Product Description

At the age of 21, Tim is told an incredible family secret by his father: all the men in his family have the ability to relive their past. He can revisit any moment in his life to try things differently until he gets them perfectly right. He decides to use his special new gift to win the heart of the beautiful Mary, but finds that the course of true love can be hilariously difficult - even with the ability to try, try and try again. About Time is a romantic comedy about love, life and time travel, which discovers that, in the end, making the most of life may not need time travel at all.

3.0 out of 5 stars Stick with it... it gets better 10 Feb 2014
By Danny
My biggest issue with the film was its opening 30minutes.. Poor Dialogue, contrived scenes and cut and paste Curtis scenarios.. However it does get better and shows more of a heart as time progresses..

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Good 7 Oct 2013
By GrahamG
(Based on a cinema viewing of the film)

So:- It's Richard Curtis: let's go through the checklist:

-The main protagonist will be a romantically inept posh British boy whose seemingly work-shy bohemian family are nonetheless inexplicably well off.

-The ultimate object of his affections will be a lovely American girl whose best friend / guardian is a rather hard and slightly trampy British girl.

-There will be a wider array of eccentric (borderline bonkers) characters.

-There will be more swearing than is ever necessary.

-All boxes ticked.

Can I be honest? I thought Four Weddings and Love Actually were just agreeable, not great, and I've always been irritated by how, in British films and Richard Curtis films in particular, swearing supposedly equals funny - so my expectations were not very high when we settled down in our seats about five minutes before the film started in the cinema - and then a group of mid to late teens trooped in and sat down in the seats in front of us, and I instinctively (and very unreasonably) assumed that this was not the sort of film which would suit them and that they would get bored and start fiddling with their mobile phones all the way through the film.

Well, I could not have been more wrong. Until the end credits rolled and the final notes of the end title music washed over us, we, they, and everyone else sat with attention riveted to the screen.

Before you continue reading, be aware that what follows contains a brief sketch of the film's premise and outlines the story set-up (but not the middle or the ending) for those who know absolutely nothing about it, but would like to know a little about it before choosing to buy it or see it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully done. 11 Feb 2014
By Polka
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Sci fi isn't my thing and I thought this was going to be a bit corny. But I was so wrong. It's a beautiful, charming film. It left me feeling incredibly uplifted and the characters are warm and likeable. It honestly is a great film. I'm ashamed for doubting Richard Curtis, I mean this is te man who brought up Notting Hill, Love Actually etc etc expect another fantastic rom-com, just with a sci fi twist!

4.0 out of 5 stars How Much Do I Love You 7 Feb 2014
A lovely film ,that took forever, for me, anyway to really latch onto my interest. A film from Richard Curtis, 'Notting Hill', a lot about love, family, living life the right way, everyday.

Tim Lake, played by Domhnall Gleeson, is living at home in Cornwall with his parents Bill Nighy, as dad and Lindsay Duncan, as his mother. Quite an eccentric family, including his sister Kit Kat, played by Lydia Wilson. He is just starting his professional life, he considers himself, "too tall, too skinny and too orange", but to most of us, just right. Tim is leaving for London when his father tells him a family secret: Once they turn 21, the men in the family acquire the ability to travel back in time, a power that comes with its own logic and rules. This does seem like overkill, but it is the one true thing that holds this film together, other than the exquisite acting. Tim can go back to moments in his own life and become more sexy, and more sensitive.

Tim meets the love of his life, Mary, played by Rachel McAdams, and off they go into life. The rest of the film seemed to overlong to me, rather sentimental, but quite lively, all in all. A good film for the family, over 15, and a good date night film. Any film with Bill Nighy is a good one. Rachel McAdams and, new to me, Domhhall Gleeson, carry the film quite well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stunning Cornwall 2 Mar 2014
Lovely gentle film for enjoying on a cold winters night snuggled in front of a fire. Enjoy the beautiful scenery, sea and coastline of Cornwall where much of it was filmed near Mevagissey. The beach is Bow or Vault beach and one you can have nearly to yourself even on a Bank Holiday because you have to walk to it down the cliff and has no facilities when you get there. Perfect! Watch and dream, and travel there yourself this summer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, it's about time Mr. Curtis... 20 Oct 2013
Let me be clear: I do not like Richard Curtis films. Let me be clearer still: About Time is an outstanding movie. Truly, genuinely, outstanding.

The truth is I had put off seeing this one for some time; I'd seen the best-jokes-in-the-trailer plug on primetime TV. My wife badgered me for several weeks telling me how she wanted to see it - when she mentioned the C-word I quietly swore not to get involved. The pestering continued and begrudgingly I relented and off we went. I'd had a rubbish day at work, bound to get worse still if old Richard had anything to say about it. Imagine my surprise 10 minutes in. I was enjoying it. I mean, really enjoying it. Let me explain...

The plot is pretty straightforward actually: it's about a boy growing up into early adulthood, getting married, having kids, losing family. The twist - presented immediately, and without any fuss whatsoever - is that he can travel in time to any point in his life and do things again, differently if he so wishes. Cue amusing first kisses, refining his first introduction to his girlfriend's parents, and repairing family issues. I know you might be yelling spoiler alert at this point, but trust me when I say the magic of this film lies in its execution - in the beautiful scripting and attention to characterisation. It purposefully doesn't raise the issue of morality with the whole idea of correcting all the mistakes you made without consequences, but it doesn't need to - the viewer can do that themselves.
