Netflix Picks: TiMER

March 22, 2013

TiMERI wasn't sure what I'd think about the movie TiMER. The description intrigued me enough to put it in the queue and watch it.

If a clock could count down to the moment you meet your soul mate, would you want to know?

In kind of a future now, someone has developed a timer that can figure out when you're going to meet Mr. Right or Ms. Right so that you don't have to worry about making a mistake and marrying the wrong person. The timer (branded “TiMER” by the manufacturer) has been around long enough by the start of the movie that adolescents automatically get one.

The main character has to decide what is going to be best for her – to know or not to know. You can imagine the trials and troubles that could arise in such a situation. The movie is kind of a dramedy, part drama, part comedy. I thought it was kind of weird at first, but in the end I decided I really liked TiMER. I liked how different people came to choose what they would do about finding true love.

4 stars, Really Liked It (per the Netflix rating system)
