At the car garage, we see a calendar for February 1996. Every day on the calendar is listed as falling on the wrong weekday to what they really did. For example, February 5 1996 was a Monday, on the calendar it is listed as falling on a Tuesday. See more »
I mostly liked "Switchback", but the last half hour or so seemed kind of anticlimactic, as if suddenly the truth gets revealed and then nothing more can happen. Granted, they did have a lot of tricks up to that point, but I still would have preferred a bigger surprise at the end. Nevertheless, Dennis Quaid, Danny Glover, Jared Leto and R. Lee Ermey do well in their roles. I kind of wish that more movies took place in the Rocky Mountains region (the most famous one is "The Shining", but another good one is "Sunshine Cleaning").
Anyway, an OK movie, but I would have preferred a stronger ending.
PS: Maggie Roswell, who plays Fae, is best known as one of the voices on "The Simpsons".
