Movie Info

A small-time Vancouver drug dealer traverses through time in a desperate bid to alter the grim fate of his comatose girlfriend in this bittersweet time travel fantasy from first-time director David Ray. Art (Jay Baruchel) is a petty drug slinger whose relationship with girlfriend and addict Cody (Sarah Lind) is starting to get serious. After Art arrives home one evening to find Cody overdosed on the floor and drifting into a coma, he seeks refuge at the home of eccentric junk collector Harvey (Jim Byrnes) -- an old street friend who claims that the ratty recliner he has recently acquired is actually a cleverly disguised time machine. Immediately dismissing his friend's outlandish claim but desperate to fulfill his promise that he will always be there to protect her, Art collapses in the chair and wishes himself back to the time before Cody became addicted to drugs. Upon awakening in another time, Art realizes that the chair is in fact the real deal and embarks on a desperate mission to change the future and save Cody's life.

Critic Reviews for Fetching Cody

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

Ungainly mix of gritty street-life drama, perky teen romance and seriocomic sci-fi time-tripping never jells.

Top Critic

Ray's script shambles off in all directions and succeeds only in reinforcing our disbelief.

May 26, 2006 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

The final third of the script feels like an afterthought in a film that cannot bring any plausibility to its gritty setting nor its characters' plight because it began with an inherently sentimental plot device.

...certain scenes come off as surprisingly entertaining while others just seem to drag on and on.

May 27, 2006 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Fetching Cody, with its squeaky-clean leads and tidy Vancouver streets generally comes off like an ABC After School Special with a lukewarm Twilight Zone ending.
