Lockhart's acting was actually not as bad as most of the rest of the cast. That's about the only positive thing I can say about this movie, and once you've seen just how bad the others were you'll realise it's not that positive. The story had potential, in a Strange Case of Benjamin Button sort of way, but completely fell apart with no satisfying conclusion. The idea of having an opportunity to meet your teenage self and change the course of your life is fascinating. Imagine how you'd react emotionally on either side of that situation. Well none of what you imagined can possibility relate to what actually happened because none of the characters in this movie ever act like real human beings.
Each situation seemed to descend into an unrealistic farce, and the characters were so unrealistic that I was left unable to empathise with any of them. I really didn't care what they did to each other, even to the point that when the main character's teenage self confronts his abusive father I started drifting off and thinking about the next movie I was going to watch.
