I really enjoyed this movie even though Ashton Kutcher is a tool but he was quite good in this movie

The Butterfly Effect tries to get you believing that memories can be altered if you simply try hard enough. I think it's a great movie.

I personally like the Director's cut so much better and this is why.
In the director's cut where Ashton eventually strangles himself by
the umbilical cord the mother makes a statement like "Oh not again" and turns out that she had miscarriages before that. This leads the viewer to believe that all the children inherited this same "ability" and they all inevitably made the same decision in the end. I believe that the reason they picked the sappy "Hollywood" ending is because a movie is meant to be an escape from everyday life and a viewer doesn't want to see a person trying so hard to reach a goal only in the end to find out they failed. They want to believe that if a person tries hard enough they can accomplish anything. What is contradictory about this is that those movies that choose to get away from the "Hollywood" ending, and conclude the movie with a tragedy or a sad ending are the one's that are rated the highest by the critics.

There are actually about 6 endings, 5 of which are like the "passing each other on the street" ending (theatrical ending). You can see all of them on youtube. But let me add that I consider the unique ending (the self-induced miscarriage) is the best one. He realized that he screwed up the lives of so many people that he loves, and he would rather not even live so that they could be happy. Reminds me (a little) of the movie "Seven Pounds"
