FAQ About Time Travel: Geeky Fun

Browsing Netflix for a light Saturday night film, I came across this gem. Chris O’Dowd seems to be making it big lately, especially across the pond. But here was a film where he reminds me more of his character on the IT Crowd – and really seems to get down with his nerdy (sometimes typecast) roots. FAQ About Time Travel  is an enjoyable ride from start to finish. The characters are awkward and endearing and I kept thinking that they were probably how real people would act if found in the ridiculous far fetched situations Hollywood likes to set up. The chemistry between the actors was also excellent, their friendship being tested as expected in such a film – but the comedic quality of such guaranteed the result didn’t come across as stale. And of course the science fiction and physics references are pretty darn fun too. The end of the film gets a little silly, but I was able to suspend belief (massively) and roll with it. I heartily recommend.
