Trivia

The protagonist wakes up every day next to a poster of butterflies. These symbolize the Butterfly Effect, which she at some point describes using birds as an example. See more »

Goofs

When Lindsay picks up Sam for the first time, the exhaust on the car indicated that the engine was cold. Even if she lived close by, after only a minute the water vapor coming out of the tail pipe is not visible. On subsequent pickups, there are no vapor clouds coming from the tailpipe, indicating the engine and exhaust system was at least moderately warm. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Samantha Kingston: [voiceover] Maybe for you there's a tomorrow. Maybe for *you*, there's 1,000 or 3,000, or 10... So much time, you can bathe in it. So much time, you can waste it. But for some of us, there's only today, and what you do today matters - in the moment, and maybe into infinity... But I didn't know any of that... Until right before I fell.

Not bad, but falls short compared to the book.
14 July 2018 | by megmmotter-00102See all my reviews

This movie is definitely worth a watch but does not have enough character and story development. It's a great idea but falls flat compared to its source material. Seriously, the book is 100 times better.

For some reason the filmmakers decided to rearrange the sequence of events and leave out important lines and moments that made the book so impactful. I have no idea why they decided to do this because it really hinders the movie. The book is so emotionally investing and moving, and it's a real shame I did not get that same feeling here.

And on a less serious note, the main actress was great but she looks like a grad student, not a highschooler. It really took me out of the moment.
