Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good The best thing about The Time Traveler's Wife is that the romance feels organic rather than manufactured.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average The warmth of the actors makes it surprisingly tender, considering the premise that is blatantly absurd.

USA Today Full Review
Average The Time Traveler's Wife is a slog rather than the sweeping romance it aspires to be.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 237 moviegoers:
TEENS:The males and especially the females enjoyed "The Time Traveler's Wife" very much. Three-quarters, or more, loved it, rating it "Very Good," or higher. Most of the remaining reviews are average with a few below average (mostly males).
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:A few of the males loved it, but most rated it average to above average. For this type of movie, I would say these are very good reviews. Females rated it much higher. Half of them loved it with most of the rest rating it above average. A few were disappointed.
ADULTS:The male reviews are very good. Three-quarters of them loved it. The remaining quarter are divided between average and below average. The female reviews are almost identical to the male reviews.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Clare (Rachel McAdams) has been in love with Henry (Eric Bana) her entire life. She believes they are destined to be together, even though she never knows when they will be separated: Henry is a time traveler—cursed with a rare genetic anomaly that causes him to live his life on a shifting timeline, skipping back and forth through the years with no control. Despite the fact that Henry's travels force them apart with no warning, and never knowing when they will be reunited, Clare desperately tries to build a life with her one true love.
