The premise of Safety Not Guaranteed, directed by Colin Trevorrow, comes from an internet meme: a wanted ad seeking a partner for time travel that found its way onto You’re the Man Now Dog. In the film, a group of magazine staffers try to track down the author of the classified ad, Kenneth (played by Mark Duplass). To get to him, they send their female colleague Darius ([Aubrey] Plaza), who ends up being charmed by Kenneth’s oddball ways.

Colin: Personally, I think this looks dope. Aubrey Plaza absolutely kills it on Parks & Recreation — I’ll go see anything with her in it.
‘Ili: THAT DOESN’T EXPLAIN WHY THIS IS REAL
Colin: I blame the Duplass Bros and mumblecore in general.
