The Butterfly Effect Reviews

January 22, 2004
An over-the-top supernatural thriller so ridiculous it's unintentionally funnier than some of his recent comedies like My Boss's Daughter.
January 22, 2004
If you approach this movie in the right frame of mind -- that is, with total contempt -- you can still enjoy it as a comedy.
January 22, 2004
[Kutcher] is far less interesting than Effect's concept, which in turn is far more interesting than witnessing its botch of an execution.
January 22, 2004
At times its awfulness becomes so awesome, it almost must be seen to be believed.
January 22, 2004
Even by the lax standards of January film releases -- this month is the traditional dumping time for studio films that didn't quite work out -- The Butterfly Effect is staggeringly bad.
January 22, 2004
May be the best movie Ashton Kutcher's fans will never see.
January 22, 2004
Maladroit exploitation flick.
January 22, 2004
For the record, The Butterfly Effect has absolutely nothing to do with butterflies, and its only obvious 'effect' is to make you want to take a shower.
January 22, 2004
Profoundly knuckleheaded.
January 22, 2004
Badly acted, erratically scripted and ultra-violent.
January 22, 2004
A morbid tale that careens from child porn to animal abuse to babies being blown up by dynamite.
January 22, 2004
Overwritten, overplotted, overacted, risibly incomprehensible.
January 22, 2004
Overwrought, over-the-top, ham-fisted potboiler.
January 22, 2004
Aside from this movie's switcheroos, it's hard to pinpoint the entertainment value here.
January 22, 2004
It's a movie as ridiculously weird as it is ludicrously stitched together.
January 20, 2004
This is a compelling and intriguing movie that toys with the powers of choice and chance in a way that is not overused.
January 20, 2004
Dreary and overfamiliar -- a strained bid for Donnie Darko cult cred on the part of its star.
January 19, 2004
An entertaining piece of supernatural nonsense whose sheer audacity disarms all (well, nearly all) skepticism.
