Storyline

Dr. Stern, a clinical psychologist, leads a well ordered life, self-contained, neat, precise, and scheduled. We watch his appointments with eight patients, as he asks questions, listens, and advises them that all will improve in due time. Then, he gets a call from an oncologist who gives him very bad news. Suddenly, "in due time" becomes "right now": Stern's therapy methods change, and so do the fortunes of his patients. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Dead pan humor with a yuk or two but no more.
9 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Our Time Is Up is a rapid fire dead pan comedy that eventually runs out of bullets in its brief running time. Successful, self important psychologist Dr. Stern leads an orderly life dispassionately dispensing paint by the numbers observations to clients of varying hang-ups. When health issues arise Stern does a complete one-eighty with his practice and methodology.

By means of syntax Time starts sharp and remains so with seamless dialog transitions between client sessions that are amusingly revealing in character development. The clients never get beyond the clichés they wear though and by second and third sessions are out of fashion as this film stumbles to its feel good ending, the irony all but beaten out of it.
