Synopsis


About Time
A young man with the ability to time travel discovers that finding true love isn't as easy as he thought it would be in this romantic comedy from writer/director Richard Curtis (Love Actually, Pirate Radio). Tim Lake (Domhnall Gleeson) is 21 and lonely. In the harsh morning light following a depressing New Year's Eve party, however, he discovers a family secret that will change his life forever. Entrusted by his father (Bill Nighy) with the knowledge that the men in their family can time travel, Cornwall native Tim relocates to London to study law, and find a girlfriend. The moment Tim locks eyes with gorgeous Mary (Rachel McAdams) he knows he's found the woman of his dreams. But as soon as they've fallen in love, an unexpected glitch in the time travel renders them complete strangers again. Now, in order to win back Mary's heart, Tim will have to travel into the past time and again. Eventually, he seems to master the process, using his unique talent to create an unforgettable marriage proposal, ensure his wedding to Mary goes off without a hitch, and circumvent a massive traffic jam that blocks their route to the hospital when his wife goes into labor, but in time Tim discovers that the true key to happiness lies not in his ability to fix the problems of the past, but instead make the absolute most of his life in the present. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    A great romantic film with a superpower twist

    This is a solid romantic film, excellent for a date night (especially if both parties are Dr. Who fans or liked similar movies such as "Happy Accidents"). It's also (surprisingly) not a bad father-son film (again, if the Dr. Who - or Rachel McAdams - fan part holds true for both). The lead couple are charming and awkward, as is typical in Richard Curtis films. Bill Nighy is excellent in his fatherly role, and Tom Hollander plays an excellent curmudgeon with an understated soft side. There are also beautiful scenes of the Cornish countryside (atypically sunny - but one very funny rainy scene). There are some excellent examples of tough choices and strong moral values. It is important to keep in mind that the time traveling aspect is a plot device and not overthink it.

    This movie goes up there with "The Notebook", "The time travelers wife", and "Labor day". I am sure that some more can be named along the lines of this genre. Rachel M. Plays a good part in the movie. She is convincingly in love with every man she acts with. The movie is a tear jerker as I would turn to see my wife crying and smiling. Sometimes just crying. Just about every woman has seen "The Notebook" and or us men have heard about it at some point since this movie has come out. If you are trying to score some brownie points this is one of the movie to see with your loved one. Great story line. Easy to follow and understand, but not enough to figure out the whole plot in the first 15 minutes.

    A delightful Romantic Comedy

    A delightful surprise we enjoyed so thoroughly we later bought it in Blu Ray and have viewed it 3 times. Kinda like a romantic/coming of age, comedic twist of Groundhog Day meets Dr Who in that the main male character can use a modest form of time travel to do minor edits of social situations gone awry. Filmed on location in Cornwall and London England. Poignant, funny, quirky yet warm. The madcap 4 minute crossing Abbey Road on the way to the hospital for a delivery deleted scene/outtake is worth the price of the movie. Can't recommend it enough for those who love the romantic comedy genre. Great actors, too!

    For some reason this movie didn't make as big of a splash you would have thought. There's some great actors in it, and it is a clever story that I found very engaging. Who wouldn't want to be able to travel back in time?! And the premise could have had the main character traveling back in time for greedy or bizarre reasons, but instead he ends up being very down-to-earth and lives a fairly "normal" life in the sense that he gets married and has children. Great movie!

    This is not just a chick flick. Everyone should see this film. Its characters are memorable and easy to root for and the plot itself was original, funny, sweet and tear-inducing. It begs the question of what would you change if you could do something over again, but without the "butterfly effect." No horror here. Just tender bittersweet relationships of a regular guy who's men in the family can time travel. But there are drawbacks. You have to see this movie. Highly highly recommend it.

    I love this film. No really, really love it. EVERYONE should see this film! An amazing message, fun and quirky characters living life with wit, heartbreak, and revelation. YES, this is a bit of a tear-jearker, but hubby loved it despite that ( it got him too) and was SUPER glad he saw it ....and he's very different from me!!! LOTS of humor as well. A true tale of life as a human in a mixed-up world.....with a twist!!!

    My wife loves romantic comedies, and I generally half-watch them while doing other things due to the lack of originality and true comedy that the genre generates. About Time happens to be one of the best romantic comedies that I've seen in years, and I'd recommend it for all sorts of tastes. The movie is funny, clever, and a bit original in the way it navigates the relationship of the protagonist. This movie delivers a great combination of laughs and drama.

    Movie Superb, Title Deceptive (Fandango cash?!)

    About Time is one of my favorite movies of the year--a movie that can change the way you see your life. My problem is with the way this is advertised online. It says the movie includes $7.50 Fandango cash, but does not specify it is for only one movie--"Fifty Shades of Grey." When I ordered it online, I was excited to get to see a movie in theaters--one of my choice--through Fandango, but the coupon is only for one specific movie!
