| Extraordinary movie.
What an amazing movie. When I see the cast and the title, I immediately thought of a romantic cliché, with full of known plot twists, and et cetera. Rachel McAdams is known for her romantic movies, but this was just more and more than that.

About Time was one of the greatest movies I have ever seen. I was immediately captured, and the cast is so brilliant, I believed every single line. Thank you for this film, I am still under the influence of this movie. It is about life, in the most raw way. How life should be lived, and how we should see the world, as it is.

Extraordinary movie. Magnificent.

Goofs

Tim's father tells him that he is unable to travel back in time to before the birth of his children because doing anything slightly differently would result in a different sperm at a different moment, resulting in a different child. However, this means that Tim would be unable to travel back past the conception of his children, not their births.

This entry is not a valid "Goof". The changes made to sperm producing "Girl Posy" mattered, as Tim had already loved and "knew" Posy. She had a history and personality that Tim was not willing to change. Tim visiting his father before the 3rd child's birth does not negate the reliance of that plot point, though. Tim's last visit with his Dad takes place before #3's birth. As such there is no ingrained gender or personality for Tim to fear losing. Yes, it could alter the baby, but not in any way noticeable to Tim.
