Storyline

When Kirby inherits only one thing from his millionaire uncle: a pocket watch that can stop time. Only, the bad guys know that he has it, and will do anything to take it from him. But they don't know that he's found the girl of his dreams, and she's got a sense of humor that, when combined with the watch, is devastating. Written by Kathy Li

Trivia

The titular gold watch is not used for its time stop ability until 49 minutes into the film. See more »

Goofs

When the watch is used to stop time, the effect should be instantaneous from the other characters' perspectives. Whenever the watch is used, the characters are able to look around and speak for several seconds before the watch user reappears, but from the watch user's perspective, everyone and everything is perfectly still for the duration of the time freeze.

The end credits are shown over an image of the gold watch, open in someone's hand. See more »

Er, not quite...
25 October 2001 | by JoeveSee all my reviews

In the review listed initially on the site, it's said that the first thing Robert Hays does when he uses the watch is to undo the bikini top of a young girl. Actually, this isn't QUITE true: It's his girlfriend, played by Pam Dawber (who has a beautiful southern accent and a racy sense of humor) who does that, and Hays looks a bit (though not too) disapproving.
