Safety Not Guaranteed

Apparently the ad in the movie was a real incident --- real as in a real joke. The ad sought a partner in time travel, in which there may be danger involved. "Bring you own weapons. Safety not guaranteed."

By the end of it I realized that there really is danger involved in the adventures of the characters: Not from time travel, however, but from romantic relationships, from love. Love carries the inherent danger of a broken heart.

The movie reminds me of Cold Weather. Both are genre movies adapted to the mumblecore style and set in the low-key beauty of Pacific Northwest. I don't recognize the faces of the main actors, who all talk in a very West Coast flat mumble. Both are a bit nerdy and totally cute.  And funny and adorable.
