YMMV / Time Changer

  • Critical Research Failure: Believe it or not, the film industry did exist before the 1930s and the Hays Code.
  • Family-Unfriendly Aesop: Russell's original manuscript was actually rather progressive (for him), as it advocated being a good person and doing good deeds because it's the morally right thing to do, rather than doing so because of your religious faith. In the end, he's convinced by the "evil" future where people actually follow this and have become more non-secular as a result, that you can only be a good person if you accept the Lord.
  • Fridge Logic: Russell's friend tells him the time machine can't be used to bring objects back in time if those objects haven't been made yet. By that logic, how can Russell travel forward in time since he would be (and is even mentioned to be) long since dead in the present?
  • Narm: The desperate attempts by this film to show immorality while still clinging to a tight, constrictive moral code make them hilarious. Example: young people singing the joys of alcohol. Not a specific type of alcoholic drink, alcohol itself.
  • Sidetracked by the Gold Saucer: This is how many of the modern churchgoers are portrayed.
