Trivia

In one scene, one of the group is attempting to connect two power cables together in order to make the time travel machine work, but he states that they're not long enough and therefore don't reach. This is a possible nod to Back To The Future where Doc is trying to connect two power cables together but they don't reach because one is snagged on a tree branch. See more »

Goofs

When the group first discovers the schematics for the time machine, they incredulously spout a bunch of tech-terms contained within the documents trying to understand what the machine is used for. Two of the terms they read, back to back, are "Engine Pressure Ratio" and "Course Deviation Indicator," which are aviation terms (to do with turbine engine thrust and airway navigation, respectively); neither phrase seems to have anything to do with how the time machine works.

Funny Adventure Ruined by the Awful Camera Work
5 September 2015 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The teenager David Raskin (Jonny Weston) is a genius that dreams on joining the MIT. He has a crush on Jessie Pierce (Sofia Black-D'Elia) but he is too shy to date her. When David finds the design of a time machine that belonged to his father, he decides to build the device together with his friends Quinn Goldberg (Sam Lerner) and Adam Le (Allen Evangelista) and his sister Christina Raskin (Virginia Gardner). Soon Jessie joins the group and becomes David's girlfriend. When their experiment gets out of control and changing the future, David decides to fix the problems making them worse.

"Project Almanac" is a sort of "The Butterfly Effect 4", with a similar storyline with many paradoxes. Each time that the teenagers interfere with the past for personal profit, the future changes and the responsible David tries to fix it. Unfortunately the funny adventure is ruined by the awful camera work. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Projeto Almanaque" ("Project Almanac")
