The Butterfly Effect (2004)

Director: Eric Bress and J. Mackye Gruber
Starring: Ashton Kutcher, Amy Smart, Eric Stoltz
Budget: $13m
Box Office: $100m

Plot: A survivor of childhood abuse suddenly discovers that he can travel back in time with the use of his diary. Exploiting this lucky find to right all the injustices in his past, he learns that small changes to the timeline cause big ripples. He variously ends up as a college student, a prison rape victim and an amputee. People laughed in a kind of awed disbelief, which wasn’t really the intention.

The Butterfly Effect 2 (2006)

Director: John R. Leonetti
Starring: Eric Lively, Erica Durance, Dustin Milligan

Plot: Unrelated to the first one plot-wise, although it deals with the same issues again. It’s not as convoluted or as bogglingly dark though. We have here a protagonist who survives an accident that kills his friends, and goes back in time to try to stop it. The time travelling mechanic this time is photographs instead of diary entries, but it’s more or less the same. There’s a Butterfly Effect 3 too (called, yawn, Revelations), which, again, is the same premise with different characters.

You've obviously never been tortured... not that I have but I can imagine it would be more painful than clicking a button. More

23 Why the clicking?
Why do you think people will click through 40 pages loading? It would be much less annoying to have it as a scrolled list down a few pages. Gave up clicking at 11. Torturous. More
