Storyline

A man breaks the fourth dimension and sells his find to Bob Evil without thinking he'd have to go back in time to fix everything Bob Evil messes up. Meanwhile, the SOL is just driving about time and space until Mike utters the words "Lost in Space," which encourages Tom and Crow to act out dialogue inspired from the TV show. When Mike botches a parallel parking job with the Widowmaker, he and Pearl exchange an unlikely light hearted conversation into why she's so evil while Tom hogs the TV remote control on the Satellite. Later, in an effort to help Mike's lot in life, Crow uses their time machine to go back to Wisconsin in 1995 where Mike is working at a cheese factory and talk him out of getting into temp work later on. Mike's band becomes his all consuming desire and Crow goes back to the present to find Eddy, Mike's abusive older brother who fills Crow into Mike's new fate, which isn't pretty at all.

One of MST3K's not-too-bad movies
22 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Of all the moronic movies that the MST3K crew have riffed, "Time Chasers" is of itself not so bad, but of course Mike and the Bots make it a delight.

In a nutshell: A guy invents a time machine for use in a Piper Cub-type airplane. He demonstrates it to a girl friend and a business agent for a trip 50 years into the future where everything is great.

Skip forward... a merchandiser gets in on this act and the future is changed for the worse. Later they all end up in Colonial Times for some action, and then crash from that era to the present day. Killed in the crash is the girl, but wait, her present day self is still alive and well. Huh?! Kookie but it all ends on a comical happy note. A bizarre sort of movie to watch but fun, and the MST crew never run short of wise cracks. A "thumbs up" all the way around. Mike Palmiter, Williams, IN.
