    Like a doggie in a window, this romcom relentlessly wags its tail so you'll fall in love and take it home. Not this time, puppy. show more

    The self-consciousness that made the director's "Love Actually" a love-it-or-hate-it film is dialed way down. About Time is more of a love-it-or-like-it proposition. show more

    What results is amusing, gently entertaining and might induce a tear or two. show more

    What makes the calculated sentimentality palatable is Curtis’ intelligent assurance as he guides us through each step. It’s a gooey indulgence, to be sure, but one that will please anybody with a cinematic sweet tooth. show more

    There are just enough laugh-out-loud moments here to excuse the lurches into shameless, tear-jerking sentimentality. show more

    Then Bill Nighy shows up and is awesome and punches you in the heart. It ultimately feels like a cheat, and while there won’t be a dry eye in the house, it won’t be earned. show more

    About Time is ... about time: It asks us to reflect on how we all use that resource, how the hours and minutes that make up a day or a life align with our intentions and values. show more

    Enjoy the love in your life, and don't squander it: That's all Curtis is selling here, really. With Gleeson and McAdams at the forefront, About Time has a beguiling pair of rom-com miracle workers helping him close the sale. show more

    For all its glutinous cuteness, damn if About Time doesn’t sneak up and sock you in the tear ducts. I tried not to fall for it. I failed. show more

    A most romantic way to spend your time at the movies this fall, a “date picture” about do over dates that works, this time around. show more

    My wife and I love it, too. Reminds us of how wonderful this life is and how good it feels to love (and forgive) others. The "do-overs" are really clever. If you like a little comedy with your romance and a little romance with your fantasy, SEE IT!

    Very adorable and sweet movie. Not a big rom-com fan, but I really liked this.

    Time travel movies can be tricky. If done right they are amazing. This one is AMAZING.

    This is a warm, touching movie! I\'d go see it a couple of times.

    Not worth the money. Slow. Rachael McAdams was great! The actors WERE great. The movie wasn\'t. I could hardly wait to get out.

    This movie was even better than expected. Well cast and it runs full spectrum, happy, sad. A really good story as well. Highly recommended!!!
