Sentimentally Joyful: About Time

On his 21st birthday, Tim is told by his dad that all the men in their family can travel through time. They can't go into the future... they can just go back to times and places where they have already been. But they can change things. They could use this power to make a lot of money, or to read books. Tim decides to use this power to get a girlfriend.

A deeply sentimental movie... actually a completely joyful movie about life. This isn't primarily a romantic comedy, but a series of lessons about living life. There is no major conflict here, no immense tragedies. Just a series of everyday events packed in peanuts of laughter and smiles. 

No, it's not penetrating, nor is it important. Rather, it is a film that makes you glad to be alive. 

And makes you want to call your dad.
