[on the video after Jim is injured by a swing in the park. The Stranger is a park-keeper]
That's not very good is it, only getting a lollipop. What if you lose your head, will you get a packet of wine gums?

Low budget but appealing kids' fantasy adventure. A mysterious stranger presents a boy with a VCR that can "play" the past...and the future. How it affects the boy and his struggling middle-class family is the central story. An amusing running gag is a series of exterior shots of the family's house with various strange objects and/or people moving past (a UFO, a tumbleweed, runaway car, etc.) For us, part of the appeal of this movie was that it was filmed in an area of England where we later resided for a short time.
