Timer by Jac Schaeffer, 2009 (R)

with Emma Caulfield, John Patrick Amedori, Michelle Borth, Desmond Harrington, JoBeth Williams, Kali Rocha, Muse Watson, Mark Harelik, Eric Jungmann, Tom Irwin

In this comedic fantasy, science has facilitated the search for a soul mate via biotechnological implants that count down to the moment one is supposed to meet his or her match. But Oona (Emma Caulfield) is worried: She's nearly 30, and her TiMER isn't ticking yet. Will her dream guy get snatched up by someone else? John Patrick Amedori co-stars in this film from first-time writer and director Jac Schaeffer.

This was a total discovery, random choice. The first minutes of the film, I almost stopped, and then let it flowed a little longer, finally I watched it till the end. What is great about the movie is that it is a science fiction movie with a completely normalized context, on a earth as we know it, with its daily routine. Nothing much as changed except for the incorporation of one tool that helps you find love. Brilliant. The plot is almost solid (almost because something in the end doesn't make much sense), the acting is fine, sometimes a little hysterical, the dialogues witty, overall, a strange romantic comedy with a unique tone.
