Format: DVD
Sandra Bullock has the keen sensitivity to pick up some roles that she thinks she can create a niche and leave a mark of her acting skills. That is what interests me to see her movies. In "Premonition" - a time-tripping attempt to do for marital malaise what "Groundhog Day" did for commitment-phobia - a bored housewife named Linda (Sandra Bullock) wakes up one day, like any other day, and goes about her daily routine. She makes breakfast, takes the kids to school, jogs, does laundry - the usual. The day then takes a tragic turn when Linda learns, from an all too cryptic policeman, that her husband (Julian McMahon from "Nip/Tuck") has been killed in a car accident. Understandably, Linda takes the rest of the day to grieve and console her two daughters before passing out on the couch. The next day she wakes up in her bed...next to her husband - who is, it turns out, quite alive. Was it all a dream? Eventually (and it takes her a while to figure it out) it becomes clear that Linda is living the days of one week in random order. And, at some point, her husband is going to die. It's an intriguing concept for a film with something to say, or a character with the smarts to use this phenomenon to her advantage. "Premonition" has neither.

In the film's early moments, director Mennan Yapo - who made 2004's appropriately atmospheric "Soundless" - does an admirable job of keeping the audience off balance - at times quite literally; his frequent swaying handheld shots produce a vertiginous effect. But as the film progresses and the audience struggles to keep track of the days, even fancy camera moves don't help. I could see what relative-newcomer Bill Kelly was trying to do with his script: he meant to say something about treasuring each day because the end could come at anytime.

Format: DVD
Linda Hanson (Sandra Bullock) has become unstuck in time. Actually the time frame is one week in which the days have been shuffled. She wakes up and it is Thursday, but the next day it is the previous Monday, and the day after that it is the following Saturday. This is all confusing and quite maddening to Linda, especially since Thursday is the day the sheriff rings the doorbell and tells her that her husband had been killed in a car accident the day before. That means when she wakes up on Monday Jim (Julian McMahon) is still alive, but on Saturday they are burying him. Family and friends are starting to think that Linda is having mental problems, and she is having problems wrapping her mind around what is going on herself. But if she knows what is going to happen, then she can do something about it, right?

This is one of Bullock's better performances as she takes advantage of the opportunity to do something different, but despite her best efforts this film lives and dies by the script by Bill Kelly ("Blast from the Past"). The basic idea is pretty intriguing: Linda is living the days of this week out of sequence, which gives her the opportunity to do something about Jim's death. The script even takes a nice twist when Linda starts thinking that maybe she should not do anything and just let it happen. However, Kelly's script suffers from two fatal flaws, the first having to deal with Linda's ability to change things and the second with the way this twisted time travel tale plays out.

If you have not seen "Premonition" then you should look away at this point because THERE BE SPOILERS HERE and I am going to rant and rave about these reasons why I deducted two stars off of this 2007 film's rating.

Shades of Groundhog Day or some more sophisticated what if time travel.

I was surprised at how tight the story is and every minute, every word, and every movement had a part in this story. They actors were well chosen as from the beginning to end you believe their characters are real and that you are taking part in the story.

House wife Linda Hanson (Sandra Bullock) finds out that her husband (Julian McMahon) has died. And wake up the next day to find him there. This is only the beginning. Soon she realized that it is probably a premonition. The story is also filled out with what could have been and what may have been. And what should have been. Sandra puts us all in a different Zeite.

Housewife Linda Hanson (Sandra Bullock) is married to Jim (Julian McMahon), has 2 daughters (Shyann McClure and Courtney Taylor Burness), and her best friend Annie (Nia Long). Linda, one day, wakes up and gets the news that Jim is dead. She wakes up the next morning to find him alive.
She decides to investigate what is happening, to try and prevent her husband's death.

Not exactly fast-paced, and certainly not the greatest thriller/suspense movie, this isn't Bullock's best either! It is however refreshing to see McMahon in a movie rather than his usual Nip/Tuck series. The kids are not well cast - neither of them look like Sandra or Julian.

The ending IS a disappointment. Since this is a thriller/suspense, you would think the scriptwriter would have come up with some not-obvious ending. However, he did. So halfway through the movie, what you expect to happen does happen, and that is utterly annoying.
And that very last scene? How stupid could that be. Useless. One of the worst useless scenes I've seen - sooo American.

Nothing original, or new in this movie.

Still entertaining, despite its plot holes. But I wouldn't watch it again.
