Only the other night, Ken (Andrew Morra) has picked up Sydney (Lennon Sickels) at a bar and took her home to have drunk sex, but this morning, with them waking up next to one another, things couldn't be more awkward, and not only because she says the sex was lacking, it's also because there's absolutely no chemistry between them, she doesn't find him charming and does find most of his jokes offensive - which is when he tells her he has got a solution to all her problems: A wormhole in his bathroom that might lead her to a better version of the universe. Now of course, she doesn't believe him at all, but since she's also a theoretic physicist minor she has to admit it's theoretically possible. Then he disappears into his bathroom, and when he emerges again, he's not himself anymore but a Ken from another timeline where he and Sydney have been a couple for three years now and who has no idea about wormholes - and after some convincing, Sydney's actually convinced that the other Ken isn't playing a bad prank on her but this Ken is actually another Ken ... when yet another Ken shows up, a Ken that has made wormhole-travelling to his favourite pastime, especially since the concept of good and evil doesn't exist anymore when a timeline breaks up in two every time someone makes a decision, so for example if he decides to kill somebody that would automatically result in a parallel time where he decides against it (in theory at least). So he ponders whether to kill the other Ken, slice him up and feed him to Sydney. Needless to say, this messes up the situation quite a bit, but what really derails it is when another Sydney shows up as well ...


Now given this whole movie is entirely set in one apartment and only features two actors (if in more than one role), one might be tempted to call it a bit over-ambitious for trying to make a comedy about theoretic physics within these constraints - and yet, the film does remarkably well thanks to a pretty ingenious and well-structured script full of sharp and poignant dialogue and an utter refusal to ever go the pretentious route. On top of that, a spirited directorial effort keeps things visually interesting throughout while the actors play it straight and remain relatable and thus add some believability to their at times pretty out there lines. And all of this makes a very entertaining and pretty unusual film.
