a really poor film in every aspect. the whole premise is silly and there really isn’t any logic to it. in a film like time machine or back to the future there is a time traveling logic that makes some sense. this film just makes shit up.
then there’s the whole romance element which is bizarre at best and pedophilic at worst. the guy travels through time and meets his future wife when she’s like 8 years old. he’s 40+ at this point, mind you. he visits her often while she is growing up and she always leaves out her dad’s clothes for him (when he travels through time he comes through naked). there’s a lot of this oedipal stuff throughout the film. it’s ripe for feminist vitriol, but i haven’t heard any buzz against it so far.
beyond those two major problems, the film is just poorly made and executed. mcadams and bana both have talent and it is utterly wasted here. avoid this one like the plague.Watched in theater
