Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel Review: Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel is about three mates talking about time travel in a pub. They ended up doing some actual time travelling much to their surprise. Most time travel films do not make sense or have serious plot holes, but this plot is great. The story is creative, clever and well written. It keeps me interested and engaged throughout the film. The three mates are authentic and unpretentious, just like real characters we meet on a daily basis. This enhances the attraction of the film, making it even more engaging.
The character development was great, the beginning was funny and charming. Anna Faris delivers a great performance as she sparks the silver screen with her natural abilities of a comedian and all the other actors such as Chris O’Dowd, Dean Lennox Kelly etc. Both interacts realistically with each other, forming brilliant chemistry.
Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel also achieves the Red Dwarf trick of mixing genuine science fiction with everyday common or garden Brits up to their everyday common or garden lives. These lives are especially common or garden, given that the majority of the action takes place in the local pub.
Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel is for ‘Science Fiction’ lovers as well as people who are generally into space and time travel. There aren’t any really mushy and romantic scenes, a mild sense of swearing, but all for the cynical outcome. Do watch! You might want to re-watch it again and again! Full length films under 85 minutes usually are bad, but “Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel” is a pleasant exception!
