Time travel has a new look -- bring tissues!

The Time Travelers Wife (rated PG-13) Run time 107 mins
Based on the 2003 novel by American author Audrey Niffenegger, the story of a young man (Eric Bana) with a genetic anomoly that causes him to time travel when he gets stressed. Though he often disappears from her life for long periods of time, he tries to build a romantic relationship with a young artist (Rachel McAdams). It feels a little disjointed at first, but it quickly settles into its groove.

Eric Bana has also been very busy this past year with Star Trek and Funny People, and in each movie he plays a very different character -- I'm sure he will be very busy in the future as well. And I find Rachel McAdams (The Notebook, Mean Girls, and upcoming Sherlock Holmes) just a delight to watch.

Do not try to analyze the science of time travel or how it works -- just go see this movie. True romance -- you can actually feel it. (and bring tissues)

  1. Unfortunately, it was way too hard for me to ignore the time travel aspect of this movie. Especially when he ended up butt naked in places. I think time travel should be left to Mr. Peabody and his pet boy Sherman in their wabac machine.
