Vox mentions a "Time Machine" musical (With the year 2006) and starts singing a song with the lyrics "There's a place called tomorrow...". Such a musical and such a song do not exist, although its composer Andrew Lloyd Webber most certainly does. See more »

I thought it was very clever that by moving far into the future it was like moving into the past (this is a new approach in time travel movies).
However, that is really the only thing I liked about the movie. I thought the movie lacked believability, and I didn't really understand the main character's rationale for making certain decisions once he arrived where he was.
Too bad, because I had been looking forward to this movie since I found out it was being made months ago.
