(2019) (Jessica Rothe, Israel Broussard) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Horror-Comedy: A college coed continues to relive the day she dies over and over again, only this time the day is repeating in a dimension where her late mother is still alive.
- Ryan (PHI VU) wakes up in his car and heads on over to his college dorm room to find his roommate Carter (ISRAEL BROUSSARD) making out with his new girlfriend, Tree (JESSICA ROTHE) and still not allowed to come in. So, he heads to the campus science lab where he and his friends, Samar (SURAJ SHARMA) and Dre (SARAH YARKIN), are still trying to figure out a contraption the three have built that has caused random campus blackouts. Soon after Dean Bronson (STEVE ZISSIS) shuts it down and confiscates it, Ryan is stalked through the Science Building by a mask-wearing psycho and killed.
He then wakes up back in his car and is shocked to discover that the day has somehow re-set. He heads to the dorm room and instead of not disturbing Carter and Tree, he tells them about the trippy case of long déjà vu he's having. To his surprise, Tree knows exactly what he is talking about because she had just survived a cycle of 11 "death days" that she had lived over and over again that she broke only by killing her killer, her demented roommate Lori (RUBY MODINE).
Tree soon deduces that Ryan is now stuck in a time loop because of the science experiment he and his friends are doing in which they've tried to "slow down time." When the experiment fires again, Tree is thrown back to her original "death day" and is distraught. But she soon learns that all is not as it once seemed. This time, Lori is mentally stable; Lori is the one having an affair with Professor Butler (CHARLES AITKEN) and not Tree; Tree's college roommate, Danielle (RACHEL MATHEWS), is now dating Carter; and Tree's long-dead mother (actress' name not currently listed on IMBD) is miraculously alive.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- Fans of the first film probably will, while other teens may be attracted to its young cast, its mix of scares and laughs, and its PG-13 rating.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
- For violence, language, sexual material, and thematic elements.
