Richard Curtis, the screenwriter who shaped the modern romantic comedy with hits “Four Weddings and a Funeral,” “Notting Hill” and “Bridget Jones’s Diary,” has directed only three movies, but the filmmaker is already prepared to call it quits. He said he will stop making movies after his latest offering, “About Time,” opens this week.

“That’s my intention at the moment,” Curtis said on a recent morning in New York, adding that he’d “probably” continue writing. “The message of this movie is enjoy every ordinary day of your life. I should listen to that message.”

About Time,” like all Curtis’ stories, tells the tale of a young lad (Domhnall Gleeson) enamored with a fair lady (Rachel McAdams). But there’s a twist. Our hero can travel back in time to fix his awkward romantic foibles, a trick he learned from his dad (Bill Nighy).
