Goofs

Following the last use of the device, Stewart is back in the bank talking to the teller again. When he finishes, he just casually walks out. While the FBI agent had looked outside and saw the robber van driving away, Stewart didn't have that information and still should have thought that the robbery was about to take place again.

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. ...

Could have been good.
16 May 2006 | by (Queensland, Australia) – See all my reviews

Just watched this on DVD. Potentially a good idea, spoiled by woeful direction and some of the worst acting I have seen outside of a school play. Sean Astin puts in a reasonable performance and Vinnie Jones tries hard, but the rest of the cast was appalling. It's almost as if the principal cast was signed up, locations scouted, and then they knocked on doors at their locations and asked people if they wanted to be in a movie. The story had promise but it all fell in a heap. Awful. Time travel movies can tend to be disjointed, but if it's done well it all makes sense in the end. This makes sense it just doesn't seem worth the effort of watching. I ended up sticking with it till the end and was not rewarded for my efforts.
