What a great movie! As soon as I saw Chris O’Dowd (IT Crowd), diverse-travel-xvidI knew this is going to be good. A definition of a hidden gem or a highly underrated movie that’s even today relatively unknown. Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel combines great story and acting with amazing visual effects (it’s a shame that those scenes were so short) and the end result is phenomenal. This being a relatively small movie, I guess they had to use their budget carefully. Three blokes, working at dead end jobs meet up in a pub to drink some beers.

There they will discover a time portal and will have to face all the consequences of time travel. When it comes to time travel it is very easy to get lost in the story twists and almost impossible events (did someone say Lost), but this movie did stick to the subject. It is very entertaining and actually quite demanding to model different time-lines in your head in an effort to make sense or predict events in this movie. This little game is always fun. Nice addition to the British cast was Anna Faris, who apparently cannot get away from dumb blonds’ roles. Anyway, not to bore you to much, this is a thoroughly enjoyable movie, especially if you are a fan of time travel movies.

Fun Facts: One of the most famous time travel short stories, ‘A Sound of Thunder’ by Ray Bradbury, where a time traveler changes the future (his present) by stepping on a butterfly in the distant past, is referenced during a discussion of the ‘rules’ of time travel, with Pete saying “You can’t tread on any butterflies”
