He is sent back in time to put a quarter in a meter located in a small town on the edge of the Nevada desert in a supposedly simple time calibration exercise. However, everything goes haywire right from the start when he materializes naked in front of June Kelly in the desert, twenty miles from the town.

Very cool chaos theory movie, but poorly cast.
4 October 2002 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

The script is actually very interesting, but the director looked like he didn't care - possibly because his cast was so awkward or the budget was too low. The scenes run a little long too, but maybe it's the guy's first time directing. I have no idea. Overall, I liked it.
