In the scene where Carter, Lucy and Paige are trying to pick a movie at the theater, one of their choices is "The Age of Adeline" which wasn't released until 2015.
The mention of a film that would be released several years later is irrelevant. It was just a fictional title that coincidentally had a similar title to one used later. The 2015 film, which was announced in 2010, was actually titled The Age of Adaline with an "a" not an "e". The 2015 film was not based on a book, but was a new work. See more »

The movie is worth watching at least to watch Adam Brody in his first real movie role. While the plot was good and believable at parts, I just didn't get into it as much as I thought I would. Maybe it was because I expected Brody to be as witty as he is in The OC. Or perhaps it was because the plot didn't completely immerse me. The previous poster stated that this was the first movie they had seen with real emotion and if that's the case, I'm sorry for their lack of good movies. You want real human emotion? Watch Closer with Jude Law. THAT'S real human emotion. In The Land of Women is worth watching, but it's not a great date movie and I wish I would have rented it first.
