SlidePocket posted a topic in Bad Movie RecommendationsIs anybody familiar with the movie Timeline (2003), which was based on the novel by Michael Crichton and was directed by Richard Donner? Not only was this a critical (12% on Rotten Tomatoes) and a box office disaster ($43 million worldwide on a budget of $80 million), it was also the last book of Crichton's that was made to the big screen before his death in 2008. It also has a surprisingly large cast from the likes of Paul Walker, Gerard Butler, Frances O'Connor, Billy Connolly, David Thewlis, Ethan Embry, Anna Friel and Michael Sheen! It's amazing that Butler's career managed to survive before he made 300 a few years later and not even some decent actors can save this from becoming a cheesefest. Here's the trailer if you want to view it.
