As Time Goes By

I watched this movie not expecting a whole lot. To tell you the truth, the only reason why I pressed play in the first place was because John Patrick Amedori is in it. Timer is about a fantasy device that calculates the amount of time left until you meet your soulmate. If you get one and it reads: –:–:–:– then your soulmate does not have their timer yet. As soon as they get it, it will start counting down. The movie follows a woman named Oona (Emma Caulfield) who has had a timer since she was young. It is almost a family tradition, and a part of adolescence that she has missed because her timer isn’t ticking. One day, she meets a checkout guy at a supermarket (Amedori), who has a timer. Oona isn’t usually the type that has flings: she only dates men who don’t have timers because that means that they are potentially her soulmate. When she brings them to the Timer store, and they get their timer, they are never synced up with Oona. I hope you’re still following me here. The whole moral of the story is: if you could know who your soulmate was, would you want to know? It is a question that Caulfield and Amedori’s characters struggle to answer throughout the film. Definitely a comedy with sentimental value. And the movie leaves you with a question: would you want the ability to know who your soulmate is? Comment below and let me know what you think.
