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.

Some people will revel in this warm front of innocence; others will reach for their Voltaire.

There's a lot of comic and fantasy potential here, but much of it gets squandered.

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.

The film takes few of the liberties you'd expect from its genre, and it conforms to an internal logic throughout.

It's all so perfect and sparkly that Curtis would rather not break the mood with drama or plot.

Perhaps, like me, you find the oeuvre of British writer-director Richard Curtis a bit -- how shall I put it -- twee?

The latest sprawling romcom/family drama from Richard Curtis way outlasts its charm.
November 1, 2013
A soap opera of babies, poignant moments, minor crises, and lessons about savouring each day.

I cannot help but fall for Richard Curtis's rather self-indulgent romantic comedies. My level head might be crying 'No,' but my lopsided heart can't help but say yes.

The script is so willy-nilly about the complexities of the issues it introduces that it winds up collapsing.
November 1, 2013
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 ...

For all its glutinous cuteness, damn if "About Time" doesn't sneak up and sock you in the tear ducts. I tried not to fall for it. I failed.

By the time you get home from the multiplex, it will be as if the whole thing never happened.

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.

Nighy makes it all OK, or mostly.

Time travel can be a nifty device for stirring and complicating romantic drama.
