55 Movies to Get You to Christmas – #41

Safety Not Guaranteed
“I have no funk.  I am totally funkless.”


    I was really excited for this movie to come out, then I super slacked on watching it for no real reason.  There are two people who I am convinced can do no wrong.  Those people are Aubrey Plaza and Jennifer Lawrence.  I stand by that statement; they’re essentially my heroes.  Aubrey Plaza is fantastic in this movie (and everything she’s ever been in, obviously), as are the other actors (shout out to Jake Johnson for being perfect in his projects as well).  
    To be honest, despite the talented cast, and overall pleasant quality of the film, I thought it was just alright.  It didn’t blow my mind, or wow me or excite me, it just sort of kept me busy for an hour and a half.  I was disappointed.
