If it isn't broke.....,
This review is from: About Time [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
So, Richard Curtis's newest film......
Well it sounds great on paper. Time travel, romantic mishaps, great cast.
It's richard Curtis so you sort of know what you are going to get and its comfortable to know that you wont get anything too 'out there'.
It has a Funeral, a Wedding, A terminally ill relative, children, new love, lost love, pretty girls, awkward girls etc.
and yes, everyone seems to be pretty well off and can afford to do whatever they like whenever they like.....hey, its a film so its allowed.
The time travel bit is probably the most problamatic as the 'rules' that apply seem to be broke almost all the time.
It's not a bad film, but its not fantastic either. I think Curtis was trying to do a Richard curtis mixed with Mike Leigh type film and came off with neither, just a bit of a wishy washy middle gound.
