    Director Colin Trevorrow and writer Derek Connolly keep the film humming with funny and touching surprises. And Plaza is a flat-out enchantress. show more

    It's brisk and assured and never begs the audience's indulgence. No time is wasted. The movie is, at every moment, either funny or pushing the story forward, or both. show more

    It's equally endearing as a sweetly funny romance between two likable oddballs and as a low-tech time-travel thriller, and has something profound to say about making the most of the present. show more

    Based on a satirical ad, the premise of the movie intrigued me. I found the movie, however, to be pretentious, with a dull and unlikable main character. I don\'t feel it\'s current score is justified. The idea was good, but the execution was shaky.

    Finally a movie I really enjoyed, it\'s got everything going for it. A Interesting story with likeable characters that one could relate to and believe. ( Isn’t that what writing is all about ?) There is, the introvert, the inconsiderate *******, the geek, then there is the main character that you are never quite sure of till the end. It\'s the trendy and hip with a sci-fi twist with great writing and script, cute characters, cute song and not bad special effects. 4 stars for interesting script and doing such a great job with such a low budget. Great job
