Director: Richard Curtis
Studio: Universal Pictures
Rated: R (For language and some sexual content)
The old saying goes that when something works it just works. Sometimes there are no words needed. This saying is suicide for a critic when he see's something that just works and then has to go home and write a review explaining why something works. I feel that while there are a few things to say about Richard Curtis's “About Time” the words can almost be considered pointless. How do I even describe how this movie works? I guess I could tell you it's about a young British man named Tim (Domhnall Gleeson) who falls in love with an American girl named Mary (Rachel McAdams). Yeah, I guess the movies about that. Nothing too special there. I guess I could also mention that Tim has the ability to travel through time, but I fear that would just make this sound silly (though, I suppose, to a certain extent it probably is).
Parents, there is some mild strong language and minor sexuality. No nudity or anything too graphic though. Recommended for ages 15 and up.
