  10. 10. Reviews ‘After dominating the landscape of British middle-of-the-road romcoms, Notting Hill and Four Weddings writer Richard Curtis returns with just his third film as director. Fortunately, About Time is more coherent and less stick-your-fingers-down-your-throat than either of its predecessors, Love Actually or The Boat That Rocked. Yes, it’s a romance, but one that feels a little more soulful.’ Total Film ‘In the end, it's a charmer. For those of you who have liked Curtis' previous rom-coms, come along for a lovely joyride...’ Elias Savanda ‘Brilliantly written and well directed by Curtis (this is his third film behind the camera), "About Time" is just another jewel in his crown as the reigning romantic comedy king.’ Michael Smith ‘About Time is a solid tale about love, loss, and family with great performances - that leans on a compelling but sometimes problematic time-travel premise.’ Ben Kendrick
