In Time, the Justin Timberlake vehicle in which time is literally money and everyone stops aging at 25, didn't exactly clean up at the box office this weekend. But those who did see the Bonnie & ClydeHunger Games mash-up will have a lot to say (or at least a lot of groan-inducing time puns to recount). Here's a list of talking points to get you started.

• Sandwiches (Everyone lives on their own farm, and spectacularly obese people run the world, until their health complications lead to a revolution.)
• Insects (The world markets collapse owing to the sudden bee disappearance.)
• Cell-phone minutes (Poor people become monks and achieve enlightenment through their solitude.)
