    This movie was terrible in comparison to the book. The book was so much more romantic. They cut the best parts out of the story, in regards to the movie. The details were all off also, especially about the daughter and the way she was supposed to look like... Urgh what a disappointment.

  1. German-born director Robert Schwentke ("Flightplan") keep things moving briskly enough so that the leaps in time mostly obscure the leaps in logic.

    May not make a lick of sense, but it does make for fairly irresistible nonsense.

    Will disappoint anyone looking for transport from a movie--being a time traveler's wife, it turns out, is mostly a drag.
