This is a considered a comedy classic!?


I'm sorry, but why? This movie was tasteless and awful! It really reeks of "toxic masculinity". No way in hell would a movie like this, be made today! The death threats, boycotts, and cancel culture would be off the charts!

Want a good comedy classic from the 2000s? Watch Step Brothers, The Hangover, Talladega Nights, Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle. Anything but this godawful film! Even Joe Dirt and Napoleon Dynamite were both way, way, way better than this garbage!

Want to watch a better version of this film; watch Bad News Bears, instead! The original 1976 or 2005 version, I don't care.

ITS AN ALRIGHT GOOFBALL COMEDY....WHO TOLD YOU IT WAS A COMEDY CLASSIC?

It's bad and why people call The Butterfly Effect a bad movie is fucking beyond me! Yes, I understand that's a sci-fi thriller and this is a dark comedy, but that is a more memorable film from the 2000s than this crap!

BENCHWARMERS 4/10...BUTTERFLY EFFECT 7/10

My thoughts exactly! Still better than crap like Epic Movie, Disaster Movie, and Jack & Jill but still a rather poor comedy. The toxic masculinity and the bullying really ruins it and it's not funny at all. I did hear from my best friend that all the bullies get their comeuppances and reform, so that's great. I just hate how bullying is portrayed worse with males, than with females; despite what others may think, otherwise (hence the term "toxic masculinity") and why it's almost a thing of the past in today's PC society where everyone is called out for their sins and crimes.
