Some wives complain that their men don't spend enough time with them. For Clare (Rachel McAdams) the issue is even more of a problem because her husband Henry (Eric Bana) was born with a rare genetic disorder causing him to involuntarily travel through time. Despite the obvious challenges, Clare does all she can to maintain their relationship.

Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in The Time Traveler’s Wife...

This romance with a sci-fi twist contains many views of rear male nudity (in a non-sexual context) and one scene of rear female nudity. A couple of scenes depict pre-sexual activity, including one where a man touches a woman’s breasts (with clothes on). A man is frequently seen stealing clothing and breaking into cars and buildings. A car accident is shown from the interior view of a car, which is spinning out of control—a child passenger has blood on his hands. As well, an exterior view shows the car hit by a truck and bursting into flames. A man is seen with bloody injuries on a couple of occasions, once from an accidental gunshot. A pregnant woman discovers blood on her pants and in her bed. The script includes discussions surrounding conception, miscarriage and vasectomy. A non-explicit birthing scene is included. A father teaches his child how to pick locks. Language includes a couple of uses of scatological slang, several terms of deity, a few mild profanities and one milder substitution for a sexual expletive. A man discusses using prescription tranquilizers. A man cheats in a lottery.

This is not a youth-friendly film.  The scifi element which may attract some isn’t explored, it’s just a dramatic conceit.  The romance plot is ‘mature’, and actually pretty boring.  See my review at:

This review was helpful to me.  I am writing a time travel novel and so any source that can give me ideas is welcome.  However, this review saved me a few hours - as I don’t think there is anything here that will help me.
