I have thought about this movie since I first saw it when I was twelve.
I loved this fresh concept and remember talking about it and the awsome power the watch would give the bearer for years after with one of my friends. I don't know if I have seen it since the first air date, but, I still remember the premise of many of the seens, like never stop time while your in a moving vehicle or you'll hit the dashboard at 60mph.
I also remember the sequil was good. Allthough it still bothers me that in the first seen of the sequil the uncles video message says that they would have already figured out that if they used the watch a certain number of times in so long it would never work again.
Recently I saw a video at my library called "Clockstoppers" it was from Nickelodian Productions and was geared toward young male teens. It wasn't in the same leage as I remember the "Gold Watch" Pair being in, but, It definately provided a fix for a movie I've wanted to see again for years and I would say it's worth the time to see it.
The problems with "Clockstoppers" were; It tried too hard to explane the science of something made up for a movie. It tried to be to hip, allthough the target audience might not mind.
