This should have been one of the first films to debut on the iPhone. The movie’s premise – its only intriguing aspect, which has been taken from a 2003 Japanese film – is that a number of college students begin receiving voicemail messages from themselves at the time of their future deaths. Steve Jobs could have offered specter screening as an iPhone feature. Once One Missed Call establishes its pattern, the movie grimly and predictably sticks to it: phone call, death, funeral; phone call, death, funeral. It’s shameful how even when Hollywood looks in novel places for material, the studios manage to make that material mind-numbingly routine.
