If you fancy yourself to be something of a hopeless romantic who really enjoys watching a love story that is preposterous beyond belief - Then - "Somewhere In Time" is just the picture to satisfy your tastes.

Released back in 1980 - This film barely makes up for its ridiculous plot-line of time travel by casting 2 very good-looking actors, Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour, in the lead roles.

Ah, yes! - The things we do for love.

IMO - This 1980 Chick Flick really should've come with a very stern warning advising all viewers that this intense tale of obsession was only meant for the hopeless romantic and that everyone else should watch it (with extreme caution) at their own risk.

Surprisingly written by SyFy novelist, Richard Matheson (of "I Am Legend" fame) - Somewhere In Time's biggest drawback was its repeatedly overwrought soundtrack music which was amplified so loudly at times that it became downright irritating, and, yes, intolerable.

But - On the other hand - Some of this film's location shooting on picturesque Mackinac Island, Michigan was very impressive. Indeed.

I checked this out to see Mackinac Island again. Years ago I was on a senior bus trip and walked the grounds of this magnificent hotel and had a buffet lunch. Cars are not allowed on the island but were allowed for the movie. Caught a glimpse of Jane Seymour who was filming for her bedding line at the hotel. Special features talks about the fan club and their reunions.

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!
