John & Becky’s Movie Review of About Time

abouttimeBecky and I went to see a Sneak Preview of About Time a few weeks ago at the AMC Theaters in Highlands Ranch, CO.  The Fandango website at About Time describes the movie as follows…

”When Tim Lake (Domhnall Gleeson) is 21, his father (Bill Nighy) tells him a secret: The men in their family can travel through time. Although he can’t change history, Tim resolves to improve his life by getting a girlfriend. He meets Mary (Rachel McAdams), falls in love and finally wins her heart via time-travel and a little cunning. However, as his unusual life progresses, Tim finds that his special ability can’t shield him and those he loves from the problems of ordinary life…”

The Review:  About Time is a movie with a very interesting love story that hasn’t been done before, which is one of the reasons why we liked it.  The main character has been born with the unique power allowing him to go back in time at his will.  He doesn’t discover that he has this amazing power, until he has screwed up most of his relationships with women.  He isn’t that concerned about money or fame, but really wants to find true love.  When he finds his ideal mate, played by Rachel McAdams, he uses his powers to do whatever he can to gain her love by essentially hitting the reset button whenever he screws up.


The film is very clever and quite fun to watch because each time he goes back in time, he runs the risk of messing something else up in the future.  The dynamics between the characters is really well done and there are some interesting situations that they all find themselves in throughout the movie.  It will make you think about how you would use the ability to go back in time and change your life and what the consequences of such power could be.  What seems like a great idea, could actually drastically change the outcome of your life.  It will make you realize that it’s better that we cannot control something as simple as time.

Becky and I both really liked this movie and at the end of the film the audience applauded.   This is always strange since they are just applauding for one another expressing how much they liked the movie.  Nevertheless, most people who have seen it really liked it, even if the majority of movie critics thought it was just an okay movie.  We thought that it was really well done and definitely worth the price of admission, especially as a date movie.
