A 1939 test pilot asks his best friend to use him as a guinea pig for a cryogenics experiment. Daniel McCormick wants to be frozen for a year so that he doesn’t have to watch his love lying in a coma. The next thing Daniel knows is that he’s been awoken in 1992.
User Reviews: When I was watching this last night, I didn’t realize it was written by the creator of "Lost"… and I’m glad I didn’t know that, because it would have tainted my opinion.
I expected a sappy love story with a sappy Mel Gibson who takes a nap to wake up and find himself falling in sappy love with the ugly, but sappy, Jamie Lee Curtis and adopting her sappy and bug-eyed son, Elijah Wood. Bless my lucky stars, I was wrong. Mel Gibson is frozen by Norm from Cheers after his girlfriend goes into a coma. He wakes up in 1992 (he slept in 1939) to a whole new world. No sappiness, and Mel Gibson wasn’t even sucking as hard as he tends to suck (see "What Women Want" for really hard sucking).
I really liked this film, it kept me from going to sleep on time. You’ll like it, too, and maybe even more if you watch it with a date because it’s really about how love lasts forever. (They say "diamonds" last forever, but those materialistic bastards wouldn’t know real love if it woke up from a 50-year slumber!!!!) See this movie soon, because you never know when your last chance to see it will be.
