Critics reviews

Our old friend plausibility is among the problems… but Stiller doesn’t seem too invested either; the only bit of sophisticated cynicism is how quickly virtuous heroine forgets her scruples when bedecked in fine dresses. Still quite complex (the Russian general is a fool for love rather than a monster) and the Time-travel aspect is a big plus, as ever.
