While there are definitely some problems with the script, I thought this was a pretty good movie! The side story didn't work at all and took away from the time travel story, which was really well done. Duplass and Plaza where both fantastic and provided some very sweet moments. But that fucking ending is what made this movie work for me. Sincerity over cynicism any day.
This was a delightful little comedy with a lot of heart. Duplass and Plaza have great chemistry in this film and they completely bring it to life and make you really think they can travel back in time.
Charming, funny, sweet - the only thing that was a little off about this was the nearly forced sense of "quirkiness" or awkwardness that it really didn't need. The story was outlandishly great, and Duplass played his role so well - a real character with some great moments, not some caricature as you'd expect in this situation. The ending was sweet and only half-expected, too.
Even though I saw every plot point coming, I really dug this movie! Its lean, breezy, and really doesn't cop out. Aubrey Plaza can hold a movie onto her own and I look forward to more from Colin Trevorrow. Fun genre movie shit!
