Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel

Another one of those films which didn't very well in the Cinema. This time its the bold titled Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel, which also has a respectable IMDB rating of 7.5. The plot is very simple

The film follows three social outcasts; two geeks and a cynic, as they attempt to navigate a time-travel conundrum in the middle of a British pub. Faris plays a girl from the future who sets the adventure in motion.

The plot on this film is solid and smart, they delve into the ideas, theories and paradoxs of time travel. The dialogue is sharp and witty like watching Shaun of the dead, And even better is the use of the location along side the plot. Basiclly the whole thing unfolds and compacts within just the pub, no where else. The only down side is the very start could have been cut or changed. I can also imagine some people would find it hard to follow the time travelling parts as its more Donnie Darko that Back to the Future. There's at least 3 levels of time overlap.They do explain as they go which should make things a lot easier.

If you get the chance to see this movie, grab it you won't be disappointed. It should have been a british hit, I wonder what happened? Check out the trailer below.
