Storyline

Barry Thomas is the average office worker. He becomes attracted to Lisa Fredericks who works in the same company. After work, Barry witnesses the murder of Lisa and goes to a bar to get drunk. Later that night, there is a storm and Barry gets a shock from a lamp's faulty power wire at exactly 12:01 am. The next morning, he realizes that everything is happening exactly as it did the previous day. The next morning the day is repeated again. It is now Barry's job--being the only person alive who is aware of this time loop--to stop the murder of Lisa, and stop the time loop or be caught in time forever.

Trivia

When Barry checks the department directory to find Lisa's office number, three of the first four names listed are members of the film's Art Department crew: lead person Gene Bishop, on-set dresser David S. Bridson, and assistant property master Ashley Davies. See more »

Goofs

About 27 minutes into the movie, we see a shot of a newspaper article bearing the headline "TIME BOUNCE THEORY POSSIBLE THREAT", sub-headed "Scientists Predict Experiment Could Cause Time to Repeat". The shot is clear enough that we can clearly read the main article text, which has nothing whatsoever to do with the headers or with anything happening in the movie. The article text simply consists of the following bit of text repeated over and over again: "For a new practice complete a documentary on Los Angeles dance pioneer Lester Horton, one of his former company members is searching for archival footage as well as presenting a dance performance as a fund-raising benefit. As the new times" See more »

Quotes

[on the "fourth" day, Barry is still trying to prove to Lisa that he knows about the time-loop Bounce. Barry takes Lisa's arm and points across the department to the hallway where Denk is entering, and again directs her attention to his time-line notes]
Barry Thomas: Look. Over there. See that? He's, he's about to light his cigarette. He's met you in the hallway these past few mornings, but today he can't, because you're here with me. What we have to do is keep Denk from finding out about the computer disk. ...

I watched it over, and, over, and, over....
28 September 2002 | by (Ashford, England) – See all my reviews

I put a tape in the video machine one night to record this unknown film called "12:01" - the synopsis in the TV guide seemed interesting. I kept that tape for months, watching it over and over, just to see the subtle changes in each day being lived again. Brilliant.

Everybody seems to rave about how "original" Groundhog Day was/is but I saw "12:01" on UK TV well before Groundhog Day even hit the cinemas over here. "12:01" may have been a low-budget TVM and may have its flaws but the concept of the day after day scenario is just as good.

The sad thing is that I actually logged on tonight to order both "12:01" and Groundhog Day but I can't find a UK supplier of "12:01" and it would be such a shame if it were never seen again.
