If you want plot twists and mind-bending, just stick to 'The Usual Suspects' and 'Memento'

a true original - and while it quite possibly contains as many holes as its protagonist's memory, half the fun is finding your way through them.
April 13, 2004
Lobotomised entertainment that's dark, violent, and hilariously dumb.
April 9, 2004
An exercise in ponderous gloom and doom.

Scary and disturbing, but also somewhat simple-minded and repetitive.

The Butterfly Effect isn't Citizen Kane, but it is far and away the best teen film that I've seen since Ghostworld... Kutcher or not.

It's quite surprising, I would imagine, to find that one can go back in time, unusual enough almost to require an explanation in the film. These filmmakers see it differently.

Kutcher brings a necessary lightness to his role as the guy who seems to make things happen around him, but doesn't want to.

Dude, where's my memory?

Bress & Gruber dole out their surprises with a calm confidence that belies their relative inexperience.
February 7, 2004
A ludicrous supernatural thriller, packed with clichs, heavy-handed symbolism, stupid dialogue and over-acting.
February 4, 2004
somewhere in Asia a few years back, a fruit fly passed gas and unwittingly began an inexorable string of circumstances that has now resulted in Ashton Kutcher becoming a star.
February 3, 2004
The filmmakers defy audience expectations and keep suspense building by continually creating new crises for Evan to resolve.

When it's all said and done, there comes a not half-bad twist. But by this time, we've endured too many reprises of canine flamb, plus Eric Stoltz as a drooling pervert.
February 2, 2004
A good starting point for a movie that could have been even better if not for the lackluster efforts from those involved.
February 2, 2004
Consistently thoughtful and occasionally surprising--which, in the traditional January movie wasteland, is no small feat.
February 1, 2004
This is not your typical absurd time travel fantasy film: it's much worse.
