The Story that is My Future Boyfriend

Pax is a scientist living a century ahead in time and makes an ultimate journey of discovery by travelling back to 2011 in time to comprehend the emotion of love that is not there in his age/world. This is generally what My Future Boyfriend is about and brings Pax197/341 played by Barry Watson together with the beautiful Sara Rue in a journey that will touch everyone and leave some avid lessons in the mind of some. Pax is at the height of an archaeological dig and comes across time capsule with romantic novel that was authored way back in 2011. He is evidently intrigued by the love concept and he goes back a century  back to meet Elizabeth Barrett, the author, and he gets more than the learning he was after, actually falling in love in a romantic way with Elizabeth.

 As My Future Boyfriend takes root, the arrival of Pax makes Elizabeth to begin questioning the relationship she has with Richard, her fiancé, played by Justin Smith. Trouble follows suit after Pax is picked up by the feds as a result of counterfeiting thus missing his only transport in time to go back home. This makes Bob, played by Fred Willard, a colleague, to run back into 2011 towards rescuing his friend. The movie is part comedy and partially sci-fi although it mostly revolves around fantasy. It is a light-hearted kind of tale, telling about modern romance including the power that true love has. The reality is the story is far fetched and hard to consider although the delightful nature of the odd couple of Rue and Watson is fun and easy for anyone to be draped in their interesting relationship. Those who are able to put aside their sense of  logic and reality will find the tale as quite inspiring, telling about unlikely love including the optimism of healthy yet romantic lovely relationships.

However, it is worth indicating that My Future Boyfriend is not that kind of movie you can share with some young members of the family as a result of the different references, in a multiple way, of sex.  The appeal that Pax has on viewers is the naiveté on romance and love that follows a rather insatiable curiosity on sex he comes across in the book written by Elizabeth. The movie has been able to limit much of the physical contact on kissing only but since there is persistent reference to the subject of sex, while Elizabeth is obviously dodging and uneasy on the issue, it will definitely have young child gears vacillating, thus it is important to save the movie for adults and teens.

Unless you are involved in teaching children the different love values that manifest in the movie, it hardly teaches them anything. The movie has only kissing but hardly any sex, something that makes it a rather good watch for most in the family. While Elizabeth is in the process of getting married, she remains faithful but does fall for the innocence that Pax exudes and he in turn finds that she is the only one she really wants.
