My opinion
You're all right man! Not like Teddy! He's a dick juicer!

After an hour I was hoping that at home the lights also began to flicker and my alter ego would appear to turn off this movie. This is an extremely tedious and immensely boring movie. More than an hour watching a probably glitzy rave with thumping bass and teenagers getting drunk. Teen girls that look at themselves as goddesses and thinking they look even more divine than the others. After a while it was a bit too much for me. It looked like "Groundhog Day" except that the time leap led to a double. The story was completely pointless and not at all interesting to follow.
An innocent stupid kiss is the beginning of the whole mess. After that there is some kind of impact. I thought it was a comet or so, but eventually it will be some kind of alien life form ! That's also something that bothered me about this movie. You don't have a freaking idea what's going on or what the cause of the phenomenon is. And in the end I still didn't know it.

Before you know it, all the protagonists are at a house party where you can admire irritant teens just hopping around and stumble over each other. Rhys Wakefield is the sucker that actually just wanders around at that party the whole time, looking for his girlfriend Jill so he can apologize for the mistake he made. And this process takes the whole movie !
In fact, I think he sometimes looks very bleak. First he has that dazed look. Then an obviously winning smile. And after that a crazy angry look. In "The Purge", this worked cause he played a psychologically unstable character. If some nudity is a reason for you to rate this movie, then you will appreciate +1, because Melanie surely is eye-candy. Especially when her double stands next to her also !

The time jumps are approaching more and more reality, but the party goes on. A game of tennis played with a fireball sets a few curtains on fire. No need to worry cause the sprinkler system comes to the rescue. The lighted tennis ball was a nasty bad SE.

The climax is the moment everybody is locked up with his alter ego in a summerhouse. I'm still wondering how that whole gang, first standing in front of the stage, got in that little shed. That was a bit cramming.

Anyway, the gang decides to murder the alter egos. What follows is a bizarre moment of hair-pulling hysterical girls and stabbing would-be assassins. In the end eventually everything turns back to normal and David was able to conquer
Jill again. An awful and ridiculously simple story. This movie is only for teenagers who don't know or appreciate the words quality and sensible.
Eventually I hope I will never experience a time jump that brings me back to where I started watching this movie.

My rating 1/10
