John resides in his family's modest house in Queens; alone now after his live-in girlfriend has moved out. As his father's life was full of light and optimism for a bright future, John's is nothing but dark and despaired by the past. He is haunted by the loss of his dad at such an early age, still saddened by the dust-collecting memories of his father - family scrapbooks, old uniforms, Frank's ham radio. For John, this night in October will probably end like most other nights. He will pass out from the whiskeys. But then something different happens, something strange. There is a burst of static from the other room, the study, followed by a voice over the ham radio.
John staggers in to investigate, sits at the desk and, through his stupor, reaches for the microphone. The voice on the other end of the transmission is a man from Queens, a baseball fan talking about the Amazin' Mets. Then more static and the signal is lost.

 The People's Review of Frequency

score = 100
Best movie I've ever seen, it made me realize how important life is, & never to wish that you are any older than you are, time goes by to fast. The Actors were GREAT!!!!!1

score = 90
Excellent movie! I hate being able to guess what's going to happen next in a movie. With this one, that didn't happen.  Must see! I'm buying a copy so I can watch again. LOVE Dennis Quaid-- don't understand why we don't see him more often!


score = 100
Oh, what a fun movie.  I couldn't sit still, it's almost nonstop suspense!  Remarkably clean language-wise, and the violence was mostly good old-fashioned, John Wayne-style fist-fighting.  You'd have to be a blonde or an elitest to not plain out enjoy this one.

score = 100
It had just enough make beleive in it to make it one of the very best movies I have ever seen.

score = 90 
This movie, despite flaws in the plot which of course will exist in any movie such as this, was excellent and definitely one of the three best I've seen all year!

This movie was interesting from beginning to end.  An interesting idea for a movie which the writers obviously considered seriously.  Is the concept real, I do not know.  But it was interesting to watch, particularly the surprise ending.

score = 100 
I think it is a VERY good movie. It has a good plot and it doesn't leave you puzzled. It also has very good acting.

score = None 
I was totally confused by this movie.  I know I should have liked it but could not understand it with the flash backs and reality.  I guess it was the past that caught up with the future.  I was disapointed.

score = 90 
I really liked this movie! It had the science fiction, drama, edge-of-your seat action, and even a little comedy and romance thrown in every once in a while. It was a great movie w/o having to add the usual "Hollywood gaudiness" that most movies of today have. Dennis Quaid also did a great job of portraying a loveable character.

score = 100 
Most suspensful movie I have ever seen.  Forget having me on the edge of my seat, Frequency through me out of it.
