James VS His Future Self Reviews

May 1, 2020
Daniel Stern gives a moving performance as a crabby old physicist jumping back decades to prevent his past mistakes.
April 30, 2020
Well-meaning but crass time-travel comedy has drinking, pot.
April 30, 2020
Amusing but off-key in some unhelpful ways, it's a dorky time-killer that doesn't suffer too much for its familiar vibe.

...the film is a blessed novelty, both as a rom-com and as a time-travel story. Let's face it, we've seen a few too many Terminator chapters to expect something this fresh.
April 6, 2020
This is a film that savours conversational awkwardness and amorous fumblings, and takes its time developing a sentimental payoff.

When was the last time someone in a romantic comedy delivered a Schrödinger's cat zinger?

James Vs. His Future Self goes down the well-worn path of a guy who needs help with romance, but it brings enough new to the game to keep it interesting.
April 1, 2020
The film is too slow in places, sagging a bit in the middle as it comes to rely too much on the romance, but the witty script delivers plenty of laughs and despite the highbrow subject matter the writers are not afraid of lowbrow humour.

The time travel aside, it's essentially a rom-com with occasional existential thoughts.

James vs. His Future Self is a fun romp worthy of your time.
March 21, 2020
Jeremy LaLonde's movie is a fun blend of sci-fi, comedy, and critique of the modern relationship to identity; it doesn't always stick the landing in an attempt to balance these disparate elements but is certainly worth looking out for.
March 20, 2020
The story has a strong plot-line and wonderful cast who portray their characters well for a heartfelt film based on discovering to spend your time in the present.
March 19, 2020
By focusing on the human element, it becomes an affable, surprisingly-tender dramedy that uses sci-fi as a boost rather than the endgame.
March 10, 2020
An intelligent and well-drawn character piece, with an engaging lead performance that dances comfortably between the cerebral and the silly.
March 10, 2020
A compelling premise, slightly raunchy humour, and plenty of heart.
March 4, 2020
A frequently witty and spirited work that benefits immeasurably from that dynamite turn from Daniel Stern.
