Having read the book first I must admit that this movie does an excellent job of taking all the relevent aspects of the book and adapting it for the movie.      We have a time traveler, Henry, (played by Eric Bana) who can go back in time many times to the same place and event without disrupting history.  The first time we see him, he is a small child in a car driven by his mother.  The car is about to crash when Henry is transported, then he returns to the same area …

   I did not read the book and I knew next to nothing about the film plot when sitting down to view this film. But I'd heard the title a thousand times and thought it sounded interesting. I tend to multi-task when I watch films at home so this movie viewing session was not an exception. About 20 minutes into the film I asked my husband if folding laundry was keeping me from getting what was going on. He said that the movie was confusing and laundry folding was not the problem.   …

Pretty well structured film about love, time travel, romance and the theme of commitment. This is more a story about relationships, trust and faith in each other; isn't exactly a sci-fi film, but more of a slice of life and how we cope and make the best of opportunities and problems. McAdams and Bana make beautiful chemistry together. Indeed worth a watch and an excellent romantic drama for all "time".

THE TIME TRAVELER'S WIFE is a diversion. At times what works well in a novel doesn't translate to the screen: the magic of the reader's imagination can be more powerful than the visualization of a screenwriter and director. Such is the case of Audrey Niffenegger's novel - an escape into a world of the unknown (time traveling) that played well on the page largely due to the writing skill of the author. Bruce Joel Rubin's screenplay makes a mighty attempt to make visual the imaginary magic of the …

Based on a novel by Audrey Niffenegger, this sci-fi/romance/drama movie explores the problems a couple experiences when one of them (Henry, played excellently by Eric Bana) disappears without warning for varying periods of time, while Claire (the radiant Rachel McAdams) deals with life and waits for his return.       The thing is, not only is Henry gone, but he's also gone in time, and the Henry that returns may not be the same age as the Henry who left. To compound it, he has …

Some of the best movies occur when you blend multiple genres together. For example, Star Wars is not really purely sci-fi, but a blend of sci-fi, western, adventure, and drama. Likewise, the Pirates of the Caribbean movies are a blend of fantasy, action, romance, suspense and comedy. This is also the case with The Time Traveler's Wife. Part romance, part drama and part suspense, and overlaid on a fantasy context; this is another great movie based on a book. The plot is simple enough; Eric Bana plays …

Watched this on the flight. It's interesting how the guy always comes back naked! Unique story, another one of those time travel stories!
