Relaxing to watch on a Sunday afternoon
3 January 2004 | by james-neulingSee all my reviews

If you are looking for one of those films that will fill-in a couple of hours on a Sunday afternoon, then this is it. The plot is pretty thin, but there are some well known faces that carry off the roles well, and will even give you a few laughs.

Most of the time watching the film, you spend thinking "was life really like that in the 80's - I thought we were so cool".

Anyhow, the plot centres around a time machine and a couple of office workers trying to use it to get rid of their boss (by making sure he was never born).
