Quotes

[first lines]
Stuart Conway: Life happens in four dimensions. Subtract time from the equation, and all you're left with is space. No motion, no change. Take away time and you change everything we know, everything we believe, everything we understand. Imagine a stopped clock. There would be no rush hour, no more rushing to get there, because you'd never be late. There would be no birth, death. No more broken hearts. Summer vacations would never end. You could never lose a job, your wife could never leave you. ...

The Worst Time Travel Movie Ever Made!
19 February 2007 | by (Baltimore, Maryland) – See all my reviews

If someone was firing a machine gun at you just several yards away, would you just stand there firing a revolver, in return? Most folks with common sense realize doing something so ridiculous will get you cut to ribbons! But not the filmmakers of Slipstream! I could not believe my eyes! And this was portrayed over and over again, ad nauseum!

Memo to Hollywood: Machine gun wins over pistol, not the other way around. When being shot at make sure you, at least, attempt to find some cover! Wow, did the filmmakers ever bother to take any courses in physics while they were in High School? I guess not!

Nor was there a single character I could empathize with! In fact, the story's hero was so shallow and obnoxious, it ruined any fun one could possibly get from viewing this dull, plodding, two-dimensional piece of trash!
