By the end, most will wish they could turn back the clock and buy a ticket for something else.

Little White Lies

Guilty pleasure alert: Richard Cutis' sugar-sweet film about love, life and, erm, time travel.

For Richard Curtis, this must have been hilarious on the page - but on the big screen it is tedious. At the end, I was left wondering, could I travel back in time to before I bought my ticket?

The Skinny

There is no dissection of love or the human condition here, only a syrupy river flowing away from the comedy zeitgeist that's so sweet it should come with a shot of insulin.

Writer-director Richard Curtis (Love Actually) papers over any disturbing subtext with wall-to-wall cuteness -- even the sex jokes sound as if they were lifted from greeting cards.

Curtis seems deaf to his own preaching, because at two hours, About Time is far too long for its thin parable.

Las Vegas Weekly

Eventually undone both by the flimsiness of its own sci-fi conceit and by Curtis' struggle to build fully realized characters other than Tim.

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.

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.

Life is all about time and I would wait for the DVD.

Kirk Honeycutt

A good-hearted film with nice moments but the gimmick is weak and its mawkish sentiments belong on Hallmark cards, not in a top-notch romantic comedy.

Robert Levin

Admirable effort, but the movie aims for the heartstrings so resolutely that it ultimately leaves much less of an emotional impact than it should.

The actors are excellent, but the story is not.

About Time is funny and charming as all get out, but its messy core keeps the many pieces of quirk, sentiment and romance from lining up into anything worthy of all the talent here.

Curtis has managed to achieve the impossible. Specifically: he has gone back to 1993 and remade Groundhog Day with a ginger Hugh Grant.

Perry Seibert
TV Guide's Movie Guide

For all its little pleasures, About Time just adds a level of magical realism to his typical themes that doesn't make love feel any more magical or any more real.

Curtis has said he may stop making movies, and on the basis of this film you can kind of see why: he's clearly in a rut

Arbitrary and inconsistent rules of time travel in aid of creepy romantic manipulation and temporal stalking. But hey, at least it's got Bill Nighy!

...Richard Curtis returns with another of his squishy works, likable actors engaging in weddings and funerals throughout a story that inevitably runs too long approaching a climax that will be in plain view for anyone who's seen a movie or two.
