“Hereu0026#39;s a clue on how to watch this movie: If youu0026#39;re looking to be disappointed based on any inconsistencies, pay closer attention to the movie. The so-called u0026quot;inconsistenciesu0026quot; are actually based on a series of events that combine to actually change many of the things you end up seeing happening early on in the movie. Remember: The events that you see happening on the screen arenu0026#39;t happening linearly. The calendar hops all over the place throughout the movie, so it is possible for events that transpire one day to effect what ends up happening in future days. There are two days that are especially noteworthy in terms of what would change the events of the future and they happen toward the end of the movie. Think of how these events will affect the other events that happen in the future and remember that as you see what happens at the end of the movie.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI think the reason this movie hasnu0026#39;t been garnering a lot of critical praise is because movie critics donu0026#39;t really want to have to utilize logic while watching a movie. Another poorly reviewed film starring Sandra Bullock, the truly brilliant The Lake House, was an even bigger victim of movie criticsu0026#39; pathetically anemic logic processing skills. In watching both movies, you really have to keep your faculties alert and not lull yourself into a sense of u0026quot;okay, I can just turn my brain off now.u0026quot; And really, even though this movie isnu0026#39;t as good as The Lake House, it is equally blessed with the beautiful, talented Ms. Bullock, on top of featuring the beautiful, talented Nia Long, the totally likable Julian McMahon, and some very good acting by the child actors. And the film is very beautiful to look at, too; I now understand why Bullock was raving about the cinematography and direction.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSo please do see this movie and donu0026#39;t be dissuaded by the negative remarks. You really do have to pay attention to this film in order to enjoy it, but once you do pay attention, you will be richly rewarded. Iu0026#39;m glad I went to see it and so should you.”
