Such a different premise and a wonderful movie. Although Reeves is not my favorite actor, he was great in this film. Jane Seymour never looked so lovely as in this timeless love story. Gorgeous costumes, endearing music, well rounded script, nostalgia at it's best...

Whenever I hear of a Richard Matheson story, I expect to be freaked out or grossed out. Watching Somewhere in times made me cry my eyes out. My new favorite "unstuck in time" romance.

If you love romantic tear-jerkers you'll really like this one! It's a classic. Five tissues.

I watched this Movie many times, with my Mother when I was a young Girl. Couldn't remember the name of the Movie, finally figured it out googling Christopher Reeves & Found the Movie; Somewhere In Time. It Is definitely the Movie, Just got it on hold to watch at my local Library, can't wait to watch it again. I Remember it being the most Dreamiest of Movies in a Beautiful Historic Hotel & Setting. The Actor's Reeves & Seymour where just Amazing in a world away but so close to my heart. Sweet time period that Girls back in my day, dreamed of living in. Puts you right back in that time, Beautifully done. Guess I'm a Hopeful Romantic & Historic Buff. Also found out that The Grand Hotel at Mackinac Island is still open, where it was filmed at. Another place I'll put on places to see in my Lifetime."Was So good to see this Classic Again, will be owning this one!"

Utterly insufferable. Boring beyond endurance. Emotionally phony. Production values are shabby, low-grade cheap stuff. Schmaltzy Rachmaninoff score gives this flaccid fiasco what small amount of oomph it has.

For reasonably obvious and necessary reasons the movie unfolds somewhat slowly.

It is an interesting love story with a major twist.

Not only is it a role with Christopher Reeves, whose career was cut short, it is a movie I really like. It is likely more drama and love story than Sci-Fi but I still found it interesting enough.

If you fancy yourself to be something of a hopeless romantic who really enjoys watching a love story that is preposterous beyond belief - Then - "Somewhere In Time" is just the picture to satisfy your tastes.

Released back in 1980 - This film barely makes up for its ridiculous plot-line of time travel by casting 2 very good-looking actors, Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour, in the lead roles.

Ah, yes! - The things we do for love.

IMO - This 1980 Chick Flick really should've come with a very stern warning advising all viewers that this intense tale of obsession was only meant for the hopeless romantic and that everyone else should watch it (with extreme caution) at their own risk.

Surprisingly written by SyFy novelist, Richard Matheson (of "I Am Legend" fame) - Somewhere In Time's biggest drawback was its repeatedly overwrought soundtrack music which was amplified so loudly at times that it became downright irritating, and, yes, intolerable.

But - On the other hand - Some of this film's location shooting on picturesque Mackinac Island, Michigan was very impressive. Indeed.

Christopher Reeve & Jane Seymour are beautiful in this movie, as is Christopher Plummer as the antagonist. The ending made me tear-up (don't want to say cry) and I just put in for it at the library. Whenever I hear the musical score by John Barry well, let's just say it's beautiful. Looking forward to seeing this movie again, ready for another tear-up.

I checked this out to see Mackinac Island again. Years ago I was on a senior bus trip and walked the grounds of this magnificent hotel and had a buffet lunch. Cars are not allowed on the island but were allowed for the movie. Caught a glimpse of Jane Seymour who was filming for her bedding line at the hotel. Special features talks about the fan club and their reunions.

Elyse (referring to the gold watch): "It's beautiful. Where did you get it?"
Richard: "It was...given to me."
