  • Summary: If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound? If nobody acknowledges our existence - how do we know we exist? Our existence is acknowledged in two different places, two different times at once, leading to the question, is it possible to live a parallel existence? (Piandaryan Films, LLC) Expand

    The film's theory, that maybe we're all living two parallel lives -- if we even exist at all -- is intriguing, but it's rarely taken beyond the notion that Danny's just dreaming it. The result is, to be charitable, underwhelming, narratively and visually.

    Writer-director Jack Piandaryan appears as tone-deaf to his miscalculated dialogue as he is unable to eke out convincing perfs from his cast.

    An amateurish mashup of "The Butterfly Effect" and "The Family Man" (talk about unholy hybrids!) that strains patience from the get-go.
