This movie is pretty savvy to say the least. It's also one of those cases where it merits more than one viewing to fully understand and appreciate what is going on. While the front is a romantic comedy with a Science Fiction touch, the Sci-Fi part is actually a lot bigger than you may think at first. Or maybe you thought about it or read about it already, but whatever the case, experiencing this movie, is a blast to say the least.

We have more time-lines and more jumps than some people will be able to handle or even want to handle. There's a point where things can seem to be too much. And after a couple of twists you may find yourself going "come on". But if you are like me and those other people who loved this, you'll actually be craving for more ... which is something the director is hinting at towards the end ... visually but also in his commentary!
