Chaos Theory

Critics Consensus

Ryan Reynolds and Emily Mortimer do what they can, but ultimately Chaos Theory is an overly conventional dramedy.

    Chaos Theory is a film about miscalculations and misunderstandings. Ryan Reynolds plays an efficiency expert, Frank Allen whose perfect little life is left spiraling out of control when his wife sets the clock ten minutes later than it really should be. <a href="http://tinypic.com?ref=72rrqx" target="_blank"><img src="http://i51.tinypic.com/72rrqx.jpg" border="0" alt="Image and video hosting by TinyPic"></a> This preempts a chain of events that leads to Frank getting into a car accident with a pregnant woman turning his world upside down into utter chaos causing Frank to question his safe, planned out life as he learns some new information that, in effect, reveals to him that much of what he believed about his life is based on false information and so he decides to live his life based on chance from that moment on. <a href="http://tinypic.com?ref=33y3vnt" target="_blank"><img src="http://i53.tinypic.com/33y3vnt.jpg" border="0" alt="Image and video hosting by TinyPic"></a>

    This was a sort of romantic comedy.. and with that in mind it was actually a pretty good movie and general light entertainment.

    Ryan Reynolds is yet again back with a romantic flick & what's so different this time? This time, not only he gives us a sweet romantic feeling, but also makes you giggle & emotional. Frank(Ryan) is an obsessively organized efficiency expert whose life unravels in various unpredictable ways when fate forces him to discover various nature of love, decision & forgiving. It's very funny to see when an innocent man falls in various trouble & everything goes chaos when the confusion is created. The movie starts off with a fresh style which promises to offer the viewers something different. And the movie goes with it. It does offers viewers something pretty different than rest of the romantic cinema. Also, the movie not only has romance in it, but also has various comic parts & also the parts which touches your heart. The first half of the film surely deals with confusion & further making the movie humorous. But as the movie moves on, it changes it's track & it slowly starts flowing directly into your heart. But unlike other such movies, the movie would be liked because of its touchy moments. Generally other such movies has its good moments within its humorous part, but here, the situation is different. The first half of the movie is good & so is the second half(in fact better). Ryan is perfect for the role, he is terrific in funny moments, as well as the emotional ones. Emily Mortimer was okay & the same goes for Stuart Townsend. Marcos Siega does a fine movie with a balanced amount of comic & emotional moments. A perfect romantic movie, which does makes you laugh, cry & feel good. A beautiful experience.
