A personal ad placed for a time-travel partner prompts an investigation involving three magazine reporters in this quirky comedy produced by Mark and Jay Duplass (Jeff, Who Lives at Home) and starring Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation). Kenneth is a self-proclaimed time traveler who doesn't want to take his next journey alone. Intrigued by Kenneth's cryptic ad, a local newspaper editor dispatches cynical reporter Darius (Plaza) and a pair of other employees to get the scoop. Upon meeting Kenneth, Darius see past his peculiar front and recognizes the lonely soul inside. As genuine as Kenneth may be, however, his questionable sanity leaves Darius uncertain of how to proceed with her story. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
as a suspense writer, time travel interests me and i have written a couple of novels around the theme. which is why drew me to this movie in the first place. i didn't have to fast forward thru it and yes, it was slow in a couple of places but it was still interesting enough and cute enough to keep me watching. really liked it a lot.....highly recommend it.
I like off-beat little movies like this. You have no idea where they are going, because they don't follow "the formula." The characters were good, the actors were good, story and dialogue were good. Definitely worth seeing.
This movie works on the charm and quirkiness of Aubrey Plaza, Jake Johnson and to a lesser extent Karan Soni. After stumbling upon an ad for a time traveling companion the three seek out the man to find a story. What follows is some adventure and trying to determine if the guy is crazy, smarter than everyone, paranoid, or all three. Slow paced and not something I would run to see again but not a bad 90 minutes
We all LOVED this movie. It has a quirky art house feel to it, with genuine laughs and the viewer is easily attached to the different odd characters. There is a quiet charm that draws you in. The ending is perfect.

Great drama slow but that is what make this movie work. Just because something is different does not mean it is strange or weird. Everything has an oddness to it and when you get to know it or use to it clarity comes. Wow cool ending! This explains the movie without telling the plot. Watch the movie you will understand.
A great quirky indie drama. The good thing is that while the Duplass brothers are involved, someone else handles the camera so it doesn't have the annoying, amateurish zooming in the films they direct. Anyway, it's funny and touching all the same time. And there's a big surprise at the end!
