Goofs

Someone knew Daniel was around somewhere. When an aging Daniel shows up at Harry's daughter's house she recognizes his name. As she never had seen him her only knowledge of him had to come from her mother, Harry's wife or Helen who knew Harry's wife and is pictured with Harry's daughter at age 2. When Helen came out of her coma she would have wondered where Daniel was. Even if they didn't know precisely that Daniel had gone cryogenic on them you would figure a vast search would have been conducted with Helen as a driving force his fiancee and childhood friend. As Daniel said she knew about the project and would have had the base thoroughly searched for Daniel. See more »

Forever Heck Yeah
2 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I was watching this last night, I didn't realize it was written by the creator of "Lost"... and I'm glad I didn't know that, because it would have tainted my opinion.

I expected a sappy love story with a sappy Mel Gibson who takes a nap to wake up and find himself falling in sappy love with the ugly, but sappy, Jamie Lee Curtis and adopting her sappy and bug-eyed son, Elijah Wood. Bless my lucky stars, I was wrong. Mel Gibson is frozen by Norm from Cheers after his girlfriend goes into a coma. He wakes up in 1992 (he slept in 1939) to a whole new world. No sappiness, and Mel Gibson wasn't even sucking as hard as he tends to suck (see "What Women Want" for really hard sucking).

I really liked this film, it kept me from going to sleep on time. You'll like it, too, and maybe even more if you watch it with a date because it's really about how love lasts forever. (They say "diamonds" last forever, but those materialistic bastards wouldn't know real love if it woke up from a 50-year slumber!!!!) See this movie soon, because you never know when your last chance to see it will be.
