Storyline

Tired of the drudgery of his daily routine, young Jimmy shouts out, "I wish time would stop!" Somehow, his wish gets heard by the master clock, and everyone (except Jimmy) is frozen in their tracks. Observing this catastrophe is a magical astronomer, who sends his daughter Aurora to talk Jimmy into helping her undo the damage before the evil Mr. Fig siezes the opportunity to take over the world. As Jimmy and Aurora travel to the end of the world to replace the Golden Globe in the master clock, they pass through strange new places, all the while with Mr. Fig trying to stop them on their mission.

It's not everyday a tree offers you a hotdog!
12 September 2000 | by (Portland, OR) – See all my reviews

What a film. Now some may find this film appalling, (but that's because you're sober Dammit!) but to those who appreciate the genius of Herschel Gordon Lewis, in all his levels should find this film as a gem in the rough. With classic lines such as "It's not every day a tree offers you a hotdog." This film is bound to entertain. To best appreciate this fine cinematic experience, I urge whom ever may wish to watch this to be highly intoxicated. The sexual undertones (overtones), really spice up this film, just like adding handcuffs to popcorn. Near the end of this film, jimmy shows his true acting ability, by appearing eager to accept a "hotdog."
