Observer (UK)

Through no particular fault of the performers, it is pointless, perfunctory and painfully unfunny.

A good effort, but ultimately one that may have been more suited to a TV special than a fully-fledged feature, FAQ... is like that geeky friend you really want to like - if only they'd sort out their BO problem and stop talking about Deep Space Nine.

An undercooked, rapidly unravelling script, low-grade production values (is that the best future costume you have?), plodding direction and an apologetically crap ending are not worth the price of a cinema ticket in these belt-tightening times.

Overcoming a limited budget with imagination and charismatic characters, it's a minor miracle to see a British movie take on a subject matter monopolised by Hollywood and emerge on level terms.

While it doesn't quite achieve the same standards as its recent forebears in British genre comedy, this modest film has amiable, convoluted charm.

Surprisingly good fun for a low-budget TV movie, but then again British sci-fi usually excels under these conditions.

If SHAUN OF THE DEAD was an British primer in dealing with zombies, then FAQ ABOUT TIME TRAVEL is a British primer in dealing with the conundrums and paradoxes… More

Brilliant on all levels. With a great cast and a fantastic story, Carrivick made a funny and involving film that captures you from the beginning and keeps ahold… More

The idea was quite good but the result was so dissapointing. I love British humour and in fact Chris O'Dowd is hillarious in the IT Crowd. But this is a… More
