Note, though, that the majority of movies take place within a relatively short time span, most top out around a few weeks. The trope is about unusually tightened time spans. For movies it is a few days or less. For television shows, the assumption is that each yearly season corresponds to a year in real life. So compressing an entire season into a couple months or less qualifies as this trope.

* From the perspective of its protagonist, ''Film/BackToTheFuturePartII'' seems to take place in the course of two very busy days, at most. Otherwise, it took about sixty years. Your choice. The first film begins in October 25, 1985 at 8:25am and Marty travels to 1955 around 1:21am on the 26th. There he spends a week (from November the 5th to the 12th) only to return to 1985 10 minutes before he originally left. He wakes up on the morning of October 26 and travels, along with the Doc and Jennifer, to 2015 where he spends just under three hours. Then he spends about six hours in the alternate 1985 during the night of October 26-27, the whole of November 12, 1955 again but this time he spends the night. He departs 1955 on November 16 after Doc fixes the DeLorean and heads to September 2, 1885, where he spends another week and then he returns to October 27, 1985 at 11am. At the end, he spent '''16 days''' time traveling in two days. {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d by Doc when they go back to 1955.

* ''VideoGame/{{Shantae}}: Half-Genie Hero'' takes place over the course of a single day despite all the running around she does. This gets Lampshaded InUniverse after the fifth boss, with her companions noting that stopping evil five times in one day is a personal best for her.
