At about 46 minutes in, Kyle and Mike have an argument that gets physical. Mike slams Kyle into the rear passenger side of Kyle's truck behind the back wheel, which apparently creates a huge bash/dent. You can't miss seeing this huge dent when Mike then pulls away with his Chevelle after the fight is over.
Then in the very next scene, Kyle, with Sonia as passenger, pulls his truck into a parking lot and parks. And even though it's dark, that huge dent is OBVIOUSLY not there. See more »

Yes, it is impossible to talk about Repeaters without mentioning
Groundhog Day - a charming family film where a sardonic Bill Murray has
to relive the same dull day again and again until he can find a way of
somehow - literally - moving his life forwards.
Groundhog Day was a happy-go-lucky sort of affair, filled with
light-hearted 'what if' scenarios. Here, in 'Repeaters,' we're
presented with a similar premise, i.e. what happens if you're stuck in
a day. However, the results are far from Groundhog-like.
This time there are three central characters who keep reliving the same
day and they're all in a recovery centre, trying to get over various
addictions. Then, once they discover their new 'power,' they hardly use
it to help the homeless. Therefore we're treated to what people with
very dubious morals would do if their day had absolutely no
It's a great film. The performances are perfect from all characters,
the setting it suitably gritty and it's not too long. However, it's not
one for the faint-hearted. It covers pretty much all the nastiest adult
themes you can think of, so, if you're looking for a 'feel-good' kind
of movie, you better steer clear.
Bottom line: Groundhog Day + comedy = Groundhog Day. Groundhog Day +
action = Source Code, whereas Groundhog Day and nastiness = Repeaters.
Not one for everyone, but if you're looking for some gritty
sci-fi/thriller, definitely give this one a go.
