    Ya know I was watching this the other day and tried to figure out exactly how long he was stuck in limbo. Between me and my wife we came up with about 2 years give or take. What do you guys think?

    I agree. Very good flick.

    10 years though. Wow, that's crazy, I would go completely insane, even if it was the best day of my life.

    Love this movie, caught it on showtime earlier this month. I don't think I had seen it in a year or so at least.

    but if you think about it, every day is mostly the same as the day before for a lot if not most people :dunno: of course he was in a pathetic small town but with the whole not being able to kill himself it would make it pretty fun:mamoru:

    I found it tedious to always see him do the same things.

    But the outlandish scenes redeemed the tedium.

    I agree underrated - I didn't find it tedious - I liked the fact that you didn't know what he would come up with next - I'll have to drag it out and watch again now :)

    if you watch the special features on the dvd it says the writer never really elaborates on the amount of time, but it was supposed to be something close to about 1000 years.

    10 years?!?!?! Wow.
    I guess he doesn't physically age then either? I never thought about that because I didn't think it could have possibly been that long.
    And yes this movie is awesome.

    If he is reliving the same date over and over, then he is the same age each time he wakes up. So no aging.

    I figured a couple of years tops. I think I'd hate fuck every on in town if I had to be there for 10.
