Netflix Surprises: TiMER

Click to watch here!

TiMER's another one of those movies that no one has seen, but Netflix Instant Streaming's inner-suggestive tool said that I would give a high rating to. I'm not one to really "like" romantic-type comedies, so I was a little put off at first.

But this movie is astounding. For being a romantic comedy, it's incredibly well acted, and the story is very original, albeit a little illogical.

The movie is about this invention called a TiMER. Everyone gets it put in their wrist, and it's a biological clock that gives you a countdown to the exact day that you meet your soul mate. Then, on the day of, when you see your soul mate, it rings.

The drama comes in because in order to have a countdown, the person you're supposed to end up with also has to have one installed, and the main character's countdown hasn't started yet.

It's very fun to see the people cope in a society where everything is predetermined and there's not really any risk involved. Yes, there are a lot over philosophical undertones, but that really doesn't get in the way of anything. It really is just a straightforward romantic comedy, but it works in a way I haven't really seen in a romantic comedy before.

Add this streaming movie to your Instant Queue immediately. Maybe you'll have to wait a few weeks for Halloween season to pass before you're in the mood for something like this, but once you are, take advantage of it, because it's one of the best movies on Netflix streaming. It's an excellent story that most anyone can enjoy.

This is the type of movie that keeps me trolling the streaming list instead of just saying, "There's nothing but B movies here." I had never heard of this movie, either, when Netflix plopped it into my recommendation list. I like the fact that it is a rom-com that gives you something to talk about.

I agree this is a good film. I wanted to watch it, because the main star is Emma Caulfield (Buffy). Come to find out this was a pretty solid film, with good acting.

Very cute movie. I've heard some complain about the ending, but I thought it was great. Afterwards, I had a pleasant, hopeful feeling.
