About Time (2013)

blu-ray.com
12 March 2014
  • Conclusion: About Time may wear its heart on its sleeve, but it does so with such conviction, commitment and sincerity that it never once struck me as syrupy or overly sentimental. Curtis' romantic comedy is more a poignantly amusing meditation on the truths of life, loss and love than anything remotely conventional, and its transition from charming sci-fi rom-com to something richer and more relevant is smooth and fluid as it is heartfelt and authentic.

About Time

BluRay Authority
12 February 2014
  • Excerpt: When it comes to romantic comedies, I have to admit that I wander into “eye rolling” territory often. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not jaded on love, but I’m also not a hopeless romantic. So when I see a movie that’s in my “to be reviewed” pile that fits this bill, it usually goes to the bottom of said pile.

About Time Blu-ray Review

  • Excerpt: The Film Writer/director Richard Curtis has a real knack for the rom-com. He seems to be one of the few filmmakers out there that can create something for this under-appreciated genre and not have it be total crap. If you're in need of evidence, please see Four Weddings and a Funeral , Bridget Jones's Diary , and most notably, Love Actually .

  • Conclusion: I absolutely adore 'About Time.' It's an under-appreciated gem, one that I'm determined to share with as many people as I can. The day it opened theatrically, I looked for showtimes in the areas where my siblings and parents live just so I could tell them when and where they could see it. I pushed more than a dozen friends and family members to it and not one of them hasn't loved 'About Time.

  • Conclusion: About Time is a good, sentimental time at the movies, and an excellent capper to Richard Curtis's career, if he really does retire. The Blu-ray looks and sounds excellent, though many of the bonus features are unfortunately quite shallow. Nonetheless, the movie is incentive enough. . What Do You Think?

About Time

Slant Magazine
31 December 2013
  • Excerpt: Time travel is hereditary rather than a scientific invention in writer-director Richard Curtis's About Time , a surprisingly thoughtful romantic comedy that shirks a great deal of reason and consequence in the name of love. As told to Tim Lake (Domnhall Gleeson, son of Brendan), the budding lawyer at the center of the film, by his aging father (Bill Nighy), the "butterfly effect" is null and void, but there are still some rules to time travel, such as being restricted to...

  • Excerpt: Not long after his 21st birthday, Tim Lake (Domhnall Gleeson) makes a very unusual discovery: By entering a dark space, like a closet or pantry, closing his eyes, and clenching his fists tight, he can return to any moment from his past. All of the Lake men possess this curious power, a time machine fueled and operated by their memories.

About Time

Cinema Blend
29 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Coming from the creator of Love Actually, Four Weddings and a Funeral and Notting Hill , you might understandably expect About Time to be a romantic comedy. After all, it is fronted by Rachel McAdams and Anna Karenina 's Domhnall Gleeson. Don't be fooled. This is not a movie about romance. It's about a far more encompassing idea of love, embracing lovers, friends, and family in a way that makes About Time a rich and wonderful narrative.

Empire Online
11 February 2014
  • Conclusion: More than just a time-travel rom-com, this is a movie that asks you questions and doesn't sugar-coat as many of the answers as you'd expect. Smart and sweet, funny and genuinely moving. Should probably come with a 'there's something in my eye' warning.
