| Cute but dumb
Liev Schreiber (badly used and miscast) travels from NYC 2002 to NYC 1862 (the how and why are never really explained). While coming back he accidentally brings a 19th century duke Leopold (Hugh Jackman) with him. Leopold meets Kate (Meg Ryan) and...well, you can figure it out from there.

The movie looks beautiful, is VERY romantic and Jackman is incredibly handsome, sexy, funny...God, those eyes of his...but this movie is really dumb. There are some plot turns that are unbelievable (the time travel is never explained; Jackman saves Ryan's purse from a mugger on horseback--literally; Jackman gets used to the 21st century way too quickly; do New Yorkers always leave their windows open so someone can clamber in off the fire escape?). Also Ryan has played this part once too often--she's getting too old and (sadly) she looks it. However, Breckin Meyer is very good and funny as her brother.

The only reason to see the movie is Jackman--he's just great. And it IS cute. So, it's worth seeing.
