I'll admit right off the bat that I am biased because I read and loved the book 'The Time Traveler's Wife'. So, going into the movie my expectations were high. And, my expectations were crushed without remorse by this I'll admit right off the bat that I am biased because I read and loved the book 'The Time Traveler's Wife'. So, going into the movie my expectations were high. And, my expectations were crushed without remorse by this horrid film. The only saving grace was Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana as lead characters. Both fabulous actors, bound to draw attention. However, the film lacked character depth and development. I felt no connection with the love story that was supposed to be unfolding before my eyes. And, to my complete dismay, the best parts of the book were left out or completely changed! The screenwriters took a beautifully written novel, and trashed every wonderful thing about it. Too bad. My recommendation: Save your money. Expand

This movie was so wack! The previewa make it seem like it was some lovely romantic story but in reality it was just plain confusing. I sat there waiting for Eric Bana's to die and I was going to shoot myself if I saw his ass one more This movie was so wack! The previewa make it seem like it was some lovely romantic story but in reality it was just plain confusing. I sat there waiting for Eric Bana's to die and I was going to shoot myself if I saw his ass one more time in this movie..And to top it off, he gets killed by a bullet that was meant for a deer..WOW!!! This movie was so dumb, stupid, and confusing! I do not recommend seeing this to anyone!!! Expand

I enjoy good movies weather they are chick flicks or horror films. Since this was based upon a book I came in with high hopes, but sadly enough this film made absolutely no sense at all. It was purposefully manipulative to your emotions, and I enjoy good movies weather they are chick flicks or horror films. Since this was based upon a book I came in with high hopes, but sadly enough this film made absolutely no sense at all. It was purposefully manipulative to your emotions, and had nothing to really bight your teeth into. This film made me very angry, why would anyone make this movie it sucks. In the sea of good romantic movies out there this one is a rock at the bottom of the Marianas trench. Expand

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 wasThis movie was terrible in comparison to the book. The book was so much more romantic.

Urgh what a disappointment. Expand
