Just finished watching this movie a few hours ago and I must say, I’m quite impressed. It was a LOT better than I thought it was going to be. I mean comon, Ashton Kutcher acting well in a serious drama? Who woulda ever guessed?
Anyway, The Butterfly Effect is about a boy who has backouts as a kid where he can’t remember the usually scary things that happened while he was out. Later, when he’s in college, he discovers that he can start to remember the periods when he had blackouts and actually travel back in time to change what went on then.
However, as chaos theory states (kinda), a small change can result in a much larger change which is the case here. Each time he attempts to fix something that went wrong in his past, his entire life and everyone in it is completely changed.
If you haven’t seen it, this is another movie that you should definetly see.
