    It's not that surprising that this marked the beginning of the end of Pauly Shore's mainstream film career, as it was immediately shut later by "Bio-Dome" the very next year.

    This is what Cuba Gooding Jr. has done post Oscar win to go from "Jerry Maguire" to this in just six years?!

    It saddens me that "Timeline" has to be the last Michael Crichton-adapted bestseller brought to film to date before the author's death in 2008, and the penultimate movie that Richard Donner directed.

    The sets in 1357 Castlegard look pretty good, and considering there is very little CGI that they used based upon its $80 million budget, that's quite realistic. However, those weren't enough to overcome the huge problems like other later Crichton movies (Congo, The Lost World, Sphere, The 13th Warrior) before that and despite a huge talented cast, neither of them come close to redeeming on what they brought to the table.

    ★★★

    Witness Nicolas Cage in his first straight-out bonkers performance as he recites the alphabet, constantly harasses and later rapes Maria Conchita Alonso, eats a cockroach, eats a pigeon and much more in this off-the-wall horror comedy from the writer of After Hours!
