As she turns the car around, a tow truck plows into her, a hit and run, leaving her to die. A meteor hits the moon insetting off a chain of events that now creates snow falling in Sonoma County for the first time in 78 years. While freezing and helpless she dies again. An ambulance arrives and she is revived by an EMT's defibrillator similarity to her first death being revived by lightning strike.

In the hospital she wakes up to Ellis. A youngish stud named Ellis Jones Michael Huismana man who earned his wealth as a college student when he invented an algorithm that had economic applications, falls in love with her. Though she rebuffs him, for very practical reasons, he is persistent and before long, she falls for him against her better judgement. We see, via flashbacks, how she once fell in love with an American man during an English sojourn in the early 70s'. Later, after the relationship gained momentum, we see her in a cab, en route to her lover, who sits on a park bench with an engagement ring in his hands.

She tells the cab driver to motor on; thus abandoning another love; sparing he and herself heartbreak. This moment in her life will figure prominently later in the story.

The film reaches a climax during a Jones family weekend get-together when Adaline meets Ellis' parents. His father William Harrison Ford and Adaline are dumbstruck when they meet. It turns out one might have seen this coming earlier in the story William is the man Adaline left waiting on the park bench.

William, stupefied, tells Adaline she bears an uncanny resemblance to a woman he was once close to named Adaline Bowman. Adaline has the presence of mind to explain she is the daughter of the woman and mentions, to William's sorrow, that her mother passed away, years before.

The ruse seems to work, though Adaline's presence stirs William to distraction, which causes his wife Kathy Kathy Baker great anxiety as she becomes suspicious of her husband's past. But during the weekend, William catches sight of a scar on Adaline's hand, which he remembers from an accident in the past.

And what do you think happens? Ellis arrives in hot pursuit, hoping to rescue and reclaim his love. During this scene, the annoying, omniscient narrator returns to describe in detail--once again--the miraculous chain of events that follow.

I'll leave the rest to you to suss out. If this all sounds like fascinating material for a great movie, trust me, there is less here than meets your heavy eye-lids.

Among the film's legion of shortcomings is Adaline herself. For a year-old woman in a twenty-something's body, her life is stubbornly ordinary and it leaves one wondering why eternal youth would be wasted on someone so vapid. Yes, we see she can kick butt at Trivial Pursuit during the Jones family weekend and has exceptional powers of perception but so what? What else is there? Other than being unable to have normal relationships, what does her condition mean to her?

Might there be advantages in being a hundred year-old twenty-something? Sure, it would be a hassle to have to change one's identity every so often but would it be such a drag to be perpetually in one's sexual prime? The film doesn't have the imagination to explore any idea the premise might engender.

Harold Ramis' Groundhog Day shows us what it might be like to live one day over and over again in a very inventive and clever way. I wish The Age of Adeline had one second of that film's wit and whimsy.

I found little things vexing too. The fact that William gave up medicine to become an astronomer is a big deal in the story, as is his discovery of a comet.

So why does Ellis have a book on astrology in his bedroom?

Wouldn't the son of an astronomer know the difference between his father's field of study and a pseudo-science?
