19 So-Called ‘Comedies’ That Are Actually Super Depressing

About Time

Universal Pictures

Richard Curtis movies are normally filled with emotion (hello, Love Actually), but we weren't expecting too much of the heavy stuff in the 2013 comedy About Time. After all, it was a film about Tim Lake (Domhnall Gleeson) whose dad (Bill Nighy) tells him that the men in his family can travel through time. Light stuff, right? Not when you factor in the father-son relationship, the fact there are some things Tim cannot do and the relationship between Tim and Mary (Rachel McAdams).
