"The Time Traveler's Wife" is based on the best-selling book about a love that transcends time. Clare (Rachel McAdams) has been in love with Henry (Eric Bana) her entire life. She believes they are destined to be together, even though she never knows when they will be separated: Henry is a time traveler--cursed with a rare genetic anomaly that causes him to live his life on a shifting timeline, skipping back and forth through the years with no control. Despite the fact that Henry's travels force them apart with no warning, and never knowing when they will be reunited, Clare desperately tries to build a life with her one true love.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Yet where there should be heat, a cold wind blows.
Rotten: The emotions and crises feel pre-sanded, smooth to the point of blandness. The transitional disappearances are routine.
Fresh: I'm over the moon about this movie, which smooths out the psychological dissonances in Audrey Niffenegger's fine novel but is still an emotional workout.
Rotten: It's hard to live in stolen moments, but trying to find a few enjoyable ones in The Time Traveler's Wife is nearly impossible.
Makes The Notebook Look Like A Kid's Movie
The plot of this story is very epic, and it made me cry more than a movie ever has. It's not one of those perfect happly ever after movies, it is very harsh and real. Even true love has a nick in it's paint. Despiite all the turmoil of being with someone who has a condition like no other, the couples strives for happiness, and sometimes they get it. Right up untill the bitter end. If you're looking for a heart-felt movie to watch with your sweetheart, I strongly suggest this one.
This movie was flat-out fantastic. I loved Rachel McAdams role as a confused but madly in love woman struggling through her emotions and a marriage with a man who can't promise to always be there. It's heart-warming and heart-wrenching with parts that give you shivers of joy and parts where you bawl your eyes out but that's the beauty of it; it portrays life in a twisted, more fictional way. Bravo to the writer of this book and the person who produced it.

This book was beautiful and creative and the movie does a disservice to the author. Eric Bana, who is normally a fine actor, was terrible in this movie! Rachel McAdams was the only saving grace. Please read the book instead!
