This is my 3466th Review

Thanks to Heather of the MILFCast for this recommendation.

Number of Times Seen – 1 (22 Oct 2017)

Brief Synopsis –A woman seeking a long lasting and real relationship meets a man who claims he’s from the future.

My Take on it – When Heather recommended this film, it realky took me by surprise because I never really could imagine Vincent D’onofrio in a romantic comedy let alone opposite Marisa Tomei.

Their chemistry here is quite quirky but that actually helps since this film is quite unique and different from most films of the genre.

It doesn’t follow the normal formulaic aspects of a rom-com and the added sci-fi elements also make things extremely interesting to watch unfold since you really dont know what to expect along the way.

Really loved how they keep certain aspects of the film completely ambiguous because it gives us so much to ponder long after the credits roll.

Bottom Line – Great romance film because it is quite unique and different from all the rest and diesnt completely follow the normal formulatic structure of the genre that we all know and love. The sci-fi aspects give the main premise such a spin that it helps make this so much more intriguing because you dont know what to expect. The chemistry between Tomei and D’onofrio works because it’s so quirky as it is meant to be.  Loved the way that numerous aspects of the storyline are left ambiguous which gives us so much to ponder for a long time after the credits roll. Recommended!

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Near the end of the movie’s theatrical run the director of a science fiction film festival contacted the distributor for a copy of the movie. According to the festival’s director, there was a long pause on the other end and the person at the distributor said, “Hmm. Science fiction. Maybe if we had sold it that way…” (From IMDB)

Rating – Globe Worthy
