Safety Not Guaranteed

Based on a joke newspaper ad that became an Internet sensation, this low-budget romantic comedy finds three magazine reporters on an assignment to hunt down a crackpot inventor who's seeking a companion for a time travel experiment. The delightful fable hums along to its own oddball tune, getting great accompaniment from "Parks and Recreation" star Aubrey Plaza and mumblecore king Mark Duplass. The inventive, small-scale script from newcomer Derek Connolly is a witty welcome in this season of overdone blockbusters. 86 minutes R.
