Joel Barish, heartbroken that his girlfriend underwent a procedure to erase him from her memory, decides to do the same. However, as he watches his memories of her fade away, he realises that he still loves her, and may be too late to correct his mistake.
I like both leads in this. Winslet is a female favourite and Carey a classic in some of his film ventures, but this never engaged me. I didn't get the connection between Clementine and Joel at all. Yeah, opposites attract and all that, but Clementine seemed like an annoying dill, Joel a depressing sad-sack and I couldn't see the relationship working. So when there are problems in the relationship from the jump I'm meant to care as the viewer? The plot about removing memories and such was interesting, and the subplot links nicely in with the main characters' issues but nothing is that special about it and some scenes felt somewhat disjointed. 3-2.5.
