“Press Play has a fun set up. Yet it is all a tease.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eDirector Greg Björkman and co-writer James Bachelor could have played loose and fun with the temporal proceedings and made a Millennial Back To The Future. Laurau0026#39;s tampering with past events could have gotten all dark like The Butterfly Effect. Alas, none of that happens. Instead Laura cries about her lost love following every time jaunt and listens to terribly-forgettable pop-music.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe dialogue, and the situations themselves, become annoyingly repetitive, disconnecting all intrigue and struggle from her quest. Even Danny Glover, whose talents are wasted as the storyu0026#39;s wise counselor, has his fortune cookie idioms promptly ignored.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWhat started out as a clever time travel movie quickly devolves into a mopey first love movie with a mopey soundtrack.”
