Gives a whole new meaning to time capsules
19 February 2000 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

I thought this was a very funny comedy. The sets used were very realistic, looked just like some of the furniture we used to own back then. The acting was right on target, the dialogue was interesting and amusing, and the story was well done. Made me wonder if this could happen, only not on such a large or lengthy scale. 3 stars.
