I really liked The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. Though there was some odd moments, like the weird fascination with the painting, I don't remember any major plot points that were glossed over. If you want another film by the same director, then check out Summer Wars. I would definitely say it's better than TGWLTT.
There were certain aspects of the story that were just... unexplained, or nonsensical.
-Why was that guy so fascinated with that painting that he would travel through time just to see it? That was never explained, and it seemed to be kind of a big deal. After all, it was the entire reason EVERYTHING in the story happened. If it wasn't important, then it only served as a distraction, and the film would have been better without it.
-I found it really odd that the aunt knew so much about time jumping, and was discussing it so nonchalantly. It doesn't seem to be THAT common of a phenomenon; the only reason Makoto was able to do it was because of device that Chiaki brought from the future with him (and lost, which was pretty much the most irresponsible thing you can think of)
-The first time Makoto jumped through time on purpose, why did she warp back to the point when she jumped after a short amount of time?
-If Chiaki wanted to bang Makoto so much, why didn't he just... go back to the future, get another charge of time leap energy, then just warp back?
-That time when Makoto is afraid that her friend will crash into the train because her bike brakes are busted: Nothing happens the first time. But when Chiaki confronts Makoto over the phone about time leaping, and she resets time for a few minutes to try to avoid that conversation, why does her friend end up dying that time? Nothing major had changed. It was just out of the blue.
-The characters were likeable enough, I suppose. It was kind of cute to see Makoto try to solve all her friends problems and have it all backfire on her. There were a couple of laughs to be had, but overall, it just didn't click with me.
