This film contains several great twists and displays a truly talented side of Ryan Reynolds in which I would like to see more of. The soundtrack was excellent, paring the right music at the right moment and pulling you into the character's anguish. The only thing keeping me from giving this film five stars was the beginning of the movie. It didn't hook me until about 25 minutes in, and then I wished it didn't end. The supporting cast was excellent, and Reynolds' character brings an appropriate amount of comic relief mixed with his unraveling.

This movie is definitely a dark comedy -- as some of the other reviews reveal, Ryan Reynold's character has everything go miserably wrong in his life. The irony is that he is an efficiency expert and, prior to this series of events, had an inordinately structured and "perfect" existence. When it shatters apart, he begins doing the some of the risky behavior he once condemned (driving a Harley with no helmet) and smoking. You can feel the tension because his actions go against his personality. Throughout, Reynolds is very convincing in dramatizing the stress and anxiety.

Just watching the film, I could not help but feel very empathetic toward Reynold's character. To me, it isn't really all that "laugh-out-loud" funny. Rather, it is more of a sense of shock that the poor guy has been devastated so badly and deeply.

While I normally don't like this kind of movie, I felt it was strangely compelling and well done for what it is. Just don't watch this for some light-hearted laughs.

My husband and I stumbled onto this movie by happenstance, and we weren't sure what we were in for. This movie is one of our favorites now. I was pleased to find it for a reasonable price online. None of the stores in our area had it in stock. Chaos Theory has a good mix of humor--that isn't all slapstick--and a decent story to follow. All in all, it's a good flick to watch on a date night or with friends, and it's one worth watching again.

Format: DVD
Synopsis: Frank Allen (Ryan Reynolds) thinks he's figured out the perfect system for a happy, organized life. The secret is making lists, the more specific the better. His list making abilities have been so successful he makes a living teaching business seminars the profitability of list making.

Yes things are almost too perfect for the handsome, intelligent and successful husband and Father. That is until Frank's life takes a chaotic turn for the worse and he is faced with events that cannot be solved by writing them down on a piece of paper. There's only one solution, a new paradigm must be adapted if he is to survive what lies ahead; the Chaos Theory.

Critique: You're always off to a good start in any film when you have the likes of Ryan Reynolds in the starring role. Another big plus for the '07 dark comedy romance `Chaos Theory' is the presence of the talented Emily Mortimer as Reynolds wife Susan.

If you're like me you just might be surprised early on in this film that it isn't quite what you expected. If that's the case fight the urge to tune out and stay focused, there's really a lot going on in this film if you give it a chance. The dialogue is sharp and insightful, the message contemporary and Reynolds and Mortimer's performances excellent. Well worth a watch or two.

I pretty much adore this movie. While I haven't always been the biggest Ryan Reynolds fan, movies like Buried, and this one, Chaos Theory, show just how talented of an actor he is.

More of a romantic comedy with drama sprinkled throughout, it provides enough of something for just about everyone. And once the whole thing wraps up, you're left thinking about your own life, and how one little thing, one little action, can completely change the course of your life.

I'm a Ryan Reynolds fan but in this movie his talent shines. He not only displays a wide range of emotions but must also portray various ages. The hair styles and makeup helps to show the different ages but his mannerisms just takes it over the top. The plot summary describes the main character as "an obsessively organized efficiency expert". This sounds like a nerd which is visually supported by the DVD cover where he is wearing horn-rimmed glasses. The movies I've seen him in he is far from that thus causing my need to see the movie! The plot is clever and the supporting actors are excellent as well.

In two words, this film can be described as suprising and compelling.

I ran across this film while browsing Netflix through my PS3. The plot sounded pretty funny, so I took a shot.

First impression - whoa, this is not a comedy - but even though it didn't meet my immediate expectations, Reynold's character was very compelling (me being the same sort of straight-laced OCD personality, I almost immediately developed a strong sympathy for Reynolds).

I've never been a big fan of Reynolds - I always envisioned him the "Van Wilder" type, and never really cared to give any of his films an honest break. But between the likeable character design and Reynold's fantastic portrayal, my heart actually broke for the poor guy during the progression of the plot. I should make a correction - I WASN'T a fan, but his performances was strong enough to convince me to give some of his other projects a go.

The supporting cast is also very solid - no A-listers, but all genuine in their roles. The plot is the most unexpected part of the whole experience. Despite the dark-edginess of the story and the contemporary amorality of the film industry, Chaos Theory is surprisingly moral and grounded in traditional values. There is no edgy perversion, no cynical mockery of straight-laced Frank Allen his normal family, there's no sex on camera, profanity is realistic, and all of the characters, for all of their failings, are just good people who want to do the right thing. All in all, it's a lesson in the sometimes catastrophic consequences to seemingly minor events (the chaos theory), but in the end, you choose how you live with it.
