You people used to make happy movies. Singing in the Rain, Casablanca, Night at the Opera, Papillon, well okay, maybe not that last one, but not anymore. Now, every film you make is so full of angst that the popcorn comes with bitter instead of butter. This film is more of the same. Here you take a great idea, that of a young man who discovers a way to time travel, and turn it into a collection of hideous events. What were you thinking? Sure, there are some interesting moments and you certainly don't want everything to always turn out cheery and time travel does go against the 4th, 9th and 11th laws of thermodynamics but for the right story we're willing to forego those. Well, maybe not the 11th law. We liked the idea and we liked the characters, sort of. We even liked the ending. We just wish we had been driven there by a different route.
