See the original story in the book “Before...12:01...and After” by Richard Allen Lupoff (Author), George Barr (Illustrator) ISBN-13: 978-1878252234
You know the story before it starts. Time loop stories of been presented long before this and many after. However if you missed this one you’ve missed a pretty good presentation with time loop story that doesn’t try to be too cutesy or too heavy.
Slob and sluff off Barry Thomas (Jonathan Silverman) finds himself the victim of time loop technology that is gone awry. At first he finds this quite annoying. Soon he realizes he has a second chance to save the life of the one that he loves from afar, Lisa Fredericks (Helen Slater.)
The film is very short; so will he find time to grow a social consciousness get close of the girl find and fix the problem and so forth? Or is he destined to repeat his slovenly ways over the same day forever and ever and ever?
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.
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.

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.
I liked this movie for it's story. I felt a lot of empathy for the character and there's a lot of great humor in the story and even for a guy the romantic part made my wife like... Read morePublished on Dec 23 2007 by The Hay Team
This film is an absolute undiscovered gem. It is a science fiction/romance/comedy/thriller. As ungainly as this sounds it works remarkably well. Read morePublished on March 19 2007 by TV conoisseur
Oh my god! This movie seriously needed first aid! The acting was... not convincing, to say the least. I suspect the producers smoked the budget. Read morePublished on April 12 2003 by Colby
This film was just OK in my opinion. I strongly urge you to see the original 12:01. first filmed as a short in 1990, starring Kurtwood Smith who is perhaps best known for playing... Read morePublished on June 29 2000 by Jason Cannon
