Movie Info

After cutting his teeth on a number of television projects for the BBC, director Gareth Carrivick makes his feature debut with this off-beat sci-fi comedy. A normal trip to the pub turns into anything but for a trio of mild-mannered blokes (Chris O'Dowd, Marc Wootan and Dean Lennox Kelly) when a woman from the future (Scary Movie's Anna Faris) shows up and plunges them into a predicament involving space and time. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi

  • While hardly groundbreaking, this is smart, amusing post-pub viewing.

  • Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel is, unashamedly, a Mini Cooper of a film: small but nippy.

  • This is the worst film of the week, a dire British comedy, to which the only honest response is to soil and then set fire to the Union flag in the foyer of your local cinema.

  • What do you get if you take Shaun Of The Dead, subtract the zombies and add time travel? Sadly, not Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel.

  • Screenwriter Jamie Mathieson deserves a lot of credit for a tightly structured set-up... The trouble is the banter is a stairway to nowhere; the punchlines wither in the actors' mouths, raising weak smiles but no belly laughs.

  • ...an amiable, well-meaning bit of escapist sci-fi...

    Surprisingly good fun for a low-budget TV movie, but then again British sci-fi usually excels under these conditions.

    Brilliant on all levels. With a great cast and a fantastic story, Carrivick made a funny and involving film that captures you from the beginning and keeps ahold of you well after the film has finished. With a bigger budget it would most certainly have been better and more imaginative and this would be perfect for a sequel.

    If only bar trips here were as much fun as this trios trip to the pub. A quirky sci fi comedy that throws all the time travel mix ups out there. Its a fun romp wont be disappointed if you dont expect some hollywood blockbuster.
