The whole time- machine destruction was kind of pointless.

I enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would .

Light and entertaining teens' movie with deep wisdom.

Once he succeeds the film takes quite an unexpected sinister and possibly unintentional turn.

A time travel film more entertaining for a younger audience.

Indeed, the underdeveloped relationship of Stillman's sidekick Evan and his relationship with "Blue Ribbons" was far more intriguing.

The other-half is going nowhere, when the guy get hookup with the machine and keep going back to fix problems.

I enjoyed it.

Enjoyable 90 minutes.

But in the other hand, I felt that this movie was ENJOYABLE and kinda CUTE to be honest.

I think the shortage of using some scientific theories made the movie a little confusing.

The whole complexity of changing the past and unexpected changes in the present seemed to be restricted just to his little world.

Skyler Gisondo knows how to create entertaining scenes with the comic commentary of his character on the actions of the main character.

It turns out that the original, brief film was more interesting and engaging than the longer version, validating the time-honored adage in writing that "less is more.

This is a heartfelt coming of age film.

A boring awkward mess....
