This film permanently ended plans for two productions based on H.G. Wells' "When the Sleeper Wakes", the 1899 novel on which this film is loosely based. One proposed production was by American International (long shelved due to the high proposed budget) and the other by producer George Pal. See more »
In the hospital Woody Allen's character has on his doctors hat on wrong purposefully. However, in the chase scenes while fleeing and outside the hospital it changes and is on correctly like Diane Keaton's character. See more »
I haven't seen my analyst in 200 years. He was a strict Freudian. If I'd been going all this time, I'd probably almost be cured by now.

I think I am going to have to rank this as Woody Allen's second-best (and second-funniest) movie... after the unbeatable "Annie Hall". Even after having seen the movie 3 or 4 times I still find myself amused by some of Allen's shtick... and his rarely-demonstrated adeptness at physical comedy. So many classic physical bits: riding around in the wheelchair... eating the rubber glove... the future scientists trying to force his slack body into a futuristic vehicle. After this movie Woody started to get a little too cerebral... this was his last attempt at a just-plain-funny movie... and probably his most satisfying of his early comedies... only because there was a sort-of storyline. Woody is cryogenically frozen after a botched operation in the 1970s and is awoken 200 years later to find himself in a repressive Orwellian future. He meets up with a spoiled rich chick (Diane Keaton) and influences her (not really intentionally) into becoming a revolutionary activist.
