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

Before the title sequence, when the tire of the Jeep explodes it sends the Jeep into a skid. We see a semi trailer approaching, and the driver of the truck applies the brakes hard enough to cause the trailer to jack-knife (this is shown quite clearly and dramatically). In immediately subsequent shots, however, the trailer is shown braking straight and true and there is no evidence to suggest that it was sliding sideways, but it is impossible to recover from a skidding jack-knife without stopping completely.

Quotes

Nick: Hold up. Your dad's right outside.
Grace: I don't care about that, and neither does he. Besides, I'll just tell him to give you another raise.

Typical sequel...
8 September 2006 | by See all my reviews

I got to watch this movie "The Butterfly Effect 2" in the theater last month. Not too much expectations, since it is a sequel and the stars are unknown. Just wanted to see how they would update the interesting concept of the first movie. Well, Eric Lively is certainly no Ashton.

Erica Durance, while beautiful, did not have much to show in terms of acting. The beginning was very slow. The first part where their relationship was established in a very prolonged manner. However, once the "butterfly effect" scenes were underway, the midportion was actually very interesting. It is just too bad that it led to a very illogical and unsatisfying ending. Certainly could have been better.
