Synopsis of The Butterfly Effect 2
When a man's girlfriend is killed in a tragic auto accident, his time-traveling attempts to alter her fate have some unexpected effects on the events of the future. Nick and Julia were deeply in love, but when death robs the young couple of their lifetime of happiness, Nick isn't willing to say goodbye to his soulmate without a fight. Soon discovering that he has the ability to travel into the past to a point before the time of Julie's untimely death, Nick struggles to find a means of saving his one true love despite the increasingly troubling results that his well-intended heroics seem to have on the future.

If you like movies about time travel and stuff like that, you will like this movie and the other butterfly effect movies 1 and 3. I thought it was really good.

Erica Durance was my Motivation for this Purchase(actually, i got it
in trade at a Book Store) ; so, 'saved a lot of money.
The Concept of Altering Reality is something i , often, Muse about.
In the end , however, without a Godlike View of The timeline,
how can You Imagine things will go well?
Use Your own microwave for the Popcorn...and see it with a friend , who may own it.
"whatever happened between us, just wipe it out of your head

"I think that's the worst thing I've ever heard. Why would anyone say that. What human being would say that.
I liked part 1, so when I saw there was a sequel, even knowing it had a very low rating, I wanted to give it chance. I love time travel movies, so if this was ANYTHING like the first one, at a minimum I figured I would get a moderate amount of enjoyment out of it.
All I got was a moderate amount of homicidal thoughts after this. I can't believe that professionals can actually create something so bad. Put aside the bland acting and the boring writing for a second, and look at the way the script was structured. The movie was a little less than 90 minutes long, yet nothing even happens for the first 52 minutes, when the movie's more than half over. There was no development of story or characters whatsoever. A complete waste of 52 minutes of screen time.
Whoever wrote this did the equivalent of building a roller coaster that travels from one side of the park to the other without EVER GOING UP, and instead travels across in a completely straight line, and so as you exit off the coaster, you're wondering "wtf was that??" The writer of this story forgot to add the one key element that makes all stories work on some level: some conflict for a protagonist to overcome, obviously. Nothing resembling drama or suspense took place until either the 52 minute mark, or the 61 minute mark. It all depends on whether you would consider his confrontation with his friend in the garage at the 52 minute mark as something significant that builds the story and moves it forward. If not, then there's definitely NOTHING that happens until the 61 minute mark, which is when he realizes that he's no longer in a relationship with his girlfriend. Now that's actually pretty interesting. But why are we JUST NOW getting into the realm of "he has to fix this disastrous timeline he's now in, one without his girlfriend," with only less than a HALF HOUR of the movie left? What were we watching for the past hour? Everything that happened before was completely inconsequential, you might as well start watching this movie from the 52 or 61 minute mark, you won't miss a thing."
I really liked this movie

"The main theme of this movie is "It is our past that brought us to the present". If your life is full of "what if you would had done this", then you would not be in the same place you are now in the present. This is a very simple concept. This movie takes the "gift of ability to change the past to affect the present" scenerio and does it well. The acting of the actors were great and very believable. I don't know why all of the ranting and raving is from the other reviewers, maybe they can't just sit down and enjoy a movie for what it is and accept it for what it is trying to say. I recommend this movie to anyone that likes the concept of "what we do in the past brings us to the present and also affects us in the future"."

"I actually thought the first one was ok. This one was just crap. Was it an after school movie?
Maybe rent it and waste your time but don't buy it unless it is for a relative who you don't like."
