Slate: Send Rachel McAdams Back in Time

Posted on November 7, 2016 at 3:41 pm

Slate’s Heather Schwedel notes that Rachel McAdams has now appeared in four movies where her job is to sweetly (well, one of them not so sweetly) stand by as the man in her life travels through time, while she herself is stuck like the rest of us, moving forward a minute at a time.

Maybe if McAdams herself could go back in time, she’d rethink her agreement to appear in “The Hot Chick.” But I side with Schwedel in hoping that somehow, some day, she will get to do some time travel herself.

PS The movies are “About Time,” “The Time Traveler’s Wife,” “Midnight in Paris,” and “Doctor Strange”
