Time travel does not change What's Important
Verified purchase
This is a wonderful movie, nay a tale of what is important in life!

Traveling in time just emphasises the importance of this. I have to admit that as a massive Sci-Fi, fantasy and Action fan I was somewhat dubious of this movie. Yet I love time travel concepts (Primer anyone?).

Wonderful to see the joys of time travel not being involved in becoming a millionaire or something mental. Just a nice, cool awkward guy just falling for the girl of his dreams and starting a family. While also dealing with the other sides of life.

Honestly watch this movie and if you manage to watch this movie with your lady, then put an arm around her shoulders on the sofa, give her a hug and realise life is good (you may even get a kiss).

I am not embarrassed to say I had a few tears in my eyes watching this lovely tale. Love Da Bard xx

Cloying and trite
Verified purchase
I'm staggered this film's got such a high rating. I found it to be a car crash. The Curtis dialogue and delivery doesn't match the lead character in this, probably it's become a bit tiresome by now, he was a constant mix of Hugh Grant and Harry Potter and it grates from the outset. Even more tiresome are the characters delivering off the cuff lines that clearly took Curtis several days to write, and in this case it looks forced, fake, and unnatural. Then there's the sci-fi elements which are under exploited and had potential for more laughs or drama - although he's managed to avoid the pitfall of painting himself into a corner with over elaborate sequences - there are still mistakes though, deletion of events that are never explained; there were a few genuinely funny and engaging moments. Narrative overall was insufficient, showing a writer/director/exec producer with no outside input, there was little to keep me occupied. All the stock Curtis characters reappear - underachieving, quirky sibling, funny housemate, cool parents, blah blah. What was good? Without Rachel McAdams and Tom Hollander it would have been impossible to get to the end. One other gripe is Curtis putting all his energy into making the viewer get emotional, he milks it unashamedly and alienates the audience in his attempts. Overall cloying and trite, few actors can pull this off and they're both the wrong age now: Grant and Firth, both geniuses of timing and subtlety, missing here.

Heart warming great
Verified purchase
A heart warming good movie. I was really before I saw it I was sure I was going to be in for a long night. As much as my wife likes romantic movie, she hate British movies. Suddenly the night is getting longer. It took both of us by surprise.

All the actors played their parts perfectly. Everything of the movie was done right. There were laugh out loud moments, in the normalcy of the moments. For example watching his wife choosing an outfit, and going slightly mad, we have all been there mate.

On his 21 birthday Tim is told by his father about the family secret. He has the ability to travel back in time. Just in his own lifetime, and as long as he does not make any big changes he can avoid the butterfly effect. I enjoyed this movie so much more that I thought I would. I would recommend it to anyone.

Wanted to watch something a little different to my usual. People tend to talk so much about if they had the chance they would go back in time to put things right or chance how they done things …we all want those special moments back with loved ones or wish we could have a different life. Love these type of stories tell you to appreciate each day. There is no point going back constantly to chance things as you wont live your life. This film had one of the best endings. Appreciate life. This reminded me of the Butterfly effect, just even if it was possible I wouldn't take the offer.

Very nice gentle film - well worth watching
Verified purchase
This is a great film which is both gentle and bitter sweet. The cast are excellent. It provides a new slant on time travel, but it is really a Romcom with a twist. Very entertaining and worth your time if you are more interested in human emotions, and a change from all the action hero shoot-em ups!

Watched exactly 23 minutes and it was enough
Verified purchase
Yet another film with rich people who think they're quite poor, really. Total lack of self-awareness and really a very tone-deaf film for anyone except those who think most people are lawyers or succesful artists. Made me re-think the Curtis stuff from the 90s and I think that was probably equally blinkered, but I just didn't have enough life experience at the time to see it.

Totally boring
Verified purchase
"ABOUT A BOY" AND "FOUR WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL" were decent, watchable films. This film, made in the same formalistic style is, by comparison, crap. The plot is ridiculous and the characters superficial and devoid of any real emotion. I've seen better acting on tv soaps. I blame this not so much on the cast but on the director and the poor script .Totally bored, I gave up watching this film after 90 minutes.

Half a funny movie
Verified purchase
The actors ooze charm, young and old, not least irrepressible Bill Nighy. The script cuts a dash too, playfully engaging with the central conceit of time travel and somehow revitalising the well-worn cliches. All goes well until midway, when the film runs out of ideas (and jokes) and goes for sentimentality. But it's nice to see a non-Oedipal father-son for once. A pleasant night in but I suspect quickly forgotten.
