Goofs

At one point, Tree plots out a way to kill Tombs. She goes to the hospital, pulls a knife on the officer, takes his gun, tells him that Tombs is about to escape and to go get help. She then goes into his room where he escapes, they fight and she shoots and kills him. She's then seen celebrating her birthday. There is no way that she'd be free that night - she would at the very least be charged with the murder of Tombs since there's no witnesses to see that he did in fact free himself. From an outsiders point of view, she took an officers gun, untied Tombs, and then killed him. See more »

Police Officer: Ma'am, are you under the influence of alcohol or any other controlled substance?
Tree Gelbman: No! That is what I'm trying to...
[pause]
Tree Gelbman: Wait. If I am, does that mean that you're going to arrest me and lock me in a jail cell?
Police Officer: That's how it usually works.
Tree Gelbman: I'm drunk!
Police Officer: You are?
Tree Gelbman: Wasted. And I'm high. You know, pills... weed... you name it, man, I'm on it!

I really enjoyed it
4 January 2018 | by olivermahlmannSee all my reviews

As a fan of Groundhog Day, Final Destination and Edge of Tomorrow, I was surprised how much I liked it. It was just well done and it worked on all levels. I watch a lot of movies and hate most of them, but this one worked for me.
