After spending the night together on the night of their college graduation Dexter and Emma are shown each year on the same date to see where they are in their lives. They are sometimes together, sometimes not, on that day.
Rosie and Alex have been best friends since they were 5, so they couldn't possibly be right for one another...or could they? When it comes to love, life and making the right choices, these two are their own worst enemies.
At the age of 21, Tim discovers he can travel in time and change what happens and has happened in his own life. His decision to make his world a better place by getting a girlfriend turns out not to be as easy as you might think.
Emma and Dexter meet on the night of their university graduation. We see them every year on the anniversary of that date - July 15th. Emma is smart but success doesn't come quickly for her, whereas for Dexter, success and women come very easily. Through the years they grow apart as their lives take different directions and they meet other people. But as they grow apart from those other people and their lives start taking opposite directions again, Emma and Dexter find that they belong with each other.Written by
Dexter's 1990s television talk show is loosely based on the real life talk show The Word with Mark Lamarr. Like Dexter, Mark Lamarr would engage in awkward interviews with popular rap artists. See more »

As this movie is basically a love story between two characters,and they occupy most of the movie we should like and sympathise with them,sadly we do not. Emma is vague and stupid,and Dex is shallow and obnoxious.It is hard to get emotionally involved with them as they have no emotions. The surrounding characters (of whom there are very few) are underused and only sketchily written.One character that is written well(Ian) crops up so randomly that you cannot expect him to have,or emote,any real emotions,he is cardboard,Given that this is played by the excellent Rafe Spall it's a pity.Romola Garai and Ken Stott are allowed such brief parts that they are completely wasted. However,I think where the movie really falls down is,because each scene is set on one day (which then moves on a year or several years)we completely lose track of what,who and why is happening,and as such it can be confusing and annoying at the same time. The ending is totally believable,and one breathes a sigh of relief that it's the end of the movie. But no! We have an unnecessary(and confusing) epilogue. So,it might have worked as a novel, but does not as a movie.
