Goofs

In the scene where we first see the geek's clothes stolen from his locker from the bullies, when he goes upstairs to ask for them back, we see a wanted poster for the snowsuit guys behind the bullies, but nobody knows about them yet, because the Minutemen have only used the time machine once, and they didn't have the snow suits yet. When they go back in time to save the geek, and he goes upstairs again and the bullies are waiting for him, the wanted poster is gone. See more »

Quotes

Charlie Tuttle: [about to step in his time machine when he notices what Zeke has in his hands] Oh, yes, we mustn't forget the grappling hook.
Zeke Thompson: Oh, everybody's gotta make fun of the hook... you'll be sorry.

Adorable but somewhat overdone.
31 January 2008 | by (NY) – See all my reviews

The main characters in the cast were totally adorable, but it was kind of annoying when typical Disney made all the adults into stupid nut-cases who treat kids terribly. The plot was also fairly good, kids going back in time to save the geeks from embarrassment, but I think they got a little carried away towards the end with the black whole. When Charlie (the younger super-genius friend) ran into the FBI and suddenly exclaimed "four hours until the end of the world" I couldn't help but laugh, as it was just far too over-the-top. Overall the point of the movie was pretty cute though, accepting your past, learning popularity isn't everything, and loving your friends for who they are.
