Is it worth giving the film The Time Traveller’s Wife a chance? 5 years after reading it, I still get all weird-feeling

5 years after reading it, I still get all gut-twisty and weird-feeling from The Time Traveller’s Wife.

Is it even remotely worth giving the film a chance? I HATE book-based-movies that fail and ruin the book for me…..
