At the age of 21, Tim discovers he can travel in time and change what happens and has happened in his own life. His decisions to make his world a better place by getting a girlfriend turns out not to be as easy as you might think.
I have to say I was a little hesitant about this film, but it is now one of my favorites. This romantic comedy is a film that I have been waiting for in a year of lackluster films. Rachel McAdams once again fits her character role perfectly as a shy bookworm looking for love. She finds it in the goofy but charming Tim, played by Domhnall Gleeson. The pairs on-screen chemistry is evident right from their first meeting and carries the movie along beautifully. It is refreshing to see a film portray healthy, fun relationships. This film is filled with family, love and laughter and makes you appreciate life’s every day, ordinary moments. This film leaves you wanting to treat everyday like it was a gift.
Although none of the characters in the movie smoke, there is one part where they show a picture on the wall of someone using tobacco. I feel that this was completely unnecessary for plot development and did not add to the film in anyway. Would anyone have even noticed if there was no tobacco in the picture on the wall?
