Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel DVD review
Well done Jamie Mathieson. Because in Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel , the debut feature-length script-writer lays out a solid framework on which is hung an enjoyable, if occasionally rough-ended 'ladventure' doing well on a screen the film is just about worthy of. That's a compliment more than anything though, because Mathieson's scribbles are acted and directed by a group far more used to the demands of the box in the front-room than of filling the aisles with popcorn critics. Meanwhile, time travelling 'bloke's babe' Cassie Anna Faris holds enough grace and integrity in her role as the time travelling lust-after to provide an occasional, but refreshing aside to the semi-humourous goings on. The events themselves start with a retreat to the local boozer with Ray, the 'acceptable face of geekdom' and best mates Toby and Pete joining to simultaneously provide their musings on life and the occasional round of drinks. If this sounds like a standard night in the pub to any of you reading this, then that's because it is, until Err, not quite, mainly because none of it is hilarious nor particularly adventurous, but actually that doesn't much devalue the experience.
When Ray goes to get a round in, he's stopped by Anna Farris' Cassie, who tells him that she's from the future and is there to repair a time leak. Ray, unconvinced, returns to Pete and Toby and congratulates them on their wind up. It's not until Pete time travels after a trip to the gents that it transpires that it wasn't a wind-up at all and the lads embark on a number of time jumps. The combination of the budget and the performances from those involved contribute towards this. Given the fact that this is an early, if not first, foray into movies for many of those involved, it's perhaps not a huge surprise that this is the case. It's writer Jamie Mathieson's debut screenplay and the majority of the cast are better known for their TV performances.
This is the quandary that the three heroes of this hugely enjoyable Britcom find themselves in. The Simon Pegg-ian concept, of something extraordinary happening somewhere very ordinary, was explored in Shaun Of The Dead and endlessly in Spaced , and even though FAQ leans heavily on that idea its sincerity is never in doubt. When sci-fi-obsessed nerd Ray O'Dowd meets Cassie Farris one evening he's baffled by her claims of being a time traveller. He thinks it's all an elaborate prank and blames his pub mates Toby Wootton and Pete Kelly for the stitch-up. Later in the evening, a drunken Pete discovers a time leak in the gents' toilets while crooning 'Total Eclipse Of The Heart' and gets a terrifying glimpse into the future. Returning back to Ray and Toby, Pete attempts to convince his pals that they have to find a way to save everyone in the pub from a gruesome death.
