Watch: Amusing 'One-Minute Time Machine' Romantic Comedy Short
"My five year old niece 'likes' science. I have a doctorate in quantum mechanics." What would you do if you had a device that would allow you to skip back on minute in time? Is there much you could do with that extra minute? Or would it just become a problem? One-Minute Time Machine is a fun short film made by filmmaker Devon Avery that originally premiered in 2014 and landed online in 2015. But that doesn't mean we can't still feature it now! I just came across this and it's so amusing, the perfect little short to make you laugh, in barely 5 minutes of time. James is all too eager to put his one-minute time machine to use in winning the heart of Regina, until he discovers the unexpected consequences of his actions. Starring Brian Dietzen and Erinn Hayes. The dialogue is so witty, even if it's a bit cheesy, it's all enjoyable in a cute way.
