Synopsis from DVD Cover:
Lose yourself in timeless love with this gloriously romantic story of the journey of two hearts. Artist Clare Abshire (Rachel McAdams of The Notebook) shares a deep emotional bond with Henry De Tamble (Eric Bana of The Other Boleyn Girl), a handsome librarian who travels involuntarily through time. Knowing they can be separated without warning, Clare and Henry treasure the moments they have together, imbuing them with the yearning and passion of two people imprisoned by time - and set free by love. Based on the #1 bestseller, The Time Traveler's Wife weaves together destiny and devotion, past and future to turn an extraordinary love into an extraordinary love story.

Quick Review:
When I saw the commercials for "The Time Traveler's Wife," and especially when I heard the main character was a time traveler because of a genetic anomaly, I made lots of fun. I'm not much with the romantic chickie flick, and I was prepared to mock this one all the way through. Then I started watching, and there I was, sucked in to a vaguely confusing hodge-podge of love, tragedy, and pseudo-sci-fi. And I liked it.

To try and explain this thing chronologically would be downright silly, so here's the general idea. Henry DeTamble (Eric Bana) learns at an early age that there's something weird in his DNA that makes him skip unexpectedly through time, arriving each time at a new destination naked and unaware of where he has landed. Along the way, he meets and falls in love with Clare Abshire (Rachel McAdams), and the two share a love story that's full of challenges, to say the least, but that spans the test of time.

Again, I went in expecting a typical cheesy weeper, but what I came away with was a thoroughly engrossing fairytale that's center is simply the depth and acceptance that accompanies true love. Both Bana and McAdams are so committed to making this all a plausibility and so darn likeable that in a story that must rely on its own ability to make its audience disregard all logic and accept everything in the name of story, we simply DO. The whole how and why of the time travel isn't ever a major sticking point, and though there are a few explanations, it's never about hard and fast rules of what MUST happen-it's more a portrait of how love can transcend even the most impossible circumstances and endure things with normalcy that most people would see as cause for screaming. It's definitely a plus that this isn't a sci-fi tale, because by allowing the characters to react to the idea of time travel as if it's just another thing that mostly sucks, we get a chance to experience Clare and Henry's story right along with them.

This is actually a movie I would buy, mainly to see what bits of the order I didn't catch on to in the first place, but it doesn't offer much as far as Extras go. "The Time Traveler's Wife: Love Beyond Words" is all we get, and it's a featurette about adapting the book to the screenplay. It's a cool watch, but it's just not much, especially when a commentary or even interviews would have been nice.

In Conclusion:
Don't dismiss this as just another chick flick-yes, it's a romance, but it's so much more, and quite possibly one of the best time travel films I've seen due to its acceptance of the phenomenon as something that just is.
