Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: I can't believe that even the most rabid chick-flick masochists wouldn't gag on it.
Rotten: I couldn't spoil the plot if I wanted to, since I have no idea how it all ties together.
Rotten: I was hot to trot for the exit halfway through, but a dogged sense of duty kept me stuck in an endless present.
Rotten: Bullock's decision to play Kate as a morose kill-joy is particularly inexplicable. She's getting letters from some hot architect through a hole in the time-space continuum, and yet her expression remains impassive, her voice flat, her outlook maudlin.
Love this movie!
This is a great love story eventhough people may be confused about the time that Kate and Alex live. They live 2 years apart. It simply like this: Kate's past is Alex's present. Since I am a big fan of Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeve, this is just another great movie that they play lovers after Speed.
A must see movie
I wasn't sure about the movie, and decided to watch it. I was amazed how well done this movie was. It was interesting how the two characters lived two years apart, and yet had such a deep connection. I especially liked the end how they were able to see each other.
Ought to be terrible
This movie ought to be terrible, but it has a kind of charm, both the setting and Sandra Bullock's performance, mostly. The time scenario doesn't quite make sense, it requires that history shift over the same terrain (2004-2006) in a way that doesn't quite hang together.
