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.

    For a Disney TV Movie this was surprisingly really good. I was actually amazed they pulled this off. Usually Disney makes their TV movies with the same basic formula, attempting to leave you warm and fuzzy inside. For some reason this was different. A time travel movie this is, but it differs with the advent of going back no further then 48 hours, for no more then 10 minutes at the risk of explosion. As they soon discover due to their age legalized gambling is out of the question, so they use their technology to become masked heroes who save their classmates from embarrasment. Known on campus as "The Snowsuit Guys" (but they prefer "The Minutemen"), and those they save quickly become popular by their peers. Of course not everyone shares their views on these masked heroes as the vice-princpial is out to catch and expose them, and many government agencies quickly take notice to something unusual occuring at the High School. So why are they running around in snowsuits? Well if previous time travel movies (<U>Back To The Future</U>)have taught us anything, the time travel vortex is cold. That's what I also like about this movie rather then ripping off movies from this genre, there numerous nods and references from its predecessors, for example the kids start a <U>Back To The Future</U> fan club, and the school dance has a 50's theme, as well a pet is named Albert Felinestein. Hey it's Disney you have to get cute somewhere. So how do three teenagers have a time machine? Well one of them is a 14 year-old supergenius. Hey it's not far fetched we have 12 year old getting their PHd in the real world. Well plotted, no obvious holes I can find (but this is a movie about time travel so there is to be a few inevitable paradoxes), characters were enjoyable, and salutes to films of the same genre. This is one Disney film I strongly recommend, also they left the film open for a sequel, which I hope gets made.
