Film Review: Slushy ‘About Time’ Still Says All You Need is Love

8 November 2013 6:41 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Writer/Director Richard Curtis is somewhat of a love guru. Fresh on the heels of the tenth anniversary of what is now his classic Christmas movie, “Love Actually,” comes his latest ode to amore. It’s about life, passion and – oh yeah – a little time travel. It’s “About Time.”

Rating: 3.0/5.0

This effort isn’t as cohesive as “Love Actually” but it still has that gooey center. To recall, “Love Actually” had some bitterness with its Christmas cheer. “About Time” doesn’t have as sharp a counterpoint – it’s mostly gooey center and that can get a bit messy. Yes, there is time travel, but it’s the most selfish time travel available – it’s all about the traveler and not the time. Period jumping is an old science fiction conceit, and in most hands fairly interesting (“Back to the Future,” “Star Trek IV”). The type of time travel »

About Time – The Review

7 November 2013 10:23 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Time to make another trip to movie “rom-com” land once more. Now let’s keep a stiff upper lip, since it’s set in jolly ole’ England, which as Roger Miller’s song says “swing like a pendulum do”! Okay, what are they offering across the pond? Seems they’ve tossed a big dollop of fantasy into the mix, namely time travel! Well that’s been used before in an effort to get couples together, from the McFly saga to Time After Time and Kate And Leopold. What if I tell you this new flick is from Richard Curtis the droll, witty writer behind Notting Hill and Four Weddings And A Funeral. Oh, and this is his third directorial effort after Pirate Radio and the cult classic Love Actually. Hopefully that will pique your interest. Enough background info, let’s talk about his latest. Hey, it’s About Time.

See new images from the excellent-looking About Time comedy directed by Richard Curtis, starring Domhnall Gleeson, Rachel McAdams and Bill Nighy. This is one film I can really recommend the trailer for, it's that good.

Also in the cast of the romance are Lindsay Duncan, Lydia Wilson, Tom Hollander, Margot Robbie, Richard Cordery, Joshua McQuire, Vanessa Kirby, Will Merrick and Tom Hughes. »

About Time Movie Review

2 October 2013 7:15 AM, PDT | RealBollywood.com | See recent RealBollywood news »

Movie: About Time; Cast: Domhnall Gleeson, Rachel McAdams, Bill Nighy, Lindsay Duncan, Tom Hollander, Margot Robbie, Richard Cordery; Director: Richard Curtis; Rating: **1/2 - Watch for a few good laughs.

Set in a characteristically middle-class English milieu, "About Time" is a sci-fi romantic comedy whose premise is very much on the lines of "Back to the Future" or "The Time Traveller's Wife", where the protagonist can travel back in time.

In an idyllic sea-side town in Cornwall, Tim Lake (Domhnall Gleeson) is like any other ordinary boy leading an ordinary life. He is adorably geeky but embarrassingly incompetent. »

‘About Time’ Review: Time-Traveling Charmer Arrives Right In the Nick

1 October 2013 3:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Romantic comedy fans have long been starving for satisfying genre fare to hit the box office, all the Valentine’s Days and New Year’s Eves and Arbor Days (surely, the next one, right?) notwithstanding, and it’s long seemed as if the When Harry Met Sally and You’ve Got Mail glory days (we loved Nora Ephron, what can we say?) were far gone. Yet, with Love Actually writer and director Richard Curtis finally returning to the sort of films he excels at crafting, it’s perhaps a bit early to consider the entire genre dead. Maybe it’s just sleeping. Curtis’ About Time certainly comes with an enviable pedigree (any film that features Curtis directing Bill Nighy is cause to celebrate), but it’s the film’s charming cast and cleverly tangled plot conceit that keeps it ticking right along. About Time centers on hapless young Tim (Domhnall Gleeson, who »

Director: Richard Curtis.

Starring: Domhnall Gleeson, Rachel McAdams, Bill Nighy, Lydia Wilson, Tom Hollander, Joshua McGuire, Lindsay DuncanMargot Robbie, Vanessa Kirby, Richard Cordery, Harry Hadden-Paton, Tom Hughes.

Running Time: 123 minutes.

Certificate: 12A.

Synopsis: When Tim (Domhnall Gleeson) discovers he can travel back in time, he decides to concentrate on getting a girlfriend, just like any other 21 year-old. After meeting the beautiful Mary (Rachel McAdams), Tim faces difficult decisions over whether to make her fall in love with him again to save those around him from their personal problems.

Chances are that if you were to try and work out the paradoxes of time travel in About Time by arranging a pile of straws into a pattern on a diner table, it would mess with your head and everyone would leave very confused. The film’s central concept is that the men in a certain family can travel to specific points in their own history, »

Film Review: ‘About Time’

8 August 2013 3:35 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As sweet, familiar and reassuringly bland as rice pudding, Richard Curtis’  “About Time” evokes a sense of deja vu, not least for anyone who’s seen “The Time Traveler’s Wife,” a conceptually similar love story that also co-starred Rachel McAdams. After the misadventure of “Pirate Radio,” Curtis returns to roost in the well-heeled, quintessentially English milieu that made him famous internationally as a scribe with “Four Weddings and a Funeral,” “Notting Hill,” and his directorial debut, “Love, Actually.” Still, the emphasis on fresh faces instead of Working Title’s usual thesping suspects adds some zing, and the pic will have a fine old time when it opens wide in the U.K. on Sept. 6. Universal will release the film Nov. 1 Stateside.

Although the plot covers a fair number of years in the characters’ lives, the period markers are kept to a minimum, and the film always seems to be »
