I never thought a movie about a guy (Eric Bana) trying to maintain a marriage while involuntarily time-traveling could possibly be worth squat. The commercials for The Time Traveler’s Wife were making me gag, so I didn’t sit down for the movie with a big bag of faith resting on my lap: It looked like it was going to be stupid. Well, it is stupid, but it’s the good kind of stupid. A cast of fine actors lock themselves into that stupid premise, and the results are charming, sometimes funny—and even a little bit heartbreaking. Bana and Rachel McAdams make for a good screen couple as they deal with time travel and the burden it puts on a relationship. I know that sounds ridiculous, and it is, but the performers make it work.

Colorado Springs Independent Quality time Will The Time Traveler's Wife turn out to be the loveliest adaptation of a novel ever to get boos from fans of the book? Could be. by MaryAnn Johanson 08/13/2009

Charleston City Paper The Time Traveler's Wife will linger in your mind Will The Time Traveler's Wife turn out to be the loveliest adaptation of a novel ever to get the biggest boos from diehard fans of the book? Could be. The ending, for one, is different, but it's not a lot different. In fact, the altered ending still makes sense emotionally. I teared up — oh yes I did — and isn't that the point? Of course, some will still scream, "Oh my God, they ruined the book!" But like I said, fans of Audrey Niffenegger's novel need not worry. Hollywood didn't ruin the story, I promise. by MaryAnn Johanson 08/12/2009
