Safety Not Guranteed

‘Safety Not Guaranteed’ tells the story of a man who gives an ad in the paper that he’s looking for a partner to go on a trip to the past as he had built a time travel machine. A magazine feature writer decides to do a profile on the man, and seeks helps from two interns, a dorky girl and a geeky Indian guy. It’s a matter of time that the dorky girl falls for the time travel guy.

Safety Not Guaranteed is a 2012 American comedy-drama film inspired by a 1997 Backwoods Home Magazine classified ad – written as a joke filler by Backwoods employee John Silveira – by a person asking for someone to accompany him in time travel. It was screened at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival where it won the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award.

Darius Britt (Aubrey Plaza) is a disillusioned college graduate who lives at home with her widower father (Jeff Garlin) and interns at a Seattle magazine. One of the magazine's writers, Jeff Schwensen (Jake Johnson), proposes to investigate a newspaper classified ad that reads:

Wanted: Somebody to go back in time with me. This is not a joke. P.O. Box 91 Ocean View, WA 99393. You'll get paid after we get back. Must bring your own weapons. Safety not guaranteed. I have only done this once before.
