About Time None stars

About Time movie poster

Long ago, Head & Shoulders dandruff shampoo pitched itself with the tagline, "Because you never get a second chance to make a first impression." Guess again, chump! When he turns 21, Domhnall Gleeson discovers he can time travel. So he sets about shamelessly manipulating Rachel McAdams into falling in love with him. For starters, he gets to make that first impression over and over and over again until it's perfect. (Not only will he not have dandruff; he'll already know what she likes in the boudoir!) Maybe if your concept is high enough, it stops being creepy? 2013.

This movie is not currently in theaters.

Sounds like a bad ripoff of Ground Hog Day. Rent Ground Hog Day with Bill Murray. It's a better story and funnier as well as charming.

Dismissive comparisons to Groundhog Day were inevitable, making those comparisons all the more tedious, but this is not Groundhog Day redux. The earlier film executed on its premise meticulously, whereas this incarnation is less about the mechanics and more about the heart, which makes it neither better nor worse. Philosophically speaking, what distinguishes this film from its predecessor is the idea of learning how to get it right the first time rather than getting it right eventually.
