Storyline

Have you ever thought of traveling through time... going forward or backward to any date? That's the intriguing question aviator/inventor Max Knickerbocker (E.T's Peter Coyote) asks 11-year-old Jonothan Knicks (Huckleberry Fox of "Terms of Endearment"). Max is unaware that Jonothan is his grandson - already an adventurous time traveller thanks to a machine built by his neighbour, Henry Coogan (Academy Award-winner actor Art Carney). Can Jonathan save his grandfather from a fatal solo flight across the atlantic and alter the course of history? Written by Rick Brownlie <rick@cougar.multiline.com.au>

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
20 February 2001 | by (Chicago, Ill., USA) – See all my reviews

Although it seems to borrow heavily from "BACK TO THE FUTURE", this certainly qualifies as one of my all time favorite family films. Of course, I'm a fan of time travel stories anyway. Peter Coyote and Huckleberry Fox turn in a fine performance; as does Art Carney, who, prior to this, appeared in the awful "THE NIGHT THEY SAVED CHRISTMAS", one of my least all time favorite family films.

A worthy addition to anyone's video collection.
