Day 129: Safety Not Guaranteed (July, 16)

All elements of a nice indie movie were present in Safety Not Guaranteed. Jake Johnson, too awkward characters, a lot of (wannabe) witty dialogues, a bit of SciFi... No way it wouldn't be so much fun and even endearing. 

Many users in imdb.com thinks like that - they not shy on their compliments. But for me there was something missing. It looked so perfect, so likable, but despite being a relatively short movie, it got me bored pretty quick. I couldn't understand why, because, as I said, it seemed so good. But the characters fell into a void, the story was badly told... I don't know. It just didn't work for me. 

However, I'll say this: when two lovely weird individuals fall in love, it is magic. There's no doubt in that simple fact, and even this not so good movie could deny it.
