Butterfly Effect for Kids
1 February 2008 | by jmbwithcatsSee all my reviews

Always Will is a love story first and foremost, but much more.

Personally I'm not a big fan of the darkness that of The Butterfly Effect. It's refreshing to see a new slant on changing the past more along the lines of Groundhog Day with Bill Murrey.

The movie is low budget, but with a good plot line and that always makes up for low budget. The acting is also enjoyable, the characters have a simple honest chemistry that just works.

A mother who loves him, a dad who is gone, probably died, and a step dad who is a total horses ass. With a young life full of regrets, missed opportunities, and hopelessness, but with a chance to change all that.

Of course if you think too deeply about it you realize if he did change the past how could he remember he ever had the black eye in the first place? Just as in The Butterfly Effect the inmate wouldn't have noticed anything different about Kutcher's hands.

The only drawback is they made the step dad a bit too mean spirited and slobbish, it was a farce to the point that it is completely incomprehensible why the mother is with him in the first place.

Thus creating characters that are too superficial.

Courting the girl ala Groundhog Day was cute though. The little kindnesses really make you relate on a personal level which really builds a refreshing story.

But the story really gets going when you realize how the opportunities he's giving to himself are taking those opportunities away from others, creating even worse problems than he began with.

The whole movie is obvious from the start where it will end and how, but it's still enjoyable getting there.
