Premonition (2007)

Directed by: Mennan Yapo
Written by: Bill Kelly
Starring: Sandra Bullock, Julian McMahon, Shyann McClure, Courtney Taylor Burness, Nia Long, Kate Nelligan, Irene Ziegler, Amber Valetta, Marc Macaulay, Peter Stormare, Jude Ciccolella

About a woman who learns that her husband was decapitated in a freak car accident, only to wake up the next morning and find he is alive and walking around. The next day, he's dead again. Apparently, the days of the week are scrambled up or something. Sort of like a backwards version of Groundhog Day only not half as interesting.

And why is this happening? (Spoilers) Turns out it's an elaborate hoax perpetrated by Jim Carrey, who was trying to sabotage the success of this movie so that everyone would go see The Number 23 instead. Fuckin' Jim Carrey.

I know that this is probably the last thing I should be worrying about when it comes to a movie about putting the days of the week in a blender, but this flick had some pretty serious fucking logic problems.

How come nobody seemed to know that the girl ran through a glass window? How did Sandra Bullock escape from the metal hospital? Why did she even bother trying to get away from the exploding thingie when she knew her husband was going to die three days later? How come the fucking coffin wasn't locked? God dammit. This movie was so sloppy.

Dig this (I can't remember the exact line, but it was something along these lines): "Throughout history, there have been hundreds of inexplicable events. Nobody knows why" That about sums it up.

And somehow it has something to do with faith. Fuck. This movie pretty much pissed me off from beginning to end. There was all this shit in there that didn't really have any purpose except to be creepy - creepy sounds, creepy dead crow, girl running into window. As if there wasn't enough going on, they had to add all this other stuff.

And Sandra Bullock looks like a lizard. Just had to mention that. It was really freaking me out. I always kind of liked Sandra Bullock, though. She seems nice. She gives people soap.

But anyway, it probably would have been better to just watch The Lake House again. Stupid though it was, it was superior to this movie (and it had Keanu Reeves in it, which is always a plus. I mean, Julian McMahon is Dr. Doom, who the hell would want to marry him). Oi.
