2.5 out of 10 Not my Cup of Tea
Liam from Kilkenny, 02 Jun 2010
I didn't especially like this movie partly because I dislike Jim Carrey's frenetic approach to acting. I wouldn't recommend it particularly but there were aspects I did like, not least the juxtapositioning of past and present, obviously designed to confuse the viewer but justified at the end I suppose. I enjoyed the film up to a point and aspects of it were intriguing but overall I felt the extent of the complexity was excessive given the storyline but maybe it'll be simpler for other viewers

0.5 out of 10 Not Much Good
Caroline from Laois, 06 May 2008
Went by all the reviews here. Sat like a tool watching a complete piece of piddle. OK, Carey presented a likable character. Winslet was a tad bit OTT in my view. Yer man from Lord of the Rings was pure weird. That dreary blond girl in the clinic was rubbish. Her name escapes me but I think she was in Spiderman? I don't rate this film much, others think it's the dog's X - I just kept watching cuz I thought it would pick up. OK ending. Too long. Too silly to relate to. Quite depressing. Skip it.

4.5 out of 10 Hang in there...
Chris from Dublin, 05 Apr 2007
I love Kate Winslet, I admit it! But believe me when I say it's out of no great bias that I have to say I loved this film also. Have to say, it took me a while to figure out what was happening as it flicked back and forth with the timeline (a la Pulp Fiction). But it's worth sticking with it as the beautiful atmosphere of the film envelopes you, draws you in and makes you wonder about your own relationship. Wonderfully acted, it achieves a rare feat: a film I want to see again soon!

5 out of 10 Eternal Sunshine and Real Scientific Possibilities
Victoria from Cork, 22 May 2007
This is certainly one of the best films of recent years, and one that touches on current scientific possibilities (memory suppressing medication is being tested). I don't know why I feel such an infinity with this movie, possibly because both my patner and myself can identify too well with the central protagonists (even to hair colour and hats), or because we have deep interest in neuroscience and its potentials. I can not recommend this film highly enough. Wonderful.

4 out of 10 Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind
Emmet from Wicklow, 04 Apr 2008
A bit of a weird plot - A man, Joel Barish, heartbroken that his girlfriend Clementine underwent a procedure to erase him from her memory, decides to do the same. However, as he watches his memories of her fade away, he realizes that he still loves her, and may be too late to correct his mistake. Strange to see Jim Carey in this role but he plays it very well, as does Kate Winslet, in her role as Clementine. Great movie

What's it about....
Joel (Carrey) and Clementine (Winslet) have always had a tumultuous relationship but Joel is shocked to find that Clementine has had all memories of their relationship erased. In order to forget the woman that he still loves, he decides to undergo the same highly experimental procedure. But as the painful memories are erased he begins to remember the passion and love they had for each other and so he tries to hide these memories in other parts of his brain...
