Movie Info

A high school senior and his friends invent a time machine so that future generations of students won't have to endure some of the more preventable adolescent pains, only to find that they have inadvertently opened a black hole in the process. Virgil (Jason Dolley) and his pals are determined to make life a little easier for the less popular students in their high school, and in order to make that happen they create a time machine. But strange things can happen when you go messing with the laws of physics, and when Virgil and friends open a black hole they find that turning back the clock can have messy repercussions. Sci-fi and comedy elements combine in a Disney Channel Original Movie that's fun for the entire family.more

Audience Reviews for Minutemen


The movie is not without its ridiculous moments, but I really enjoyed it. Snowsuit guys rule! (First viewing - In my mid-twenties)


Pretty good Disney channel movie about time travel and finding that maybe the things you want aren't what you really want.

Emily Rose

Not as bad as I had expected. The acting was better than most Disney Channel movies and it was a good film about the value of friendship. Didn't like the whole black whole thing, but I guess they needed some really big problem to occur.

Evan Dalton
