Storyline

Nick creates a time machine out of an airplane and a Commodore-64, and shows it to his friends by taking them 50 years into the future. Nick sells the technology to Gen-Corp, a high-tech firm run by J.K. Robertson, whose office is in the mezzanine of a shopping mall. Robertson, however, turns out to be Evil, and uses the time machine to plunder the future. With the lives of himself and his friends at stake, Nick needs to use his time machine to travel a week back in time and convince himself not to give the demo to Robertson. Written by Leo L.

Goofs

Matthew Paul speculates that if he put $100 in the bank then traveled 100 years into the future, "the interest alone would make you a millionaire." You'd have to deposit much more than $100 if you expected to get rich off the interest. No bank offers an interest rate that would yield $1 million of interest from $100, even if you waited 100 years before withdrawing it. See more »

Thank God for MST!
10 November 1999 | by (Lancaster, PA) – See all my reviews

This is another cinematic failure that would be stealing our time if it weren't for those wonderful, talented people at MST3K. This movie is about a physics professor(yeah right!) who invents a time machine(a plane which flies through really bad computer graphics). He is supposed to go visit other time periods with it, but it seems the past and future look a lot like today except with very slight, cheap modifications. The villain is a CEO who wants to use the machine for evil purposes. The movie makes little hint that he is a evil character from the beginning. He also talks funny. MST made great fun of this movie, and their episode featuring it is one of my favorites.
