Goofs Around 33 minutes into the film when Arthur goes to unplug the Christmas tree he bends down next to a window. Just then a man's head starts to rise from the outside into view of the window.

Awful and pointless sequel to the superior horror suspense cult hit, Donnie Darko is a film that never should have been made. The film has a poorly written script, bad directing and a very poor cast.

Critics Consensus: Richard Kelly's debut feature Donnie Darko is a daring, original vision, packed with jarring ideas and intelligence and featuring a remarkable performance from Jake Gyllenhaal.

Donnie Darko doesn't get along too well with his family, his teachers, and his classmates; but he does manage to find a sympathetic friend in Gretchen, who agrees to date him. L.A.
