5.0 out of 5 stars A Clever, Funny and Tender Story. May 10 2003
Format:VHS Tape
I am a fan of Science Fiction and I disagree with all the negative comments below. This story was never meant to be as heavy as 2001 or even Ground Hog Day. The actors are not preforming Shakespeare. They do a very good job in this light drama, perhaps more a kin to a tv movie. Helen Slater gives a very subtle and nuanced portrayal of a woman who is deeply lonely and yet still open to a man who sincerely cares about her. The story focuses on the characters and their interaction and does not spend an inordinate amount of time on explaining the cause of the time displacement. This is one of the best science fiction movies I have ever seen because it is honest, simple, and done with care. I doesn't bother me that it obviously had a low budget. Besides, the whole thing essentially takes place on one floor of an office building.

5.0 out of 5 stars I want this on DVD July 27 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Conceptually similar to "Groundhog Day", this made-for-cable movie goes that film one better. In Groundhog Day, Bill Murray's character lived the same day over and over, and learned lessons in life in the process. In 12:01 the hero witnesses a murder. Once he realizes that he is living the same day over and over, he spends each recurring day trying to prevent the murder. I found this film thoroughly entertaining. I hope that it will become available on DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant sci-fi that makes you think. Dec 25 1999
Format:VHS Tape
This movie will have you thinking long after it's over. Before Dark City and The Matrix came along, this innovative film put you in the shoes of someone who's whole context challenges him to alter reality, fall in love, and change who he has been being in his life to accomplish it. In the proces, he learns more about what is going on in the world around him then he ever would have.
The main premise is what if a day were to repeat itself and you were the only one outside the loop who knew it. All the other people would forget everything when the day ended. Telling you this doesn't ruin anything because the movie keep the pace quick and throws in a lot of variables for our hero to overcome while always keeping it interesting. This film also features a wonderful comic turn by Jeremy Piven before he starred as cupid in the failed television series Cupid.
This film works on many levels one of which is a possible metaphor for all those people who fortell the future that we sometimes treat with total skepticism. What if they are the ones reliving an experience that all of us collectively forgot. I am not surprised that the fellow reviewer saw it so many times. Like The Matrix it is a movie that rewards with several viewings.

4.0 out of 5 stars entertaining June 30 2000
Format:VHS Tape
The movie is an interesting contrast to Groundhog Day. The plot is roughly the same, with the same day repeating and only one man aware that it is happening. One difference in 12:01 is that the story attempts to explain the time loop with some dubious sci-fi mumbo-jumbo that would have been better left out. If you've seen any of the new Star Trek spinoffs shows, you know the kind of mumbo-jumbo I'm talking about. Another difference is the protagonist is a young man, which imparts a slightly different spin on the plot than Bill Murray's middle-aged, burnt-out newsman in Groundhog Day. In particular the younger character is more motivated to rectify the problem than Murray's character, since the latter hated his life.
This movie does not work as science fiction. It is much more interesting as a study in character, seeing how an ordinary young adult would respond to this unique crisis in his life. As such, it is interesting, but Groundhog Day gave the theme a better treatment.
If you liked 12:01 and Groundhog Day, I strongly recommend the novel Replay by Ken Grimwood. Same theme, except the main character repeats his LIFE. In Replay, the time-loop idea is fleshed out in a way that could never be done in a movie. Like Groundhog Day, Replay doesn't try to explain the loop, which allows you to concentrate on the characters. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good movie June 7 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Much better than "Groundhog day". It took me quite some time to find it after I saw it many years ago, because I forgot how it was called, and all searches based on "day repeating" or similar brought up "Groundhog day", but like I said, that movie was pretty shallow. This is much deeper and funnier.

Similar to Groundhog day, same day repeating over and over. Always love time-related movies.
Had seen long time ago. Very happy to find it.
