Clare has been in love with Henry her entire life.

I didn’t care for this movie. As much as I like Eric Bana, this was not his movie. The two main characters have very little chemistry, which doesn't do well for a rom-com. Also so many questions and holes in this movie makes it nothing special. If you are looking for a rom-com with time travel in it, watch “About Time”, also with Rachel McAdams, now that is a good movie.

This movie is all about the romance and nothing about the science fiction. If you can accept that premise and perhaps suspend a little belief for ninety minutes (surely not much to ask?) then the rewards are remarkable. If it still doesn't work for you, try watching with a woman for a whole new perspective.

Although an intriguing idea, this film just came across as futile and a little creepy. "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" was a little better but I'd recommend the more hopeful "About Time" over either of those.

A nice movie to put faces to the characters, (he's much better looking than I originally pictured him!) but the book was better. (no surprises there!)

Is it possible to unborrow a DVD? Well, I suppose you could use this movie as a drinking game: every time there is a vasectomy reversal / time travel incident ...

spoiler alert...i discuss the whole movie......I love this movie, have seen it multiple times, and highly recommend it to anyone who wants to watch a romantic drama with the added twist of time travel. All relationships have stress and this one is no different, the stress (time travel) is out of the ordinary but what really matters is their deep love for each other. The idea that he can even come back and visit, after his own death made the bitter sweet ending a little easier to endure. Well cast, well acted, and overall a very well done movie.

A wonderful movie! Not entirely true to the book (but what movie is), if you watch the special features though it does a remarkable job explaining what changes or differences there are and why. Can't say enough about it. It really was a fantastic movie and did much justice to the book.

something is not right there, It doesn't make any feeling. I think something in the story is missing.What is his goal as a time traveler?

Henry DeTamble: I never wanted to have anything in my life that I couldn't stand losing. But it's too late for that. It's not because you're beautiful and smart. I don't feel alone anymore. Will you marry me?
Clare Abshire: No. I didn't mean that. I just wanted to try it, to say it, to assert my own sense of free will, but my free will wants you.
Henry DeTamble: So it's a yes?
Clare Abshire: Yes, of course.
