Sadly, that turns out not to be as easy as he thinks.

More Info:
  • Kimberley Jones

    The movie moves episodically, leisurely, through roughly a decade, and that feels like a gift: to nestle in with these extraordinary, ordinary people and get to know them.

  • Joel Arnold

    About Time is ... about time: It asks us to reflect on how we all use that resource, how the hours and minutes that make up a day or a life align with our intentions and values.

    NPR Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    Maybe it's a touch twee, but Curtis' film is far too uplifting, too life-affirming and too good-natured to do anything but embrace.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Mark Dinning

    More than just a time-travel rom-com, this is a movie that asks you questions and doesn’t sugar-coat as many of the answers as you’d expect. Smart and sweet, funny and genuinely moving. Should probably come with a ‘there’s something in my eye’ warning.

  • Claudia Puig

    What results is amusing, gently entertaining and might induce a tear or two.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    For all its glutinous cuteness, damn if About Time doesn’t sneak up and sock you in the tear ducts. I tried not to fall for it. I failed.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Peter Hartlaub

    The self-consciousness that made the director's "Love Actually" a love-it-or-hate-it film is dialed way down. About Time is more of a love-it-or-like-it proposition.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Enjoy the love in your life, and don't squander it: That's all Curtis is selling here, really. With Gleeson and McAdams at the forefront, About Time has a beguiling pair of rom-com miracle workers helping him close the sale.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    Gleeson and McAdams make a touching, lifelike couple, but by the time the movie starts telling us to live each day as if we were going back and doing it all over again, you may feel Curtis has mistaken hokum for wisdom.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    A most romantic way to spend your time at the movies this fall, a “date picture” about do over dates that works, this time around.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Genevieve Koski

    That messy sprawl makes for a messy film full of highs and lows, triumphs and regrets... But those willing—or eager—to indulge About Time’s schmaltziest moments are rewarded with hits of pure, uncut joy and sorrow.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Leslie Felperin

    Curtis ends up making a virtue out of the narrative’s episodic quality, a tendency that’s been criticized in his previous work; the film, like life, is just one damn thing after another, and that’s really the rather lovely point.

    Variety Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    The movie is written and directed by the British filmmaker Richard Curtis, who specializes in fantasies — the dozen intersecting rom-coms of "Love Actually" the fairy-tale courtship of "Notting Hill", the endless receptions of "Four Weddings And A Funeral." At a glance, About Time appears to be of a piece with those crowd-pleasers.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    There’s a lot of comic and fantasy potential here, but much of it gets squandered.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Susan Wloszczyna

    That the stars of the show are none other than the esteemed Richard Griffiths and Richard E. Grant in invaluable cameo roles and that they end up provoking some of the biggest laughs of the movie demonstrates why Curtis is a comedy genius. Full Review
  • Bruce Ingram

    Everyone involved is far too talented to mess this up too badly, but it soon becomes clear that Curtis intends to reduce us to quivering sobs mixed with heartfelt gratitude for every blessed day of life.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    Curtis pulls off some amusing moments, and he has a secret weapon: Nighy, who is so jolly and funny you wish he’d had more screen time.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Chris Cabin

    A surprisingly thoughtful romantic comedy that shirks a great deal of reason and consequence in the name of love.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    It’s not as good, nor as involving, as “Love Actually.” But like that film, it has Bill Nighy, and that’s good for something.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Robbie Collin

    About Time is itself a film less directed than quilted: it’s a feathery old patchwork under which you might snuggle at the end of a tiring week.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Stephen Dalton

    There are just enough laugh-out-loud moments here to excuse the lurches into shameless, tear-jerking sentimentality.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    There’s a creepy subtext to all this, especially when Tim uses his time-travel gifts to woo an American girl without her assent.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    With more attention to detail, this could have worked, but the time travel aspects are so badly executed that the movie as a whole falters and eventually rips apart at the seams.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    There are the usual gaggle of embarrassing friends, a lot of voice-over and montages, a wedding, a funeral and wait … something’s missing. Oh, right. Hugh Grant.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    I’m being deliberately mean about a plot device that Curtis wants to come off as a goofy, harmless comic metaphor, but the idea that this implausible inherited trait is actually a cryptic, creepazoid form of domination over women is right there in the movie. Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Like a doggie in a window, this romcom relentlessly wags its tail so you'll fall in love and take it home. Not this time, puppy.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    About Time is like a sermon that starts with a few good jokes and ends with tremulous exhortations to live, live.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Jordan Hoffman

    Then Bill Nighy shows up and is awesome and punches you in the heart. It ultimately feels like a cheat, and while there won’t be a dry eye in the house, it won’t be earned. Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    What makes the calculated sentimentality palatable is Curtis’ intelligent assurance as he guides us through each step. It’s a gooey indulgence, to be sure, but one that will please anybody with a cinematic sweet tooth.

  • Keith Uhlich

    In a word: Ugh.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Catherine Shoard

    Curtis's heart is in the right place. In fact, it's all over the place – front and centre and backlighting the whole thing with a benevolent glow. But it is hard not to watch this, read the news that it will probably be his last as a director, and look to the future.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    A flimsy bit of mildly romantic, putatively comic Anglophile bait.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Gabe Toro

    About Time, inadvertently, reveals itself to be About Men, and how they devise lies in order to create the illusion that all women supposedly want to see.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Anthony Lane

    What Rachel McAdams is doing in this nonsense is anyone's guess, but she must realize that the long journey from "Mean Girls" to Mary, with her mousy bangs and her timid pleas counts as a serious descent. [11 Nov. 2013, p.90]
