Movie Reviews

How I accidentally tripped over and fell (for a film!)
LastChance | Fort Worth, Texas USA | 02/23/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This was a movie, had it been listed in a tv-guide sort of thing, I wouldn't have watched. Flipping through all the HBO channels one dreary afternoon, and happened across "Twice Upon A Yesterday." For the most part, foreign films have never really interested me. But I thought I'd give this one a chance, as I had nothing else to do that day. Much to my delight, this unhearalded film was really quite good. I'd barely heard of Penelope Cruz, and wasn't at all familiar with the rest of the cast and crew. But I found the movie struck some cords, some sweet, some bittersweet, but overall an excellent balance of both. I found I could relate to the characters as they were portrayed, and it required little suspension of belief on my part. I was entranced with/by this movie. It's one of the better movies I've seen in a long time (this coming from a well-jaded amateur movie critic). It managed to be an entertaining comment on life without being too preachy. For this genre of movie, I would recommend without reservation!"
An excellent movie!

"This whole movie is good. It's not often you can sit through a movie and not get a least a little bored, but this one keeps you interested. The main character, Vincent, gets a chance to go back in time and fix a relationship he messed up with the woman he thought was his soulmate. Things change for him, but sometimes we find that GETTING the desires of our heart are worse than NOT getting them. Penelope Cruz is great in this film, and she's so sweet that you can understand how easy it would be to fall for her. Definitely a good date movie."
Very charming...

"I am a secret admirer of British Romantic Comedy because it is so much less sappy than the american hollywood dish and the stories seem to be much wittier. Case in point would be a lovely movie like Twice Upon a Yesterday where the character roles are very strong and the story is an intriguing twist upon a tried and true love plot. I enjoy the fact that this is not a love story about enemies and resulting vengeance, neglect, sadness, or hate -- but really about love, friendship, caring, and understanding. And good people shine: Penelope Cruz is all sweetness."
Wow! A smart, funny, completely irresistible comedy!

"Twice Upon a Yesterday is one of the funniest films I have seen this year! It is witty, romantic, charming and a must see! If you enjoy British comedies and if you like "Sliding Doors" you will LOVE this movie! =)"
