The script, written by Jamie Mathieson, follows three social outcasts -- two geeks and a cynic -- as they attempt to navigate a time-travel conundrum in the middle of a British pub. Faris plays a girl from the future who sets the adventure in motion.Written by
When Ray first meets Cassie, she is wearing a necklace with a butterfly. This is possibly a nod to one of the most famous time travel short stories, "A Sound of Thunder" by Ray Bradbury, where a time traveler changes the future (his present) by stepping on a butterfly in the distant past.

Time travel. It'll turn your brain into spaghetti if you let it. Best not to think about it. Best just to get on with the job in hand.

We're expecting any resistance to be light, because the ancestors of our enemies have yet to evolve any thumbs... or indeed spines.

SPOILER: After the end credits have finished, a 20 second scene features Toby (Dean Wootton) being chased by an animalistic double. As Ray (Chris O'Dowd) and Pete (Dean Lennox Kelly) look on, a double of Pete says "this is all getting a little bit too complicated." See more »
This movie is so far one of the best British comedies I've ever watched. The dialogs are funny, the story is well planned, and although you might not expect any high climax's due to it's limited production fee's, my heart was beating right out of my chest when the climax was reached!!
The character development was great, the beginning was funny and charming but I was slightly worried/put off by the beginning to think it was going to be boring, but stick with it for 5 more minutes and I'll swear you won't regret it! Anna Faris delivers a great performance as she sparks the silver screen with her natural abilities of a comedian and all the other actors such as Chris O'Dowd, Dean Lennox Kelly etc.. both interacts realistically with each other, forming brilliant chemistry.
This movie is for 'Science Fiction' lovers as well as people who are generally into space and time travel. There aren't any really mushy and romantic scenes, a mild sense of swearing, but all for the cynical outcome. DO WATCH! You might want to re-watch it again and again!
