Great quotes about The Butterfly Effect

— Posted by Rodney

I came across some choice review quote about The Butterfly Effect. Thought I’d share them:

“If I could go back in time and change things, like they do in “Butterfly Effect,” I sure wouldn’t sit through the movie the first time.”
— Boo Allen, DENTON RECORD CHRONICLE (TX)

“What if on my way to the screening, something had intervened — a runaway bus, a lightning bolt — to prevent me from ever seeing this movie. How would my life have changed? Would I have become a happier, a kinder, a less bitter and disappointed man?”
— Rick Groen, GLOBE AND MAIL

“Ashton Kutcher wants to be taken seriously so badly it hurts. So does this metaphysical mess of a movie…”
— Sean Axmaker, SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER

    WRNING SPOILER IN 3rd paragraph.

    When i watched this movie…it made me kind of emotionally unstable. I haven’t cried after a movie for 13 years and this one did the trick, especially the part were he puts the paper saying ILL COME BACK FOR YOU on the grave. The directors cut ending was really emotional too. The whole movie is really about sacrifice.

    I don’t know half of the mumbo jumbo going on with the critics, Ashton, and everyone, but watching this movie really made me think. I am in HS, and i hate to admit it but i am a complete dork. I have read my calculator manual, and i enjoy math. I HATE SCIENCE. I SUCK AT IT AND ALWAYS WILL. But the one thing that has always caught my eye in science was the chaos theory AKA butterfly effect.

    I really enjoyed the movie and thought it had a strong emotional and scientific idea to it. I thought the strangeness of it all, like when lenny killed tommy, displayed the difference some things can make. Technically *coucgh cough i have been doing reasearch on the butterfly effect* that was very true the emphisis on how the theory works. Think about it: butterfly flutters it’s wings—-typhoon. Evan gives lenny metal to cut dog free—-dog is already freed by tommy due to what evan said and lenny kills tommy.

    OH AND I COMPLETELY AGREE WITH YOU ABBY JHON PATRICK AMEDORI IS THE FINEST GUY EVER! and just my age too *wink wink, XD*

    I <3 this movie so much. It’s definitely a favourite of mine. I dont believe it could be considered anything, other than a work of art. Each role was played to a T, and Ashton Kutcher is so purdy. I could watch this movie over and over :)

    hahah, the best critic is the audience, wtf is a “critic”, oh hi, im a movie critic, get the hell outta here dude. how come some person that never made a movie has sufficient moral authority to object someone else’s movie? it’s just hilarious.

    By the way, the movie was great, i even had some of those thoughts when i was a kid.
