This is probably the second (available) film that involves at time machine, the first being the little known Hungarian film Szíriusz (1942). See more »


When Susie and Bill stall for time by performing in front of Queen Elizabeth et al., they start off side by side. Mid-tune, the camera cuts to a different shot made out to be in real time, and Bill skips merrily from behind the time travel ball which is behind Susie. See more »

Good feeling movie. Good character actors.
18 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I liked it. It's a cute little movie. Miss Dall was the spark in it that kept it going. The ending could have been better, maybe left open the possibility of other adventures (a sequel or two). Would be nice to make a modern version. Maybe going back or forward to a few different places in time with some chase scenes and twists and turns, like losing one of the characters in an era and then returning to rescue them before an unfortunate event. I'm tired of all the special effect movies now-a-days with no real plot and aren't funny, that are violent and very forgetful. The effects used in the movie were nice considering they were from the forties.
