So in an effort to inform those who might be interested in watching the movie after reading the book, I watched the Time Traveler's Wife with Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana this weekend. Its different than you might expect if you haven't, or even if you had read the book because it is so spot on to the book. So if you loved the book, you'll be happy because they stayed true to the meaning and storyline of Audrey Niffenegger. If you are expecting a lighthearted romance, I would read the book first so you aren't too shocked. I think the book sets the reader up better understand what is going on, otherwise its definitely a more tragic movie ala Benjamin Button, but still a very good movie if you don't mind a little melancholy.
