The Butterfly Effect
Starring Ashton "I Punk'd myself" Kutcher & Amy "sorry I set your eyes on fire with my hotness" Smart

Ok, I really wanted to like this mess of a movie, so I did! Ashton is better in my favorite movie "Dude, Where's My Car," but he manages to get me to not want to punch him in the head with his performance. This time jumping, reality stretching science fiction drama pushes some serious boundaries, (Eric Stoltz plays a pedophiliac father that will creep you out to the point of making you scrub with bleach.) The movie isn't believable but is a messy good time. Don't look for logic because the filmmakers smoked it before making this movie. Enjoy the ride and don't blame me if you feel cheated by the end. Seriously, it was OK.
