Back to the Future or rather Freaky Cellar
12 June 2016 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Time travel comedies are not that easy to make. This does mention one of the most successful and entertaining one, that interestingly enough also is from France: The Visitors with Jean Reno. It became a series of movies, something that will not happen with this one. It's not that it is a bad movie, it's just not a really good one either.

The premise is pretty simple, the characters get introduced and it's a bit fish out of water. Except it's very predictable and you might have a hard time feeling sympathy for the characters. Maybe you won't at all, maybe just for a few scenes, where they really don't handle their situation well. Supposedly grown-ups but with major issues. There is material here, but it does get a bit buried. Still it's decent enough to entertain to a degree
