I know one of the other reviews commented that it moved at a brisk pace but I have to disagree; there are just too many scenes that are dragged out. It's a two hour movie that could have been cut by a half an hour. Plot was nothing to write home about; nothing really happens that wouldn't have happened in a standard romance. There definitely wasn't any mind boggling concepts of time travel. Many missed opportunities that the time travel concept lends itself to. I did like the female lead, she definitely carried the movie; the male lead character was very shy, very common in real life but rather boring in a movie. This movie reminds me of a Saturday afternoon special movie.
If you pass on this movie your life would be no worse off.
