    Review

    For more than three decades, filmmaker Richard Curtis (Love Actually, Notting Hill, Four Weddings and a Funeral) has crafted his signature voice in the world of movies and television, giving audiences unforgettable characters who have alternately allowed us to laugh at our ever-so-human foibles and to share a tear at the extraordinary journeys that accompany our ordinary lives.

    Now, with About Time, Curtis gives us his most personal film to date.

    At the age of 21, Tim Lake (Domhnall Gleeson) discovers he can travel in time…

    The night after another unsatisfactory New Year party, Tim’s father (Bill Nighy) tells his son that the men in his family have always had the ability to travel through time. Tim can’t change history, but he can change what happens and has happened in his own life—so he decides to make his world a better place...by getting a girlfriend. Sadly, that turns out not to be as easy as you might think.

    Moving from the Cornwall coast to London to train as a lawyer, Tim finally meets the beautiful but insecure Mary (Rachel McAdams). They fall in love, then an unfortunate time-travel incident means he’s never met her at all. So they meet for the first time again—and again—but finally, after a lot of cunning time traveling, he wins her heart.

    Tim then uses his power to create the perfect romantic proposal, to save his wedding from the worst best-man speeches and to save his best friend from professional disaster. But as his unusual life progresses, Tim finds out that his unique gift can’t save him from the sorrows and ups and downs that affect all families, everywhere. There are great limits to what time travel can achieve, and it can be dangerous, too.

    About Time is a comedy about love and time travel, which discovers that, in the end, making the most of life may not need time travel at all.

    From Richard Curtis, the creative soul who gave us "Notting Hill" and "Love Actually," we have an R-rated romantic comedy that satisfies our need for the occasional outing that features unabashedly happy families, solid marriages and well-loved children. Plus, it boasts the most hilarious wedding reception I think I've ever seen.

    A young man inherits a family trait that allows him to replay key moments in time and change them to his advantage. We come to laugh out loud whenever he says "Would you please excuse me for a moment?"

    It features:
    * Domhnall Gleeson ("Anna Karenina") is Tim, the fellow who can manipulate time, but who can't foretell some of the results. You can see the warm intelligence in his eyes.
    * Rachel McAdams ("The Vow") is Mary, the object of his affections. This Canadian actress is no stranger to relationships with time travelers ("The Time Traveler's Wife"); but we laugh when her Mary insists she won't take her panties off for Scotland! (You'll love the scene.)
    * Bill Nighy ("Blow Dry") is Bill's father. Dad is a cautious veteran of this phenomenon. This character is droll, wise, and a great father.
    * Lindsay Duncan (LOTS of British TV) Her sweetly ferocious Mum fooled me. I actually thought I was watching the French actress Julie Delpy!
    * Lydia Wilson (British TV) is Kit Kat, Tim's rambunctious sister who causes a LOT of turmoil.
    * Mitchell Mullen ("RED 2") is Mary's father, Fitz, who is mentally out to lunch much of the time.

    The plot becomes fairly complex so it can become a challenge to follow if you have any hearing problems because much of it is either murmured or whispered. The script is witty and warm but there were times I needed captions; I know I'll LOVE my DVD!

    LOVED this movie!! In my opinion there haven't been any good chick flicks out for a long time- either they're really crass or lacking endearment- both in regard to characters and plot. With that in mind this movie came thru where others have fallen short. Not only were the characters memorable and easy to root for but the plot itself was creative, funny, sweet and tear-inducing. I especially liked how the actor who played the main character is a normal run of the mill guy- felt like someone I'd know in real life (well aside from the time traveling of course...hehe). A definite must see!! I highly recommend :)

    PS- My husband went with me (gasp b/c he doesn't like chick flicks) and he even teared up at the end and said it was "good"... that right there carries more weight than what I wrote above ;)

    Format: DVD
    It's rare when a movie comes around that defies normal classifications. Here in "About Time" we have a romance mixed with a bit of fantasy mixed with a dose of sci-fi and the end result is magic. The story follows Tim, played by Domhnall Gleeson, who finds out from his father (Bill Nighy) on his 21st birthday that he can travel in time, something all men in his family are able to do. Of course, not fully understanding the ramifications of time travel he accidentally erases the recent chance meeting he had with Mary, played by Rachel McAdams, and as such he no longer has her contact information and she will no longer remember him at all.

    It is fascinating to watch Tim move through events in his life with the realization that he could go back and fix them if he said or did something wrong. From the scenes where he goes back in time to his first crush to the scenes of his and Mary's "first time" we get to see a character in Tim with a lot of heart. The ability to move about in time could be used for some many nefarious reasons, but Tim ends up almost exclusively using it to try to make Mary happy and to check in with his father.

    The bottom line is this is a movie that just needs to be seen. It really is part chick flick and part sci-fi which should make most everyone happy. One of the most original films I've seen in a long, long time.

    Format: Blu-ray
    This is a charming romantic comedy with a message: value your life, family and friendships.

    It's another movie from Richard Curtis, who specialises in this kind of feel good romantic comedy- "Love Actually", "Bridget Jones' Diary", "Notting Hill", "Four Weddings and a Funeral" were all written by him, and he directed "Love Actually" as well.

    He is an expert in developing these types of stories in an engaging manner, as well as having a message.

    What gets this story moving is a father's revelation to his son that they have the power to travel through time.

    There are some comedic moments based on this plot device, but the story moves on to be a conventional romantic comedy- including the element of "boy gets girl; boy loses girl; boy gets girl back again".

    There are several subplots to keep things moving along.

    The performances are generally good- Domhnall Gleeson is convincing as the time traveller, and Rachel McAdams is charming as his girlfriend. Bill Nighy puts in another good cameo as the father.

    This is an enjoyable "feel good" romantic comedy- ideal for a date night DVD at home. It has a happy ending, with a Richard Curtis life message for you (akin to the ending of Love Actually).

    Is it a great film? I don't think so, but it is a charming light entertainment. I doubt you would regret seeing it.

    I know the Blu-ray does. Universal's (the studio behind this movie) Blu-ray combo packs (Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Download) always have an iTunes digital copy AND a UV digital copy.
