I read The Time Traveler's Wife awhile ago. While I enjoyed the story, I had some issues with the author's writing style. It's not something I would have recommended to conservative person or an older person, because I felt that the author used the f-bomb a little too often for my tastes, but that's beside the point.

The story was beautiful and I had been wanting to see the movie for awhile. E hasn't really been interested in watching it, and I can't say I really blame him. So I've been putting it on hold for a good long time.

Well E has the blorch. Got sick out of no where this morning and is currently in bed, sleeping the sleep of the just and the nyquil induced. I'm still awake, so I go to see what's on our on demand premium channel free movie list.

There it was. Figured, why not? It's not too long and I can sit and watch it while I do other stuff.

The movie barely touches on what the book told us. It's like taking some of the high points, and I guess, if you haven't read the book, it is very good. I really enjoyed it and it did something I haven't experienced in a good long time.

I cried. Even though they changed the ending - I cried. The book's ending would have made me sob, so I'm a little glad they didn't end it the same way, but at the same time, I loved the book's ending. It was a good ending, it tied what the movie told you together beautifully, but it was so different. It was a Hollywood ending.

I haven't cried at a movie in a long time. The last scene in a movie that was supposed to make me cry didn't. I felt that feeling I get in my tummy that happens just before the tears start, but they never came. This time I felt my eyes fill up and my vision blur, and honestly, I enjoyed it.

The movie was worth it.
