As neat a story about responsibility as you can get....

Author: perkypops from United Kingdom
5 August 2012

I am absolutely staggered that this film is hovering under 5 in the scoreboard because there is nothing to dislike about it. Sure it isn't going to win awards but for it intended audience it is neat, concise, entertaining and does deal with its subject matter in a very clever way.

It is a clever take on Groundhog Day in that heroine Emma has three chances at arriving at where she sets out to be after helping a strange woman in the car park of the local shopping complex. Prior to that we have already witnessed Emma as someone who really does put herself out for everyone. During the second and third repeats of Emma's relived day or so, we see changes in behaviours which all lead to rather different outcomes. And this is done without sophistication, without being too clever, and without losing touch with the point of the film.

My only complaint was swallowed by a revelation at the end of the film and so you'll forgive me if I don't write it down here. You'll probably guess what I was going to say if you go and see it. It isn't a bad film and it is a rather good story, well acted and well shot.

Six out of ten.

A wonderful family film

Author: Sal Paladino from United States
17 August 2012

I really enjoyed the movie, so did my grandchildren. Unlike many movies they make today, this movie was a real story that didn't rely on special effects. It wasn't a movie with sex and violence and the story had a consistent and entertaining direction. It reminded me a little bit of the movie Groundhog Day, with a unique twist. I liked how the main character was given a dilemma and how she had an opportunity to learn from her mistakes and make the best possible choice, which required hard work. There was also a great twist at the end, that I didn't see coming. I would strongly recommend this film to be shown in schools because it was a situation that could commonly happen in schools today.

The movie was funny, but more importantly, it had a very positive and moral message about a young girl taking the high road when she couldhave taken the easy way out. The characters were cute and funny and the relationship between the 2 main characters was heart warming. This film was a breath of fresh air and my family thoroughly enjoyed it too. I wish Hollywood would make more films like this, well done writer, actors and everyone else involved.

Emma gets to redo the last two days of her junior year of high school.

This film actually was quite entertaining and those of us who watched it, really enjoyed it! Some of those bad ratings where given before the film was even out, so not sure how they could rate it? Even my 19 year old son really liked it. He did not expect to watch the whole thing when we watched it, but he didn't want to miss what would happen next. It was a very cute, fun and entertaining movie about Emma who tries to make everyone happy, even if it means compromising herself. She has an opportunity to relive the last two days of her junior year and these two days will affect her future life. I like the way this story unfolds! It was one of those films where you have to stick around to find out what will happen next. It is a feel good movie and I would highly recommend it to anyone!! I enjoyed the writer's sense of humor and you will enjoy the characters in the film! I loved the first review and I agree with her overall, but I would give it a higher rating! It is an excellent coming of age movie that the whole family can enjoy!
