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.

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.

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.

Chaos Theory was an interesting movie. A drama the likes of which is out of character for Ryan Reynolds, yet he's able to pull the role off quite convincingly. The film really elaborates on the hypocrisies of life and relationships with a comical solution on Reynolds' part. A shallow movie with only decent acting by the supporting cast that allows it to maintain a roughly true to life quality. While I enjoyed watching it, I definitely do not believe seven years after it's release that it's worth $20 dollars. I purchased it for $11.73 and still feel the price was high even with the inclusion of a double sided disk (Side A Widescreen/Side B Fullscreen). Wait for it to go on sale, then enjoy one mans irreverent answer to the question... What would you do if?...

I like Ryan Reynolds and all, but this movie just is not entertaining, and the story line isn't all that great either. If you need to be entertained, this won't cut it. There are more interesting things out there.

A well-done movie that captures the spectrum of human emotion at its worst...and best! You'll walk away from this film feeling a little more love for others...but more importantly forgiveness and compassion for you.

Who doesn't love this guy! It's a funny film but not hilarious... they don't make hilarious films anymore.... I think they are fearful of someone laughing so hard they might claim they blacked out and sue them. What a crazy, crazy, crazy world we've become. I just hope God isn't watching.
