TiMER is the most awesome and epic movie EVER. Basically science has found a way to estimate the time you will meet your soul mate with 100% accuracy. All you need is a TiMER, and they need one too. Then at midnight the day before you meet them it goes to all zeroes and when you make eye contact with them the next day their timer and yours beep at the same time and “you just feel it”.
In the movie the main characters timer is blank because her soul mate hasnt got one yet. This causes a bunch of problems and most of them are heart wrenching and dangerous but you understand her point…she wants a guarantee she’s not wasting her time and she’s with her number one. Doesnt everyone want that? Well not really apparently, because many people actually havent gotten one yet which you’ll see in the movie.
The movie makes you wonder what it would be like if, and maybe even wish, TiMER’s existed. I mean, what would you do if you had a guarantee that someone was your soul mate? What if they were a serial killer or something? My best friend Justin actually raised the point that the TiMER’s could be a scam, with the government doing eugenics (or selective breeding) but I don’t see how that’s possible because the TiMER’s have a countdown…I don’t see how the government could predict that. Either way makes you wonder!
I REALLY loved the movie, but it left me kinda upset and heartbroken over one event which you will figure out, and in case you’re confused it has to do with her sisters TiMER. If it were in theaters I’d recommend you go see it, since it isnt I recommend you hire it because it’s well worth the money and the watch. ‘Scuse the pun.

Here’s the official websites description:
What if a clock could count down to the moment you meet your soul mate? In this alternate version of present day Los Angeles, a revolutionary device called the TiMER fulfills this very fantasy. For a reasonable installation fee and a moderate monthly charge, a TiMER is implanted in the wrist and promises to accurately display the number of days, hours, minutes and seconds until the owner’s date with destiny.
However, things aren’t so easy for Oona O’Leary (EMMA CAULFIELD, Buffy the Vampire Slayer). Oona faces the rare dilemma of a blank TiMER; her soul mate—whoever and wherever he is—doesn’t have a TiMER. While her family and friends move through life with predetermined romantic fates, Oona searches for her perfect match via the process of elimination, tentatively dating TiMER-less men, but never getting emotionally invested. Often, Oona even convinces her suitors to get TiMERs, only to have her hopes crushed time and time again. Staring down the barrel of thirty and tired of waiting for her would-be life partner to get off the dime, Oona breaks her own rules and falls for Mikey (JOHN PATRICK AMEDORI, Gossip Girl), a charming and inappropriately young supermarket clerk with a countdown of four months.
But what will happen when those four months are up? Only when Oona ignores the ticking clock can she finally experience the exhilarating and unpredictable hot mess that is love.
