This series, about time loop movies, is one I sponsored myself. I'll be using the tag #DejaVuDay It will be a double-sized batch.

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.

Notice the two writers... talented folks worked on this, even if it's a bit millennial/melodrama.

Zoey Deutch is strong in this one, although she brings too much of sweetness to Sam early on to make the whole time-loop progression from bad person to good person really work. I liked Sam from the get-go.

It also is highly, highly YA.

Still, I liked this well enough, and it's good if you go into it knowing what to expect.
