Three sentence movie reviews: The Time Traveler’s Wife
Had I not read this cleverly structured book, this would have been an okay movie. But unfortunately, I had and found this to be a pale imitation of the drama and pathos of the book, which I recommend you read (even you men!) The acting was good, and I was gleefully delighted to spot Alba for the first time, but if you must chose between the experiences, I recommend you skip the movie and read the book.

We tried to get a bunch of the gals who read this book together to watch the movie. It never came to fruition. Since I didn't love the book, I didn't fight to see the movie.
