaza, whose deadpan lead performance is excellent.

The problem is that your safety is guaranteed - everyone is too likeable for there to be any sense of danger.

"Safety" can't sustain its own offbeat energy. By the end, even Aubrey Plaza would roll her eyes at it.

Make no mistake -- Plaza is a real talent. Talented enough to deserve better material than Safety Not Guaranteed.

Plaza and Duplass do great, believable work, and it's a debut that both writer (Connolly) and director (Trevorrow) can proudly hang their hats on.
