Not necessarily "Romcoms" that's a generalisation but Romance movies more along the lines of these that gave off similar vibes…
The Time Traveler's Wife
Due to a genetic disorder, handsome librarian Henry DeTamble involuntarily zips through time, appearing at various moments in the life of his true love, the beautiful artist Clare Abshire.
feeling very at peace with my inner woman right now.
This film may as well have taken a shit on the original novel.
Rachel McAdams is always great in every role shes in and its always a pleasure to watch her movies, but unfortunately this time it was not enough to make me enjoy the film. The only good thing about The Time Travelers Wife was McAdams performance because the rest of the movie was just a chaotic mess. It was very difficult to follow the logic of every sequence. I dont have a problem with non-linear films (I am a huge fan of the Lost series so this is not an issue for me) but I found this movie too distracting with so many cuts back and forth. For example Rachel s character has met Eric Bana several times before he actually…
As a concept, The Time Traveler's Wife is an interesting idea that could be taken in several different directions. But movies can't get by just on the concept, and this one simply doesn't come together.
Even from the very beginning, it's clear that The Time Traveler's Wife is a movie without much effort being put into its production. The opening scenes don't feel well constructed or written, and it never really gets better from there. The story is fairly aimless, jumping from focus to focus just like its protagonist jumps through time. The script isn't terrible, but is quite bland, never earning its attempts at emotional moments and never finding any deeper meaning for any of its characters.

Task # 3: A film featuring time travel
How do you build a life with someone who literally constantly disappears? This is the thing Clare struggles with in “The Time Traveler’s Wife”. When she is a little girl, Clare meets Henry. He tells her that he travels through time. From that moment on Clare is impressed by Henry, writes down every date she meets him in her diary and she is sure Henry is her dream guy. When she is in her twenties, she meets Henry again in a library. At that point, Henry doesn’t recognize her. The Henry that was visiting young Clare was an older version.…
This glossy adaptation of Audrey Niffenegger’s staggeringly popular 2003 sci-fi romance takes a couple of ludicrous liberties and botches the central relationship, but has a handful of hugely persuasive moments all the same.
It tells the cyclical, ingeniously-conceived story of time-traveller Henry (Eric Banana) and the titular character, Clare (Rachel McAdams). She meets him for the first time when she is six and he is 38; he meets her for the first time when he is 28 and she is 20. And, as in the book, they fall in love, quarrel, search for a cure and try to conceive (cue the most unrealistic fake tummy of all time: it looks like a papier mache-covered balloon, then coloured in with a…
rewatched this. and i have to say its one of my favourite movies of all time. not even my guilty pleasure. I want to read the book now. I loved getting references as I was younger when I watched it!
i wish i could be time traveler to see people that i missed them ..
Meh... Its okay at best.
wheres the DNF tag on here? this was so boring
It was a depressing love story. It didn't matter what kind of happy ending it had, the main character still lost her husband.
A raging disappointment after reading the novel. It removes anything dark and thoughtful from the book and the product is something fluffy and trite. Eric Bana delivers all his lines in a very weirdly cheesy fashion. Rachel McAdams does the best she can with what they gave her but the script is only so so.
If you liked the book, skip this. If you're interested in watching this, read the book instead.
The book my wife describes sounds much better than the sweeping cheesefest this movie is
I can't believe I loved the book. I see so many flaws with the time travelling. Although, I think I've known before, I chose too ignore the plot holes for the book ending. It's disappointing they didn't end the movie the way the book ended. Book ending is better and realistic.
The romance is messed up, too. She was a child when the met. He was old enough to be his dad. It was kinda gross. The movie made it seem like Clare was lusting for Henry since she was 6yrs old. If I remember correctly from the book, Clare had a boyfriend when she was 18. And that hint, hint with Gomez even when Clare is with Henry.
Despite its awfl time travel laws, the book is still better since it explored more about the characters. I guess you can't ask that in a movie since they have limited screen time. I just think it could've been executed better.
