Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams play a married couple with an unusual problem: he has a "genetic anomaly" which keeps yanking him into the near future or past for short periods before depositing him back in his own timestream.

Adapted from Audrey Niffenegger's bestseller, this comic romance deals playfully with the inherent paradoxes and ironies of time travel, so that when it turns into a full-on weepy about the brevity of life and the length of memory, it has, at least, earnt the right to do so.
