Two young men, one in need of medical attention, are cryogenically frozen in the early 1960s. The two are preoccupied with the fact that the police are pursuing them to realise what they are doing. The next thing they know is that they are in a strange new world (thirty years on).Written by
Brian Wimmer (Willie Husband) and Colleen Flynn (Jessica Husband) also starred together in the tv series Flipper (1995). See more »
It was 1962. Willie and me had been traveling through the night, running from a crime we never committed. Willie was still driving pretty good, considering he had a bullet in his body and all.
[to a dozing Willie]
Sure is strange to be driving on this side of the road...

I've not seen this for several years, and I hope I'm not exaggerating this recollection, but there is one thing about this film that you might find interesting: one of the main characters is portrayed as mentally challenged. ("Mildly retarded" is an old fashioned way to put it.) Throughout, he is treated as a 'person', rather than a 'problem'. This character is done so well, and with such grace - and the manner in which he is treated by the other characters is so decent - that I would recommend seeing the movie if only for that. Otherwise, I remember it as a quirky, pleasant movie... the kind that you feel good about afterward, and were pleased to have spent some time with.
