Three sentence movie reviews: About Time
I’m kind of in the same camp as Tim’s Dad and would use my power to go back to any point in my life to read everything I want to read (and perhaps catch up on my movie viewing too,) but from a cinematic standpoint, it was probably more fun to watch Tim use his powers to get a girlfriend. This is a sweet and clever movie that manages to unexpectedly knock it out of the park near the end. Highly recommended.
ps. The wedding in this has become my new favorite wedding-in-film scene.
Cost: $2.00 from Videorama
Where watched: at home.

This movie didn't seem to sit well with a lot of critics. I'm glad to hear your point of view on it. I may see it some day, although I might need time traveling abilities to do so. 😉
Yet another man reviewer/woman reviewer chasm, I think. I didn't see it initially because of the tepid review in the paper. But two female friends gave it raves and they weren't wrong.
I was dying to see this. For some reason we never quite got to the theater to see it. Now I want to see it even more.
I think I would go back to have a few stern conversations with my teenage self. There were a few pining years I would like to nip in the bud. Not major regrets – just a slight adjustment!
