Storyline

Gruff, hard-nosed new boss Stanton takes over a scientific research company upon the death of his benevolent father. Scientists Manning, Gordon and White, who are very close to a breakthrough in time travel, are told by Stanton they must have results in 24 hours or face a funding cut-off. Trying to push their equipment past its safe operating limit they travel into the far future and distant past, with Stanton along as an accidental participant, unaware that a surprise awaits them as they struggle to return to the present.

Goofs

When traveling back into the past, we see visuals from WWII, the Civil War, and Indians attacking a wagon train; these events are out of proper sequence. The Indian wars took place after the Civil War and should appear before it when traveling back through time. See more »

Quotes

Dr. 'Doc' Gordon: The past, of course, still exists
Mr. Denning: Oh?
Dr. 'Doc' Gordon: Suppose a scientist on a planet some fifty light years from here were observing Earth, he would at this moment be looking at light rays that left this Earth fifty years ago. He might very well be watching the First World War. In effect, some full fifty years' of history would be contained in those beams traveling to that distant planet
Mr. Denning: That's quite an idea!
Dr. 'Doc' Gordon: It's more than an idea, Mr Denning, it's fact. And since space-time is a continuum, the present is ...

I was entertained
10 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I wouldn't say this movie is "bad" because I was entertained for the most part though probably not in the way the director intended. The cast is pretty hilarious. Just watching these four "characters" wandering about is a sight for sore eyes. I liked the Kissinger-look-alike Scientist, the white-machinist-looking businessman Stanton (reminds me of the guy who does/did the horoscope for The Onion), and especially his buddy who stays behind looking over the shoulder of "Dave" while making the most inane comments and looking cheerful throughout. The memory of the women standing by the computers out in back brings tears to my eyes. There's also an pseudo-intelligent little twist towards the end - and the ending was cool.
