    Working Title pictures are almost their own cliche these days with their fantasy portrayals of upper-middle class British life that seem even further removed from reality now than before. This one even borrowed an idea from Four Weddings & A Funeral with the dress-picking scene. Still, if you forgive the shaky camera work, this one employs a clever plot device to dissect Richard Curtis's philosophical musings on life with another heart-warming feel-good story to add to the collection.

    About Time A rare example of a romantic comedy done in a fresh, memorable, and heartfelt way, About Time is an immensely enjoyable film. It takes an outlandish premise, that of time travel, and puts it in a narrative context that makes one hardly question it, and actually adds something to the story. Far from being a gimmick, it makes for a genuinely interesting exploration of the meaning of love, free will, death, and the choices we make. The chemistry between Domhnall Gleeson and Rachel McAdams is outstanding, as the two enliven every scene. It's a captivating film, it's an emotional film, and it's a funny film. 4.5/5 Stars

    Not your typical romcom, relying on a time travel fantasy element. This film is well acted and charming, with a surprisingly profound message. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
