YMMV / Timeline

  • Adaptation Distillation: The film cleaned up quite a few inconsistencies in the book, tightened the storyline considerably, and gave Andre Marek and Lady Claire's romance some much-needed depth, but at the expense of removing much of the fascinating exposition about time travel and Flanderizing the characters into stock stereotypes of their books selves. General audiences and critics alike panned the film, with many saying that at best it was So Okay, It's Average.
  • Squick: The description of the tannery. Pretty much Truth in Television.
