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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

The Time Traveler's Wife is an effective romance film for the ladies with a patina of science fiction to woo their boyfriends into joining.

A fastidiously old-fashioned love story with sloppy, soppy existential ideas and more than enough droll narrative tricks to see it through to the end.
Full Review | Original Score: 68/100

Time travel is an interesting plot device, even when it doesn't work well. It works just barely well enough in this movie.

I'm over the moon about this movie, which smooths out the psychological dissonances in Audrey Niffenegger's fine novel but is still an emotional workout.

In a pretty disappointing summer, I was surprised at how smart, involving and Sci-Fi geeky cool this was.
