A love story between father and son

The ads and reviews for this film are a little misleading: although the romantic relationship is highlighted initially, it gradually moves into the background and the story focuses on the love between a father and son, and that son and his own children. Due to his time traveling gift, Tim eventually has to choose between living in the past with his father, or moving forward with his young family. What a wonderful metaphor for the choices we all make between the past and the future, the known and the unknown, stability and risk. Great stuff to discuss with young teens, but beware: if you've recently lost a close relative this will be a heart-breaker.

Great feel-good movie

It was really good. It was funny and had a good storyline. I liked most of the characters. The characters did talk about sex a lot and there was some bad language in it. Some of the characters made comments that were inappropriate and I felt were unnecessary, but overall, it was a good movie.

Heart warming

This movie is so sweet and adorable. It has great messages and a nice story line. Me and my 13 year old daughter watched it together and loved it. I really recommend it!
