Storyline

Nick Larson and his best friends Trevor Eastman and Amanda are celebrating the twentieth-fourth birthday of his girlfriend Julie Miller in a beautiful lake on a Sunday morning. Nick is expecting to be promoted in the company where he works, and Julie is planning to move to his place instead of going to New York for her Master degree. However, Nick is called by his colleague Dave Bristol, who is disputing the promotion with Nick, for a meeting with a client. While on the road, Nick has an accident and Julie and his friends die. One year later, Nick finds that he can travel in time and tries to fix the past, with tragic consequences for the future. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

When Nick is in the hospital after the first crash, he goes into a convulsion and the nurse runs in and hits the button and announces a "code blue". That should get every available doctor and nurse in the area to run into the room. Then the mother says he's alright now, yet the nurse never calls to reverse the code blue, and no-one shows up.

Save your money, skip this one.
26 September 2006 | by forasaleSee all my reviews

I had great expectations for the sequel to one of my favorite movies. When I learned it would be direct-to-video I worried. Such fears were more than confirmed. This movie, to put it bluntly is terrible when compared to the first. The plot is nonsensical, and takes place around a boring office environment. The acting is frigid, there is little character development, and predictably leads the viewer to little enjoyment, and lots of confusion.

It would appear the director of this film has not even seen the first one, considering the frequent mistakes, and plot jumps.

Save your money, skip this one. This possessed such great potential, but suffered such terribly delivery
