Storyline

Barry Thomas is the average office worker. He becomes attracted to Lisa Fredericks who works in the same company. After work, Barry witnesses the murder of Lisa and goes to a bar to get drunk. Later that night, there is a storm and Barry gets a shock from a lamp's faulty power wire at exactly 12:01 am. The next morning, he realizes that everything is happening exactly as it did the previous day. The next morning the day is repeated again. It is now Barry's job--being the only person alive who is aware of this time loop--to stop the murder of Lisa, and stop the time loop or be caught in time forever.

A cute wonderful little known movie
8 January 2002 | by sanctuary-1See all my reviews

12:01 is one of those movies that no one ever heard of but if they see it will remember it forever. In the same vein as Groundhog Day but with a much more interesting plot, 12:01 is the story of someone caught in a time bounce who must live the same day over and over and each day see the woman he secretly adores killed before his eyes. Silverman plays the part beautifully from answering his Mothers pointed questions to his impatience to finally get it right. Helen Slater is also wonderful as the love interest killed each day.

The movie moves quickly through the days and provides all sorts of interesting little moments as Barry Thomas tries to stop the bounce while saving his girl.

A beautiful story acted out by excellent acting and directing. I strongly urge you to find it in a video store or tape it off late night TV if you have the chance. Once you have seen it you wont forget it.
