Refreshing, Clean, SciFi Romance

I watched this movie without my kids. I found it wonderfully refreshing to find a movie that I can enjoy as an adult, without all the crass innuendo that is in so many "grownup" flicks - especially romances. For kids, I would say 12+ to be safe, but it really depends on the kid and parent - I'll detail the few things to be aware of below. First - things I liked: 1. Strong female character who is smart, loyal to family, confident, and not boy crazy. 2. The main character, a teen boy, is kind, in touch with healthy feelings, and becomes even more so throughout the movie. 3. Cool sci-fi plot - a spin on groundhog day - but much purer (safer for kids) than that movie - and the sci fi portion is explored a bit more. 4. The romance is primarily a friendship, and when it does change to a romance, the characters talk about their need to support each other as they go through hard things in life - this seems to be why they choose to be a couple - not to meet sexual desires - they do kiss and hold hands in the end, but there is no indication their physical relationship will go further than that. 5. Many good lessons learned - finding and treasuring the beautiful moments in life, thinking more about others and caring for them, accepting that life will not be perfect, but moving forward anyway. Both teens show love for parents and family from the beginning, and the boy grows in that more. Things to be aware of: 1. a scene or two where the boy talks to his friend, and there is repeated use of the term "getting laid" - but it is in the context of something that hasn't happened and seems like it will never happen - the boy also realizes that this is not really what he wants to spend his time seeking out. 2. The girl's mother dies of cancer and we see her saying good-bye and grieving. 3. One kissing scene, and one almost kissing scene

Beautiful movie

Even though the concept of time loop is dated but the story line of the movie is really good. From starting of the movie you are very clear about the lead but 30 ish min will change that perspective and broke you heart when the truth is revealed. Something I was very sure that it is going to be like one of those overrated teen romcom but it is much more then that. Must watch if you haven't watched it.
