Goofs

The main character was walking around and carrying his briefcase by its handle, so everything should fall to the bottom (the hinged side). But when he sits down and opens the briefcase on his lap, everything inside (like his sandwich and juice box and calculator) is neatly arranged without anything holding each item in place.

Absolutely Frightening...
9 September 1999 | by (Manila, Philippines) – See all my reviews

A more realistic portrayal of spending an eternity in a repetitious cycle, as compared to "Groundhog Day" and other films of its kind. The thought of being in this situation is absolutely horrifying. Excellent performance by Kurtwood Smith.
