Sarcasm, cynicism and hilarity all come together in this unlikely pairing-up of offbeat characters in “Safety not guaranteed.” The idea of a magazine reporter and his two side-kick interns chasing a story about some guy who places an ad in the classifieds, and needing a partner for time-travel, seems a little off the beaten path to say the least.

It is, simply put, simple, enjoyable and well made. READ FULL REVIEW
