  1. Anderson is a hopeless romantic in a cynical world, and for a brief moment he makes the case that true love is the only power that can crack time and space.
  2. Fresh and flip and enjoyable, it's a sci-fi-tinged romantic comedy that I urge you to seek out.
  3. 75
    Essentially silliness crossed with science fiction. The actors make it fun to watch.
  4. 67
    Gleefully silly fun, with a few core concepts on the nature of time, space, and la-la-la-love thrown in for good measure. And who can resist a puffin, anyway?
  5. Reviewed by: Ed Park
    The leads smooth over the plot holes endemic to all 4D fables, making the movie more than mere déjà vu.
  6. D'Onofrio is a natural for the role of a romantic who just may be a freak. A highly physical actor, he ranges between sweetly awkward and a candidate for the kind of mental hospital shown in "Session 9."
  7. 20
    It's a warped kind of romantic comedy in which the whole is substantially less than the sum of the parts.

    I enjoyed the middle of the movie the most dreading the moment when something would ruin it for me and I'd end up hating the movie, but that never happened. for now, this is my favorite movie, i cant get sick of watching this. don't expect sex, drugs or violence. just cuteness. you have to watch it a few times to catch everything. like who the "father" on the phone really is, etc. Expand

    This is a quirky romantic movie and little far fetched but adorable. It was refreshing to see a movie that makes you laugh and your heart pitter-patter at the same time. Simply marvelous! Expand

    Unexpected and beautiful. It plays like a mobius strip but without all the usual **** that comes with a time based plot. Glad I came across this and would highly recommend it. It's unique and genuine. well-acted and without pretense. similar in feel to about time, which is another suberp time based romantic. Expand
