When an unusual classified ad inspires three cynical Seattle magazine employees to look for the story behind it, they discover a mysterious eccentric named Kenneth, a likable but paranoid supermarket clerk, who believes he's solved the riddle of time travel and intends to depart again soon.

  • Pretty wonderful

    By Fletch F. Fletch
    There’s some pathos here, a lot of humor and legitimate heart. And there’s some great twists. It’s a joy to watch.
  • Slow and humorless

    By thealucia
    The movie banks on its actors to do all the heavy lifting, since director is mostly calling it in and the script doesn't really have a point. There's some flimsy thematic thread that brings all the plot lines together, but it doesn’t resolve any of them, nor does it take them to any type of climax. Stunned by all the gushing reviews. Maybe it's an age thing...

    I love this movie! It does have some cuss words but not many. I do not see why it is rated R. You HAVE to watch this movie!!
  • Funny and fresh

    1/10 It seems the director of Jurassic World has made yet another terrible movie that suffers from it’s own sentimentality. Listen, if I loved this movie as much as the tomato meter says I should (a ridiculous 90%, are these critics out of there minds????) then I would be the first one to tell you guys. But no, I didn’t love it, in fact, I hated every minute of watching it. Lets just face it, as much as you say you like Mark Duplass in this movie, there is something deep inside you that secretly hates him. Trust me, it’s okay, we all have it. Also Aubry Plaza, I mean, I used to love her Parks & Recreation but Aubry, listen, your getting typecast as the sarcastic girl. Do you want to always be the sarcastic girl in movies???? I know your a better actress then this garbage. Also, the music. Oh gooooodddd….the freaking music!!!!! If I want to hear garbage indie music for an hour and a half I would look up garbage indie music and listen to it for an hour and a half, I don’t need a movie for that!!!! Okay, Im done ranting. I need a glass of water, I’v been getting panic attacks lately, thinking about how I wasted my time on this garbage. Life is short people. Don’t watch this movie.
  • Amazing

    This film has such a complex story line yet somehow remains so sweet and simple.
  • ohh yes

    what an awesome film, so good.
  • Not so much "time travel"

    By MadisonBlues
    I love anything time travel so when I rented this on iTunes for that reason I was expecting a movie on TIME TRAVEL. The time travel part is about .05% of the movie and the rest is about the characters, which aren't that interesting. It might of been better if the lead lady could of actually ACTED, but she was horrible. She had one "emotion" setting and used it for everything and that was boring. Also didn't like the seemingly pointless other garbage going on, mostly immature writing. Some good points but not enough. I give it 3 stars for the ending alone, the rest is 2 stars.
  • Loved this movie!

    There wasn’t anything I didn’t enjoy about this movie. I bought it so I can watch it over and over. Just a really excellent story. A little quirky so it won’t be for everyone, but I highly recommend it.
