At first I was confused at why such a pretty young would not have a single friend in high school. But then I soon figured out why. Jade Butterfield (played by Gabriella Wilde) is just completely void of personality. I just found her so bland.
The other problem I had with the movie was the fact that she was so willing to throw away college for this guy. I get this guy was supposed to be her true love and she wanted to spend every minute with him, but I just didn't feel like it sent a very good message. Plus, I can't be totally convinced what they had was true love. They were together for like 2 months. At the most. Relationships are still in the "honeymoon" phase then.
My third problem with this movie, was there was some eye-rolling worthy dialogue in the film.
Yeah....I just wouldnt recommend this.

Thought he was quite charming. And I also liked Rachel McAdams, but thought their chemistry could have been better. I was also glad that it didn't feel exactly like Rachel McAdams other time-traveling movie (The time traveler's wife). In this one he has control of when he can go back. She is not aware of his powers. In this one, he can only go back....not forward.
Anyway, I did like it....but its not a movie to put on right before bed.

They had magic chemistry together. They were very believable as a couple in love. And I thought Jean played a tortured soul well. Besides the dog, I just didn't care or much else.

However, its not my favourite Disney/Pixar film. It made me laugh at times. But for the most part, I found the bits with the dogs highly stupid. It really took detracted from the film I thought.
That being said, I really loved all the animation. And I liked the characters for the most part. I was also really touched by the scene where Carl looks through Ellie's adventure book and finds out they she included pictures of their married life as her "adventure". It was sweet.

It will not through you for a loop. That being said, its still a pretty enjoyable film. The leads are funny. I especially really loved Miles Teller. I definitely want to see more stuff he is in. I thought Imogen Poots was totally adorable.

I wish she would have gotten an oscar nomination. Very deserving. Matthias Scoenaerts was also pretty good. I really felt for him when he also lost his son. He wasn't always such a good guy, but you could tell that he was trying. And they both had good chemistry. Very different people, but they complimented each other nicely. It was a pretty food film and worth a watch.
