      adam b Definitely wasn't expecting much from this and I was left pleasantly surprised. Sure, it recycles a plot device used in many other better films but it still works in this plots case Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Groundhog Day meets Freaky Friday... Don't bother with this one. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member This is one of those movies I love to watch again and again! Especially after a heart wrenching break up. It's of the same school of thought as Sliding Doors only better! It makes you really think and resets your perspective, great movie, great cast, great story line. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Frances H Touching romance about fate and second chances, with two magical garbage men thrown in. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 10/17/12 Full Review Audience Member On mistakes people are prone to make in romantic relations when you want to love and you think you're in love, but you aren't. The film is a lyrical fantasy about a guy who happens to cheat on his girlfriend. She runs away with another, still, he insists that they are meant for each other. The only thing that eventually helps him find out he's wrong is when miraculously he lives through the same situation in his girlfriend's shoes. Nice, but childish. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member this is so not my kinda movie... reeks of serendipity/sliding doors all over... :p but i like Headey and Cruz... :) Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Globe and Mail Rated: 2/4 Apr 25, 2003 Full Review Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times Twice Upon a Yesterday has the kind of title that promises you'll hate the movie, and in this case the movie doesn't disappoint. Rated: 1.5/4 Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle Rated: 2/5 Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Film Threat Rated: 1/5 Dec 6, 2005 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 2/5 Jul 23, 2005 Full Review Michael Dequina TheMovieReport.com Without a rooting interest in our so-called 'hero,' one admires the invention of the film without necessarily enjoying it.
