Chaos Theory, starring Ryan Reynolds, confirms the underground vision of screenwriter Daniel Taplitz, who has re-imagined the screwball comedy in original terms.

Upbeat rom-com grounded in solid work by Ryan Reynolds and Emily Mortimer tells a meaningful story while still staying in-bounds with the PG-13 rating. Unusual Western Canada seacoast photography and upbeat soundtrack make for an entertaining film.

At least the film strives for its own quirky rhythm, which can't be said for stuff like 27 Dresses.

While gambling movies are beating the odds lately, Chaos Theory weighs the virtues and catastrophes of living life fanatically uptight instead, with those of the index card variety, and the results range from charming to zany.
