Much of this movie was kind of annoying, and as with many time travel stories, there were unexplained inconsistencies. That being said, it has a lovely message, and many scenes were fun. I wouldn't rush to see it but it's enjoyable enough.

I really enjoyed the movie and wish I had a few "do overs".

About Time is about so much more - it's about the bonds we share, the mistakes we make, the lives we live and the beauty to be found in learning to embrace them all each and every day.

Full of warmth and wit, with unexpected plot turns, pleasant surprises and heartbreaking truths about the human condition that not even time traveling can outwit, it's a film you may just find yourself wanting to relive again and again.

What's not to like about this movie?? Endearing characters, inventive take on well used time travel storyline.I found myself wishing I was part of that quirky family.

Looking back three months after watching it, it still seems one of the best movies of the year. It uses a fantasy to dramatize our human struggles. The dialogue are wonderful.

I have to see all movies with Bill Nighy.......good or bad.

Great movie ! Very funny ..... and Rachel McAdams is gorgeous as always. Well worth the time.

I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. When it started out, I thought it seemed kind of "adolescent". However, the longer I watched, the better it got. The treatment of time travel was rather unique, as were some of the consequences. Some very touching scenes and some great messages about how much we can really do for someone else. The movie is very humorous but never at anyone's expense, so you do become very attached to these characters. That makes a couple scenes near the end all the more poignant.
