QUICK TAKE:
Dramedy: A teen finds his perpetually repeating day interrupted by another teen who's also stuck in the same time loop.
PLOT:

Mark (KYLE ALLEN) is a 17-year-old high school student who seems to know everything his sister, Emma (CLEO FRASER), and their dad, Daniel (JOSH HAMILTON), are going to do and say, which also holds true for everyone and everything else in his town. And that's because he's somehow been trapped in a time loop where the same day keeps repeating over and over again. He tries explaining that to his best friend, Henry (JERMAINE HARRIS), but must do so every day as everything ends up reset at midnight.

But then one day fellow teen Margaret (KATHRYN NEWTON) shows up in Mark's loop. She's initially aloof but then confides that like him she's stuck in that loop. They strike up a common-experience friendship and decide to make note of the tiny perfect things that happen in that same day that they had previously overlooked. Mark -- who'd like to figure out a way out of the loop -- finds himself falling for Margaret, but she only wants to remain friends, and is in no hurry for the loop to be broken. As Mark tries to figure out why, their relationship evolves as they keep repeating the same twenty-four hours over and over again.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
The "Groundhog Day" type plot along with the teen romance angle might be enticing to teens.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For brief strong language, some teen drinking, and sexual references.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
