hanov3r was kind enough to support MeFi with a donation. Their request was for six films about time travel. bent back tulips also donated to MeFi and is interested in sci-fi thrillers, so I'm doubling down on this one, which is helpful since there are a lot of good films available. I'll be using the tag #timetravellin

Donate $25 or more to MeFi and you can MeMail me a request for a themed day of your own. I'll fill up the sidebar on FF with six movies that fit your theme.

The pacing is weirdly inert, but most of the jokes are funny.

I know I've watched this more than once, but I only vaguely remember it. I do remember enjoying it, however. I'm surprised at the rating.

Now I feel compelled to watch it again.

I have watched it twice, and enjoyed it. I remember it being pretty funny. I cannot relate many plot points, other than they go into a bathroom to time travel. My memory is basically the two previous comments smooshed together.

It's also on BBC iPlayer in the UK at the moment. I rewatched it a few weeks ago and really liked it - it's not trying to be terribly visually impressive or terribly profound, but the writing's good and it's genuinely funny. I could imagine it working well as a stage play.
