  1. "Quantum Bull-Bleep" would be a more apt title for the conclusions that the movie draws, but one concept was a revelation to me. One of the scientists said it's a fact that a single object can be in two places at the same time. I guess that explains O.J.'s alibi.

    Why would anyone who wanted his or her film to be taken seriously saddle it with a cutesy title like this?
  3. 30
    Darts around maniacally before congealing around a touchy-feely message of personal empowerment whose secular humanism and moral relativism is bound to strike fundamentalists of all stripes as downright Satanic.
  4. On the whole, it feels like a cross between a PBS special hosted by a series of low-rent Deepak Chopras and an infomercial for self-help audio tapes.
  5. 25
    Emits a fishy odor, like a recruitment film for an obscure cult you'd rather stay away from.
  6. The biggest puzzlement about "What'' is what it's doing in major movie theaters around the country when it so clearly belongs on one of those small cable channels given to peculiar programming.
  7. 25
    A terribly self-satisfied lecture about the ubiquity of quantum physics in spiritual life, is dishonest enough to suggest that even its cavalcade of scientists and mystics might not know anything about such topics as reality and the sub-atomic world.
  8. 0
    Nearly two hours of New Age hooey.
  9. The film treats its audience like fidgety junior-high schoolers, piling on the sub-Koyaanisqatsi cityscapes and cheesy episodes with Marlee Matlin as a lonely photographer, plus bouncy cartoons of human cells who look as if they'd be happier chasing stains in bathroom-cleanser commercials.

    Aimed at people who were confused by middle school. Looks like short clips from all sorts of NOVA programs put into a paper bag and shaken (no context!) up spliced with clips of psychic babbling. It's like being stuck at a bus stop having to endure the conversation among stupid people wanting to shout "You stupid #@%*'s!" but too polite to do so. Full Review »

    One of the most laughable films ever made. It represents ridiculous claims as scientific fact without any sort of credibility. When JZ Knight "channeled" an alien warrior to help explain quantum physics, I knew that this movie was full of BS. Avoid at all costs. Full Review »

    People are so bleeping dumb. It makes me wonder how many of the "red-numbered" reviews down below are from close-minded religious fanatics or dull witted white-trash. Full Review »
