User Reviews

 
This is a "Chick Flick" that guys can appreciate.

I caught this movie (as This Time Forever) in a hotel room. It was late and I couldn't sleep. Due to the hour, I didn't expect much. Boy, was I wrong! This flick caught my attention and held it from start to finish. Love stories are normally not my thing but this one was different. There is nothing special about the movie. The interaction of the characters seemed to touch the right buttons for me. If you get the chance, watch it. Its worth the rental fee.
