- I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...

The Butterfly Effect - starring Ashton Kutchner
"It has been said that something as small as the flutter of a butterfly's wing can ultimately cause a typhoon halfway around the world - Chaos Theory"
And so begins The Butterfly Effect.
As a young boy, Evan begins to black out and is unable to recall events that have just occurred. His mother takes him to see a psychiatrist who suggests that Evan begin a journal and write things down as they occur to get an idea of how much he is blacking out. As a college student, Evan struggles with not knowing what happened during these blackouts and begins searching for answers. In his search, he learns a way to travel back in time to change the events that have shaped his life and the life of those around him. However, he soon learns that changing these events come with dire consequences.
Despite not-so-favorable reviews of this movie, I found this movie to actually be quite good. However it was somewhat emotionally difficult to watch. Ashton Kutchner does a good job at stepping out of his usual Kelso-ness for this role. Overall, I would say it was worth watching.
Conclusion: If you are a fan of paranormal, mind-spinning movies, then this movie is for you. It may be emotionally upsetting for some people (in particular, bereaved parents), and I would not recommend it for the under-18 audience.
