    The Hollywood Reporter Stephen Dalton

    There are just enough laugh-out-loud moments here to excuse the lurches into shameless, tear-jerking sentimentality.

    Variety Leslie Felperin

    Curtis ends up making a virtue out of the narrative’s episodic quality, a tendency that’s been criticized in his previous work; the film, like life, is just one damn thing after another, and that’s really the rather lovely point.

    What results is amusing, gently entertaining and might induce a tear or two.

    Entertainment Weekly Owen Gleiberman

    Gleeson and McAdams make a touching, lifelike couple, but by the time the movie starts telling us to live each day as if we were going back and doing it all over again, you may feel Curtis has mistaken hokum for wisdom.

    Enjoy the love in your life, and don't squander it: That's all Curtis is selling here, really. With Gleeson and McAdams at the forefront, About Time has a beguiling pair of rom-com miracle workers helping him close the sale.

Tissues please by EdMay3
This is an amazing movie. It's a love story, it's a drama, it's a father / son movie, it's a comedy and more. Definitely an all time favorite of mine.

Whitty by jariahoward
It was a cute movie. I liked how the guy was able to jump back in time. He really loved his father and tried to keep him around although he was running out of time due to the illness. A little dry at times. It was So-so
