Funny and silly time-travel comedy
21 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

Having previously seen ham sandwich as a character in Dave Green's short film Meltdown, I was interested to see if this was a sequel or prequel which continues his adventures. Unfortunately there is no direction connection to that character (I can wait Hollywood, I can wait) but instead this is a story where a man buys a ham sandwich which jumps him back in time every time he takes a bite. This allows him to essentially live in the moment safe in the knowledge that no matter what he does, he can take a bite and jump back to before he ever did it – thus having his sandwich and eating it, so to speak.

As a core concept this is a silly one but it is one that works. As Baxter jumps back in small time jumps the film does have a bit of a montage feel and perhaps this is not quite its strongest moments but these are still amusing and generally the whole concept works. The levels of absurdity continue and I found his bullying of a small hunchback child to be very funny, as well as his overall solution of breaking the time continuum and somehow stopping himself from getting the sandwich in the future. It moves quickly and is played for laughs and I found it pretty funny throughout – with a good punch-line at the end.

Hardesty has that chubby everyman look which plays well in these sorts of comedies (just ask Jonah Hill if it worked for him) while smaller roles are funny from Keyes, Ennis and Dempsey. The whole film is cleverly done and enjoyably funny.
