You would be forgiven for expecting a romantic comedy. Richard Curtis, the director of About Time, is a rom-com legend who wrote the screenplays for Notting Hill, both Bridget Jones movies, and (his masterpiece) Love Actually. Rachel McAdams, the female lead, is no stranger to the genre (Morning Glory, Wedding Crashers, and, though it's not a -com, The Notebook). The credentials are impeachable here, and that's before we even get to the ads: The overhead shot of two people lying in bed with the covers up to their necks is like the international sign for "rom-com." This has meet-cute written all over it.
