it's not a masterpiece, i mean the main idea was a little unoriginal and the ending was predictable, but it was a funny and enjoyable movie to watch, especially the chemistry betwean mel Gibson and jamie lee curtis(two great actors) and also elijah wood which was pretty great.

the trite pace and poor execution of a pretty good idea helped a little, as well.

except for one violent scene in the kitchen.. It may be slow to some...

While the film as a whole is only decent, it is fascinating to get a glimpse into the early film musings of Abrams.

But over the years, it went on to be an minor classic and fans of Gibson's work enjoyed it.

I enjoyed it just as much this time as when I saw it back in the early nineties.

all the pieces believably fall into their alloted time line, yet there is enough mystery and surprise to keep it interesting and riveting.

I saw it a few days ago and enjoyed it.

A young Elijah Wood is entertaining and sweet without being unbearable.

It's a pity Gibson didn't try more of these movies, as he truly is engaging.

The film was predictable and rarely entertaining.

What do you get when you mix a big star like Gibson with a sappy script and a mediocre director like Steve Minor: A sappy and contrived film.

Just for someone who have a broken heart, in the begining starts well on sci-fi genre, while in the future became a melodrama and some childsh acting, perhaps miscasting by Jamie and Isabel who weren't in same level of Mel Gibson, great to see Elijah Wood as a child, the picture didn't take off, a bit slow dow, although still interesting to see if you don't have anything to do!!

Quite Enjoyable, Most of the Acting is Good .

The story is cute, no oscar winner, but entertaining.

But mostly, it manages to be entertaining without offending anyone or forcing the issue.

The film takes a great premise and turns it into yet another bland romantic film.

Though not a plausible tale and despite its rather slow start, it does have an engaging plot and sympathetic characters.

It is a wonderful, compelling story of true love, a true gentleman and genuine friendship that crosses the ages.

Directed by Steve Miner (Day of the Dead "2007", House, Texas Rangers) made an enjoyable, if corny fantasy drama with the right amounts of comedy and romance.

Very nice story and very entertaining.

Bottom line: A few clichés, and a little overly-sentimental like a Hallmark movie, but still enjoyable and fun to watch.

Although I'm not one for science fiction, I found this film to be entertaining and rather wholesome, much to my surprise, despite its PG rating; we get to see Mel Gibson's naked tushie (Whoo-hoo!

His confusion and old-fashioned naiveté are subtly incorporated into the story, e.

Not a great film, but an enjoyable one that is also appropriate for kids.

Funny and enjoyable,not a masterpiece though .

Engaging fantasy that showcases Gibson at his best as a man thawed for 50 years, only to return in 1992 and play a pivotal role in the lives of every person he comes in contact with.

Exciting and captivating movie.

Enjoyable Picture.

This movie is quite enjoyable if you want an evening of simple entertainment that does have some meaning to it as well.

this film is supposed to be amusing and entertaining and to be "light" for it's audience,and imo it's very successful in it's own way.

Enjoyable movie .

Overall this is a solid and enjoyable romantic film that is a bit slushy and melodramatic.

The story itself is rather outrageous, but on a simple level, it's fairly enjoyable.

I surprised myself by actually liking it though and finding it all rather engaging and sweet.

like many romantic films, it is predictable.

Definitely not Mel Gibson's best work, but still an enjoyable film.

Forever Young is an entertaining movie which I will remember until the day I die the first day I saw it.

WATCH FOR THE MOMENT - When the two kids play around with the freezing machine, fidgeting with the buttons, and suddenly, it opens to reveal Gibson...

An enjoyable one that is also appropriate for kids .
