One of the very best romances EVER. This is on the top of my list for favorite movies.
Scenery is gorgeous. Music is unforgettable.
Seymour, Reeves and Plummer are excellent in their parts.
Just enjoy and don't dissect it. Don't listen to the negative reviews.... this movie is excellent.

Come for the unique and improbable plot. Stay for the chemistry between Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour. Return, year after year, for John Barry`s unforgettable score.

I love this genuine movie of Romance and Love with the beautiful Jane Seymour and Christopher Reeves, great matches for this movie. I also really like the acting performance of Christopher Plummer to go along.

Total disappointment.
Amateurish, entirely predictable.
A genuine waste of time.

If you want really good "time travel" video
see Richard Curtis's ABOUT TIME
or THE TIME TRAVELER'S WIFE, which is also an excellent book.

One of my favorite romances of all time. I love the chemistry between Jane Seymour and Christopher Reeves. I like to watch this film on cold, snowy days!

Rated 5/10.

This movie, which is much like ALL of Edgar Rice Burroughs work, has fantastical elements. Those elements push along a deeply emotionally satisfying and romantic plot. Jane Seymour and Christopher Reeve are beyond beautiful.

I remember seeing this in the theater when it came out and being thunderstruck by it.

I saw it again recently, and loved it all the more because I found my true love too. Back then I was a kid who didn't really believe in that sort of thing.

Enjoy what will become one of your romantic favorites.

Jane Seymour was so pretty back then, but she really couldn't save this film.

At the risk of giving away a film you shouldn't waste your time on, imagine someone laying on a bed squirming around thinking that if he concentrates hard enough on going back in time that he miraculously will. I mean, the level of suspension of disbelief required on this film is off the charts.

I figured that with so many people listing it as a good film on various film lists that there might be some artistic merit to it, but not really.

But if you keep reading you will see some people really, really like it. So if you enjoy sap and ridiculous plots, you might give it a go in spite of my review.

Elyse (referring to the gold watch): "It's beautiful. Where did you get it?"
Richard: "It was...given to me."
