'Safety Not Guaranteed' reviews: Aubrey Plaza enchants audiences in this 'unexpected gift' of a film
Indie comedy "Safety Not Guaranteed" is only out in limited release Friday (June 8), but already the positive reviews are rolling in for this winner of the Waldo Salt screenwriting award at this year's Sundance Film Festival.
The movie follows a magazine reporter and two interns as they attempt to interview a guy who placed this classified ad: "Wanted: Someone to go back in time with me. This is not a joke. You'll get paid after we get back. Must bring your own weapons. Safety not guaranteed. I have only done this once before."
Stephen Holden of the New York Times writes, "The movie could be a career catapult for Aubrey Plaza ('Parks and Recreation'), a compelling screen presence who suggests the next generation's Janeane Garofalo, but much softer edged."
He also calls it "truthful without seeming portentous."

Bam Margera's Beatdown: Check Out the Giant Waterfall That Sent Jackass Star to Hospital
Even professional pranksters get their butts kicked sometimes. Last week, Jackass star Bam Margera was hospitalized in Oregon after his kayak plunged over a 100-foot cliff. Contour, a hands-free HD camera, posted a picture of the cliff that banged up Bam on their Facebook page Friday. And based on the shot of the 32-year-old daredevil and professional kayaker Steve Fisher "dropping a massive waterfall in a a tandem kayek," as the caption says, it makes total sense why Bam sustained some injuries from the fall. The MTV reality star did have to undergo a hernia operation as a result of the drop, but fortunately, he's already on the mend. Last week he tweeted a shot of himself post-surgery in the »
