Trivia

Early on in the film, Pete and Toby press Ray for what his ideal profession would be, to which he replies "Time Lord" as a reference to the race of people from Doctor Who. Dean Lennox Kelly, who plays Pete (the time-travel skeptic), had previously portrayed William Shakespeare in the Doctor Who episode Doctor Who: The Shakespeare Code (2007). See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Ray: Time travel. It'll turn your brain into spaghetti if you let it. Best not to think about it. Best just to get on with the job in hand. Which is destroying the enemy before they're even born and have a chance to threaten us. We're expecting any resistance to be light, because the ancestors of our enemies have yet to evolve any thumbs... or indeed spines.

A pleasant surprise!
15 September 2009 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This film is about three mates talking about time travel in a pub. They ended up doing some actual time travelling much to their surprise.

Most time travel films do not make sense or have serious plot holes, but this plot is great. The story is creative, clever and well written. It keeps me interested and engaged throughout the film. The three mates are authentic and unpretentious, just like real characters we meet on a daily basis. This enhances the attraction of the film, making it even more engaging.

Full length films under 80 minutes usually are bad, but "Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel" is a pleasant exception! I really enjoyed watching "Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel", and I would recommend it to my friends without hesitation.
