For All Time (2000 TV Movie)
User ReviewsReview this title
Beyond the acting I think this was the kind of film that hit a nerve with most people. The possibility of getting a second chance, as well as the idea of vacating the frenetic pace of our era for a simpler time is one many of us have have entertained.
I was hoping this movie would be available on VHS but it apparently is not. The next time I see it coming up I will be taping it.
Speaking of that other movie, in 2000, when this movie was released to the viewing public, it was one week prior to SIT's 20th anniversary Re-release on DVD. While some other networks rushed through production their own story that matched the general theme of SIT, this Canadian-filmed release seems to at least incorporate the main points of the established film. There was a watch, a choice, and a love story. Since SIT was set at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, the railroad connection was a bit of a reach, as The Grand Hotel was originally a railroad hotel.
All in all, this movie was an excellent production, due in no small part to the ability of its main characters to work within the framework of the script. Mark Harmon's moment of indecision on his last train trip does not come across a man who is lost, but a man who is taking stock of what is most important. the same can be said for Ms. McDonnell's performance in the film, as her embodiment of a woman of the time is well played.
All in all, A good film to watch when you can.
I just wish it would never end!
Great movie for a date - heck, you can always watch the end again in the morning, if you get distracted.
Yes, I agree with some others. This story, or certainly one of it's plot, manner, content, humor and romance (again, without violence)is so very refreshing. It would be exciting for me, anyway, to look forward to similar programming in the near future. Please continue, all those responsible, to make this valuable type of evocative, romantic and almost sublimely comedic entertainment. It is such fun to smile and just plain feel good after watching this Time Travel adventure.
Overall, a wonderful production I would definitely classify as a film that's great for the whole family.
Thank you for airing such a wonderful film.
Mark Harmon takes the part off so well as do the other actors in the film - it is strangely conceivable that we could travel through time and accept it -this is of course down to the script writers who are to be congratulated.
Although this is a précis of what I would like to write as a comment on the film I feel that I have covered all the points I wish to make.
Unfortunately, the clerk at Safeway can tell me the aisle where something is, and even though I'm near it, someone usually has to come and show me exactly where it is. Thus it is possible that there are several sources where I could get For All Time either in the VCR or DVD format, but I haven't been able to locate any of them.
My research has shown that For All Time is based on Rod Serling's Twilight Zone story named "A Stop at Willowby" Oh! As long as I'm on a roll here, I'd like to know if it is possible to get copies of Twilight Zone episodes, as well as those of the Carol Burnett show, especially the spoof she did on Gone With The Wind.
Please post how to access copies of these three items - 1) For All Time, 2) The Carol Burnett Show 3) Twilight Zone episodes.
