An archaeologist from 1000 years in the future uncovers a romance novel written in our time. Curious, he journeys back to find out about this thing called "love" from the novel's author.Written by
The money Pax brings with him from the future is real cash (although from 2012), so this cash would not be flagged by any bank as counterfeit. Also the bills would not get to a Secret Service agent within hours of being spent, more like days. See more »
It's something that happens when you meet someone that you feel deeply connected to. And, it's not like that connection is a product of anything, intentional, but rather, something outside, of yourself. Something that you can't fight. Something that was, just, meant to be. Something that makes you wish you could live forever so you would never have to be without it.

It's hard to find anything wrong with this movie. It's a fun fantasy...joyful, endearing, and *short* (clocking into a two-hour time slot at one hour and fifty minutes, *including* commercials).
Sara Rue is delightful, as usual, and looking great, as usual. (I thought she looked great even before her weight loss.) Her presence has never failed to brighten any production in which I've seen her.
Barry Watson plays "future boyfriend" Pax ("peace" in Latin) to perfection, with just the right amount of out-of-time awe. (In his time, the 32nd century, Earth has "evolved" into a "perfect" world without anger or strife, but also without passion or love.)
Set in New Orleans, the locale enables Pax to experience its renowned jazz music, giving rise to unknown feelings and leaving him less robotic in behavior.
Fred Willard, too, whose roles too often demand an over-the-top performance, comes in with just the right level of comedic inflection.
I even laughed at the wee bit of slapstick herein, a form which usually passes by me unappreciated.
All in all, watching this is a mood-lifter and time well-spent.
