James Kennedy’s CTRL Z introduces us to best friends Ed and Carrie, as well as Sarah, the object of Ed’s unrequited affections. Can his do-over device (“It’s not a time machine!”) help him win the girl of his dreams—and will Carrie ever forgive him for dragging her along on this weird-science mission?


Set in a greasy spoon over what only appears to be the length of just one evening, CTRL Z is a small-scale time-travel fantasy that might feel a little too talkative if not for its very funny, likable characters. (And fear not, though its premise may sound a bit similar to this Netflix flick, it’s very different in execution.)
