The night after another unsatisfactory New Year party, Tim's father tells his son that the men in his family have always had the ability to travel through time. Tim can't change history, but he can change what happens and has happened in his own life, so he decides to make his world a better place by getting a girlfriend. But as his unusual life progresses, Tim discovers that, in the end, making the most of life may not need time travel at all.

Laugh out loud moments. Makes you think about the things that you might change if you could and would they really make a difference in the end? The characters are very endearing and make the movie. Have a hanky ready at the end. Great message about enjoying the time that you have.

A very fun Rom-Con- fantasy movie. Somewhat of a tear jerker on family & life. I loved it.

There could not be a more perfect movie. I've seen the film several times, but each time I find something that I love about it. From the family dynamics to the romance and even time travel. I love love love everything about it.

This is not "The Time Traveler's Wife", but it also stars Rachel McAdams as the wife of a time traveler.

"About Time" is more than a romcom: It's a love story--finding love, and retaining love. Tim meets Mary, and the rest is history--that is revisited, explored, and modified.

If you need to rekindle a lost love, this is the movie for you.

If you are looking for a romantic comedy to watch with your beloved on Valentine's Day, this time travel relationship lark is delightful. If you need a message, it is that life is bittersweet so focus on the sweet parts and live life to the fullest, even if you can't time travel back to fix the awkward bits.

Lovely, lovely film about love, relationships, and the care we have through time for each other and how it grows and changes and just gets better with time (pardon the pun)! The time travel twist made the movie just that much sweeter. I needed to sit and watch it in one sitting. Really, really enjoyed it!

Sweet movie, with a heartwarming message. I liked it better than Love Actually. I didn't know anything about it before I watched it, other than Bill Nighy was in it (who was great as usual). I liked being surprised by the plot, and enjoyed most of the characters, especially those in the leading roles.

Cute movie - a little long. They could have shaved it down to 90 minutes. All the same, if you enjoyed Love Actually, you will probably enjoy this.

Light-hearted British drama-comedy about limited time travel. Entertaining for all adults. Are there really dinner places that are in complete darkness? Doesn't sound like a very hygenic dinner venue.

Rated 8/10. While I thought this movie started out a bit iffy, it definitely improved as it went along.

The portrayl of the relationship between father and son was good.

It puts a different twist of the idea of time travel, which was interesting.

Overall, a good movie.

And in the end I think I've learned the final lesson from my travels in time; and I've even gone one step further than my father did: The truth is I now don't travel back at all, not even for the day, I just try to live every day as if I've deliberately come back to this one day, to enjoy it, as if it was the full final day of my extraordinary, ordinary life.

From IMDb:
Tim: We're all traveling through time together, every day of our lives. All we can do is do our best to relish this remarkable ride.

Tim: And in the end I think I've learned the final lesson from my travels in time; and I've even gone one step further than my father did: The truth is I now don't travel back at all, not even for the day, I just try to live every day as if I've deliberately come back to this one day, to enjoy it, as if it was the full final day of my extraordinary, ordinary life.
===
Tim: And so he told me his secret formula for happiness. Part one of the two part plan was that I should just get on with ordinary life, living it day by day, like anyone else.

Tim: But then came part two of Dad's plan. He told me to live every day again almost exactly the same. The first time with all the tensions and worries that stop us noticing how sweet the world can be, but the second time noticing. Okay, Dad. Let's give it a go.

Good movie. And Margo is the added attraction in this one. I don't think I would've turned it down.
