Balloon Boy and the 12 Monkeys
Was watching a re-run of "12 Monkeys". I am really fascinated by the concept of time travel. I found this site that attempts to scientifically explain time-travel and also points out all the bloopers in time travel movies. A lot of it went over my head and I will have to re-visit to understand properly!
Anyway - in "12 Monkeys" the whole world watches agog at rescue attempts of a boy supposedly trapped in a well - only it turns out the boy was hiding in a barn and it was a prank all along...sound familiar?
Although the entire movie is a fantasy after all the part I found very hard to suspend reality was where they showed animals could survive in the city streets for years!
