5.0 out of 5 stars Deep Questions Oct. 15 2010
By avgvstvs - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The thing I love the most about this movie is that it constantly forces you to ask deep questions... about our society and deeper philosophy as well.

The interplay with Oona's younger half-brother and his "soulmate" is downright reminiscent of an arranged marriage. It also makes a commentary that cuts both ways across science and religion: because a "scientific" timer tells you when you meet your "one true soulmate," do we accept this? Can a countdown REALLY tell you this? The question cuts back the other way where you watch as people share this almost devotional faith to the TiMER units themselves; "How can you find love without a TiMER?" Why would you have faith in such an object?

Further, it allows us to ask questions about certain kinds of products and their consequences on society; if you watch how the people in the world of the movie act, talk, and react with all things "TiMER," it gives you insight into how far-reaching an simple idea can possibly blossom.

Not quite as comedic as I was expecting, but this movie is worth its weight in the story itself (philosophy aside.) It's a versatile movie, can be taken either deeply or routinely, and has excellent performances throughout.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly Charming April 27 2010
By Book Lover - Published on Amazon.com
I'm pretty sure that the only reason this film didn't get wide-spread theatrical distribution is because of the (almost) no-name cast, because everything else about it was fantastic. The combination of great acting, well-drawn and complex characters, and high-concept plot resulted in an adorable, charming and engaging movie. Perfect for a night in. Kudos to the director. I hope he does more like it... :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Quirky, Well Thought Out Love Story May 2 2010
By B. Kester - Published on Amazon.com

I gather this film was begun by the basic premise of the timers, which (without giving anything away) tell the owners when they will meet the love of their lives. The movie takes this idea and really explores many of the ins and outs of the concept (as it has become well accepted and fairly integrated into everyday live) and how it affects different people in regards to love. I found the writing to be quite splendid and I laughed out loud multiple times - a result of the combination of great writing and excellent delivery.

What a great cast!

I cannot speak much of the cinematography or music of the film as I was too wrapped up in the story to notice!

My only complaint was that I felt the buildup to and the ending to be predictable. But, I still enjoyed it to the end. It's nice to see solid films like this emerge in the terribly boring Remake Mania overtaking American cinema these days.

5.0 out of 5 stars So Glad I Watched This Film May 7 2010
By kevrev - Published on Amazon.com

I'm sure I won't do the movie justice with this little review but I had to add my two cents by saying I thoroughly enjoyed it. Great acting, solid script, though an indy it didn't feel low budget to me -- I recommend seeing this film! (Be aware it fully deserves it's R rating for language but if that doesn't distract you from enjoying a good movie then it's definitely worth watching.)

I'll admit I have an affinity for 'What If?' movies like this. Ones that tell stories which start off with a slightly unrealistic premise in order to make us explore a concept that deserves to be pulled from the back of our collective subconscious so we can examine it's full implications. Other examples that spring to mind are Sliding Doors, The Truman Show, Twilight of the Golds, and (I would add) Groundhogs Day.

So give your 'willing suspension of disbelief' a little more chain to run around the yard and discover what this great romantic movie has to say.

5.0 out of 5 stars I haven't laughed so hard in ages! April 24 2010
By Shannon Okey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I had the good luck to see this movie at the Cleveland International Film Festival recently, and I am so pleased that I did -- it was funny, well-written, brilliantly acted (I swear Emma Caulfield is one of the greatest "face" actors working today, she can put so much across with just one look!) and delightful. I hope it gets a broader release in theatres, because compared to the other movies out there right now, it's vastly superior.

The premise is simple -- what if a clock could count down to the moment you meet your soul mate? But it isn't science fiction-y, and even though you feel for what the main character is going through (her timer is one of a handful that doesn't work correctly, and she keeps ending up with the wrong guys again and again), it isn't a "chick flick" either. It's sensitive, slightly dark at times (her sister works in a retirement community -- there are some great one-liners), but overall, a wonderful movie.
