But I should say, if you take out the part about the dumb premise, the acting is quite good--it almost makes you forget you're watching the big screen version of the tv show "Quantum Leap."

The Time Traveler's Wife is a chick flick all around, and fans of the chick flick genre are going to eat this movie up.

That the actors can pull off such Oprah-friendly, sci-fi-inflected sap and keep straight faces is the most fantastic thing about this loopy love story.

The movie also introduces the concept of time-traveling fetuses, yet we're never treated to this in any visual way.

As it stands, The Time Traveler's Wife is decent evening's entertainment with an intriguing enough premise and some strong heart tugging to keep the women happy and the men from getting too bored.

A great leading couple and an interesting concept make The Time Traveler's Wife a romance worth remembering for its normality.

It's beautifully crafted and endearingly old-fashioned all the way; an alluring soap opera for those who like to dive into the deep end of the syrup pool.

You can constantly feel The Time Traveler's Wife reaching for emotional depth, yet it never gets there.
February 6, 2010
With a dash of Benjamin Button and Back to the Future, this existential travelogue with supersized erotic separation anxiety issues, may leave viewers not in the mood for long distance time travel, simply with a case of lingering jet lag.

I kept doing what every fantasy should never allow one to do--question it every step of the way.

While the script could have done more to exploit Bana's sense of humour, it does profit from his directness. There are no false heroics.

Sure to hit the spot for anyone with an appetite for sweet, unselfconscious romantic fantasy.

Bana and McAdams do share a pleasant chemistry, but can never quite trump the dull and earnest nature of the material they are working with here.
November 5, 2009
This is undoubtedly Bana's best American performance and you can genuinely believe in Bana and McAdams as lovers who give the story its emotion.
November 4, 2009
A graceful, elegant love story, that carefully avoids quasi-science, time travelling philosophy or mills and boon style passionate embraces, focussing instead on the means by which two truly star crossed lovers cope with their unique lives together.

I don't think the book is a masterpiece but the film is just plain disappointing.
November 4, 2009
Without any notion of what type of film it wants to be, The Time Traveller's Wife is neither funny nor charming, moving nor romantic.
November 3, 2009
The Time Traveller's Wife makes for an enjoyable enough movie experience, if all you are after is a few tears, a nice romance and a frequently naked Eric Bana; but viewers unfamiliar with the novel might be left wondering what all the fuss was about.

It's a complex and often confusing story as the two key characters weave in and out of different time zones, but somehow it works; no doubt due to terrific performances by Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana
