Michelle Williams is embarrassed by her involvement with this picture, to the point that she and some of the people involved with the film decided to turn the 'M' in the title upside down and call it "Timewaster." See more »
Here's the plot (as far as I could tell) -- There is an advanced race of Aliens who have mastered time travel. The only use for this these aliens can come up with is apparently for a game. They travel to various planets and use its populous as pawns in a sort of futuristic game show. They eventually suck the life force out of the planet and turn it into a blue liquid that grants them eternal life. (I think)
Pat Morita is a part of this alien race that for some reason forms a bond with this boy. (The reason for this is never made clear). This boy somehow realizes whats going on and with the help of Pat Morita sets off on a serious of adventures. (This part doesn't make much sense either). Apparently the end of the game on planet earth will end up in a nuclear war in 2006, so stopping this eventually becomes the focus of the plot. (Sorta)
Oh, for some reason the boys parents are involved in every 'game' throughout history. I think they're alive, but maybe they're dead.. I'm sorry, this doesn't make any more sense when trying to relate it. This movie literally makes NO sense. The basic premise is pretty neat in theory.. but its like watching every other chapter of a story driven series. At no point do you really understand whats going on. Its all just a mess of scenes linked together with some sort of time travel/alien game gimmick. I'd highly recommend avoiding this at all costs unless you're in need of 90 minutes of pure confusion.
