Chaos Theory Review


Good
When you take a film class, the first thing you're told is that if you can't capture the attention of your audience in the first five minutes, you will lose them for the duration of the narrative. For the most part, in practice, this is actually true. Think about the number of times you've waited for a film to get better and it simply hasn't, then you walk out of the theater lamenting the loss of those two hours of life.

In sharp contrast to this rule, Chaos Theory's first ten minutes are painful, followed by a moving journey that follows one couples' path to forgiveness after the realization of infidelity. The last few minutes mirror the beginning in their annoyingly simplistic banality, but the middle hour of the film is completely engaging.

And get this: The four guys agree to share parenting duties (nah, she won't bother to find out who the father is). The story is completely asinine and baffling (the qualifying race for an annual regatta occurs nine months before the race?), but what's really special is just how insulting Kimberly is, no matter how progressive your mindset might be. Atrocious.
