Even in a work of science fiction like this, Gleeson seems beyond real. All those foam-faces being made in the dark? They're for him.

To get to the parts that are un-terrible, you have to suffer through the most idiotic plot developments and ill-defined characters imaginable.

You may as well check your cynicism at the door, because Curtis & Co. are going to find a way to trample all over it - adorably.

With more attention to detail, this could have worked, but the time travel aspects are so badly executed that the movie as a whole falters and eventually rips apart at the seams.

A mostly charming romance, leavened by deft comedy, interesting sidelights (there are a few wonderful jabs at the world of the British theater) and a lovely cast.

For moviegoers who can't fathom any situation worth $10.50 to witness everlasting love, steer clear of "About Time." But the drama offers something for almost everyone else ...

It likely won't top the box office of such previous Curtis enchantments as Love Actually and Four Weddings and a Funeral, but like most soppy encounters, it'll do.

About Time does not waste time having its characters try to significantly alter the future by killing Hitler or evil cyborgs. It prefers to blindside you with sentimentality and see how that goes.

Gleeson and McAdams make a touching, lifelike couple, but by the time the movie starts telling us to live each day as if we were going back and doing it all over again, you may feel Curtis has mistaken hokum for wisdom.

Beautiful to look at, with its seaside estates and its rain-soaked weddings and besotted characters being lovely to one another, but it's a treacly greeting card coming from someone whose love letters used to have a little more bite.

In Curtis's hands, time travel is really a way of learning how to live a better life. (Strangely, though, we're not meant to think there's anything creepy about playing puppetmaster with people's lives.)
